12.26: ANA/SJS postgame -- Todd McLellan
McLellan admits the Ducks outworked the Sharks the final 13-14 minutes of the second period, which was the difference in the game.
Third period we did we we started to establish our game again but it was -- it was too late. It was disappointing thing was we we had a lot of momentum in the second period to a point we'll get user title we had them pinned in there and and and that we turn it over and ineffectiveness and -- we didn't tackle well and they. My opinion they don't work just lost thirteen fourteen minutes of the period a grind -- Simplify their game kept some in there and are in pardon me for for a lot of them. The break helped us. Went out to third but to actually. It is what did you team takeaways from this this game what parents. Lessons can you take from -- -- going to make sure it will be disappointed we should be. Two more practice you'll love. Good opportunity to address. What we'd like to what we didn't. I think the ability to rebound in the third and and -- a lot of pucks out with a lot of traffic. Holes it was a good sign but the the swings within the game via the game changing moments. Something we can't you please vote. Obviously separate games but the three losses to Anaheim is there -- common threads between all of them. -- tour in October with a new coach so they're all losses are all one goal losses in the we're disappointed about was there they're good hockey club the place -- -- -- I thought anymore I just I was talking to -- actually I thought you made two or three incredible saves really really good saves that. You know kept us and kept us alive. But then he'll tell you that -- like a couple -- And it's going to be a little frustrating for him little frustrating for us as well. -- are awful lot of point shots and I was a more opportunity yours at different mindset than that he's. We've talked to voted as a team we we feel we have some good shooters back there. There's times were trying to be too cute too pretty with it. The velocity on the shot isn't always the important. Part of it it's it's getting it to the goaltender sore. Our forwards that go there can be rewarded and I think at times we're we're too worried about us. The strength -- the the firepower behind it rather than just the accuracy of getting it there but. -- did throw a lot of pucks and boiler let us with the trucks articles. A lot getting through and some second chance to give them credit they put water on the net. Frustration often talked about the turnover. Turnover -- turnovers. You know you can zero in all -- -- I don't know from. Is it. More frustrating when it's somebody that you know it is one of the leaders -- veterans on the team while. The last time I checked he was human and he's gonna make mistakes too so. And he does a lot of really good things for hockey club and and -- this -- 100% what he'd like to have that moment back absolutely. You know he'll tell you about and I think it's pretty evident but -- -- does a lot of good things for our team. And into the fact that here he's allowed to do that some are not allowed to do we don't want him to do it. Ha but when you know the -- you play that many minutes you're going to make some mistakes in the other team's -- Cowboys. It's such as when you have a document. Has -- groups -- -- it -- -- Toward him. Was here I think when we when we meaning you guys and maybe even us a little bit come into the game you we look at their record and -- -- you know it's. The Sharks a win and that's just -- -- -- the only obstacle. When I see gets -- Brian area. You know some of those guys Fowler. It scares me on the scares me is a coach because they have the ability. To be very dynamic team and very good offensive team and they were good enough and it went.
