Updates

I’m running this earlier than usual because the time it normally goes up is also the time the waiver wire closes for the day and that’s going to dominate the talk once we get there.

Husso was in the starter’s net.

Hischier blocked a shot and Tatar had “maintenance day” kinda stuff, so I’m assuming they’re both in.

Keys to the Game

Play from in front: Seriously. Quit giving up the first goal.

Put the puck over Brendan Smith’s head. One of the core memories I have of Smith with us is that there was never a puck over his head that he wouldn’t wildly swing his stick at, regardless of whether it was a good idea. I miss that.

Simple Shit: The stuff like “keep your stick on the ice around the opposition’s net” and “don’t just take the easy ice because it’s offered” is easy to get away from. Stick with it.
