What Has Changed In The New Year

There isnt really any way to get around this. We have played horrible this month. Our three wins this month have been less than convincing, aside from maybe the L.A game, and even then they had a rookie goalie in his first NHL game. Our game against Carolina was an shootout win, the game against Ottawa required a comeback in the third and an amazing Kozlov effort in OT. Aside from that, our play has been very suspect, and it is showing in the standings, Carolina is only 5 points behind us and Tampa is starting to hit their stride.

My point here is discussion, what do our boys need to do in order to turn our game around and get some consistent play?

Send down Jim Slater or Niko and call up Haydar so we can get some more scoring.
We need to stop taking bad penalties and work on pp/pk

you really believe Haydar is the solution? No offence but people say the samething about Krog and he didnt make it happen.

Something I have noticed about our PP lately is that everyone cycles and passes the puck to Kovy for his shot. Plan B is to get it to Hossa down low for him to come out of the right corner. I can't remember the last time we tried a shot from the side boards on either side. I think that HiBob needs to take Kovy off of the point and move him down low and create 2 units. One with Kovy, Metro, and Sim down low; and one with Kozlov, Hossa, and Mellanby down low. I think the PP would improve for the time being if the it seemed that the point wasn't feed it to Kovy for that slap shot with every pass.

Forcing the PP on Kovy is getting too predictable...

The offense is never going to score when all 3 forwards are having puppy love behind the net. NO ONE ever goes to the high slot looking for a feed. Our forwards all charge to the puck and there is no spacing whatsoever. This also makes it very easy for the defense to collapse and block any shots we actually do manage.

Our "lack of power" play is stagnant and the other goalie can take a coffee break and eat a donut on a 5-on-3.

I've noticed this too...lots of times, someone will make a great centering pass into that high slot area, and it just goes through it, subsequently clearing the zone. Thats balls. Mellanby does it on the Power Play sometimes, thats why he gets all those deflection goals...

We need Sutts back & in game shape...and can you believe Hnidy flipping the pick over the end glass from our D zone on that PK? So Habs score QUICK on their 5 on 3 (it's called attacking the net Bob not passsing it around the perimeter), then score again 5 on 4 and took control of a close game.
