2.13: What's in Store presented by Hockey XSport
Examining the Sharks' matchup with the Panthers in Florida.
Those are they an unmistakable. -- my -- the more offensive radio play by play man. -- -- -- -- of what's in store presented by outback sport superstore which takes us about your Sunrise, Florida where we're welcoming Jamie baker. -- anybody do a radio call or this game and jamiat -- got it now. Had to do you have -- Randy smaller ask play by play calls ready for this morning and you're more the color guy but you're -- get them to do I don't crazy. I don't know that stands stick and I'm not gonna start doing it but I -- with Randy Mueller. Way back in. The Tibetan minorities days. He was a teammate of mine for a little bit where he was a character that and I does a great job here. Pretty good stuff it certainly entertain you know you gotta it would sort of wrap it up later hockey. You gotta find a way to entertain him. I didn't some questions -- pros and picks up again what do you. Obviously every game has playoff implications but at this point in the season. It is starting to be more of a playoff atmosphere inside that dressing room. Well I would say sell you out because they know. Where they are in the standings I mean here's a team that. Coming up but I'm not knowing one run and they're right in the thick of the playoffs are only three points from being in ninth place self. You know they're not in twelfth place anymore they're right in the thick of it in their two points behind being third place so. It's going to be tight the rest of the way he'd take -- you don't have a game for a couple of days and there's a bunch a games in the Western Conference were seen. Close games thirteen games a lot of three point games you can lose ground very quickly so. -- every point you know I know every game counts leasing it back in October -- in November. But can the guys feel it now absolutely especially when you get within those those last twenty games were almost they're not there yet once he gets about the sixty game -- 62 game mark. It's going to be playoff hockey the rest of the way. Yeah update you know they can't think about this road trip and think about is winning trip. This week streak at their bodies something that while. Now we've lost a game doesn't matter what you write that you have to continue on playing the way that the forget. They have to have a terrible memory of what they've done over the last you -- -- here just forget about keep playing that sort of hockey if you -- ever worried. A ball -- Sharks going into the playoffs and being a little bit not complacent or that's no longer they're going to be fighting every. Step of the way leading to the playoffs I think that's a good thing for the Sharks I'd rather let's get into power plays in the Sharks they haven't cashed in on the few they have they have had a whole -- them. I'll play Todd McCullough says it's about hard work and creating opportunities how'd you do that. Well I think the biggest thing is you got to move your feet up any time. You create -- you've created by being the aggressor you'd be it by not being the first guy have a fore check and get that hit in. And don't retaliate obviously top quality guy that does not like retaliatory penalties 200 feet from your own goals so he's a -- stickler on all sorts of things but. To get at least you've got to created by using your legs. -- and I I agree Brett you know -- one of my cookies they're my second he has when the short races when those six to ten foot races. And it's not always good to win the race to the pockets we might -- reestablish body position. You wanna -- hooking penalize tripping penalties interference ballots and it is that. You have to establish body position and you constantly established body position after reestablish it by winning a short races the other thing. I think one of the reasons Sharks haven't drawn as many penalties lately as they have been spending as much time in the offensive zone we've seen them play a much more defensive oriented game. They spent more time in the defensive zone a little bit they've got good sticks and whatnot but if you wanna drop penalizes a lot easier to do when you're in the offensive zone. -- real quick break stay out of our pleasure we see Logan pitcher a little bit more about how are quite fine thank. That's a coaching question really I mean he's having a great -- yeah how the big guys out of there there -- four. I look at it as you know he can -- got your number one power play. The Rams of those guys had just come off the ice time that you gotta go the other guys you really up to power play units you hope that they can intermingle. So I think pitcher's gonna get some good power play meant whether he should be on the top one that's that's -- to -- -- has now. Yeah -- topic on talk a little bit about you know they don't get a lot of power plays right now he can't find yourself. Dealing your work your way through the first bitter about power plays so that might lead him if you're right base if they haven't gotten just off the -- -- the are rested. It sure is rested and somebody hasn't produced or getting out -- -- at our place I would look to see look mature get some more opportunities in situations like that.
