Basic PP principles. Get someone in front of the net and shoot the f'ing puck! The Jets NEVER have enough traffic in front of the net to get any good garbage goals.
Our PP is a continuation from last year. Same with our PK. Not getting any better. You'd think if it ain't working they would try something else. Passive PP and passive PK. Teams press the puck and we cough it up or can't get it in the zone, can't set up in the zone. On the PK we let other teams move it around almost at will.
Time for some lineup changes. Let's see Scheifele , Peluso and Redmond. Newbies play with energy and the rest of the team picks up on it. I was concerned that the Jets would come out flat and they took flatness to a new level. When the team was flat then Pavs followed and was flat. Maybe Pavs was flat so everyone else followed. Anyhow, however disappointing, we know this is a team in transition and we're not contenders yet so we can expect more games like this. Good to see us comeback from 2 goals down. Good to see Olli get his first. And it's good to see that we're getting scoring from everyone.
Onward and upward to Florida. Time to take this out on the Panthers.
