Senseless penalties need to stop now, as they only hurt the team moving forward. I trust the coaching staff to drill power play setups during the week, and I remain hopeful that one day they find a format that clicks. At least, that is my dream.
5x5 this team can skate with JBSU, and we showed that against Duluth on saturday night, as well as absolutely dominating a gopher team in Vegas. This team has the drive, and they have some motivated players (lines 1 and 3 have been outstanding).
Move the feet, stay out of the box, backcheck like mad, and don't take a shift off. Scheel will be there, a nd the points will come if we stay focused. Waver from that, try to drive coast to coast and make it happen on your own, or make a lazy clearing pass that gets picked at the blue line...pay the price.
UND 3-2 Friday. We'll discuss Saturday tomorrow.
