Worry that you can't protect leads that you get.
EXACTLY and this is a bit part about my points on this year.
In the past WE WERE ALWAYS PLAYING CATCHUP.Now we've played solid 1st where we didn't push it and become impatient but rather played solid and simple hockey that has gotten us a good amount of leads, something we're definetely not accustomed to.
Holding onto those leads comes with being comfortable with the system and finding that fine line between playing solid defensive hockey and sittinmg back to the point where you let the other team back into the games.That doesn't happen overnight and that will get better as the season goes along.
