“That’s something we’ve been working on the past couple of days—getting into the middle of the ice, the scoring areas,” said Brown. “We’ve probably gotten away from that this year, as a whole. We need to bring awareness and focus to getting to the middle of the ice, getting into those good scoring areas. If you get a lot of our players into that area, they’re not going to miss too often.”
If Brown is right, and there is a lot of evidence that he is, then why did it take 55-60 games to (hopefully) address the problem? It's these types of statements that get me really, really frustrated. This has been an ineffective perimeter team the whole season. Not just related to Brown but to the entire management structure, where's the leadership?
The team should never have gotten into this hole where they are scrambling for a 7th or 8th seed.
