It's definitely an area we need to improve. If we could have improved our power play last season, just four or five per cent, we would have been in the playoffs easily.
"Shawn Horcoff" is a Canadians/Canadian professional ice hockey Centre (ice hockey)/centre for the Dallas Stars of the National Hockey League (NHL). He was selected in the fourth round of the 1998 NHL Entry Draft, 99th overall, by the Edmonton Oilers, with whom he played 11 seasons and served as team captain during three seasons.More Shawn Horcoff on Wikipedia.
He is really good on penalty shots. He sold the backhand hard, and made a great move.
Every goalie we play against seems to have the game of his life against us. We created some excellent chances but we couldn't finish any of our chances off. Even with all the penalties we had to kill, I think we created enough offense to win the game, but when he's (Miller) making save after save, all you can do is keep shooting.
It's second nature to play a simpler game on the road. That's probably why we have a better record than at home. The proof is in the pudding.
After you take that much time off it gives you a chance to kind of step into it easy. Yesterday and today we kind of felt our way into it; we don't want anyone to come back and get sore. We're going to pick it up in the next couple of days and by early next week we'll have our team together and be up to speed.
We never give up. We wear a lot of teams down.
Nobody wants to play 16 games in 30 days and have to win 11 or 12 of them just to put yourself in a good position. That's why we view these games before the break as very important for us to win. These are huge games.
Terrible. The worst I've ever been part of since I've been a professional.
We've been in a lot worse situations. We're happy, but not satisfied with where we are at the break. For us to be (three) points up and not six points back is going to be huge for us.
