Getting Better . . .But No Goals Yet
- Updated: March 22, 2009
A more Hitch-like period, and we started to get some momentum and possession time toward the end of the period, until the penalty. Good kill going, but great save by Mason on Weiss.
Much improved in the faceoff circle, and tighter defense. We are slow on the battles to loose pucks, and are weak on the puck along the boards in our own zone. Commodore not strong with the puck at all so far. Boll has shown a lot of energy.
Shots favor CBJ 20-17, Hits also in our favor 20 – 18. Faceoffs now favor the CBJ 18 – 14 so they had a huge period in the circle. More of same needed.
You get the feeling that one goal for us will open the floodgates. Need all out effort in the 3rd. We slowed them down that period, and hopefully will do it again here. Go Jackets!
