Keys to the Game

Key One: Decline any Powerplays

If the coaching staff is going to refuse to make system changes to the awful powerplay, at least don’t make us have to watch it.

Key Two: Start on Time

So many times when a game starts earlier than usual, the team gets off to a rough start. Don’t do that.

Key Three: Score more goals than Florida

Obvious? Yes. But I’m not wrong.
