McLellan cites power play as problem and solution
Todd McLellan talks after the Sharks' overtime loss to Calgary, analyzing how the power play got the Sharks out -- and back in -- the game with the Flames.
It was gonna summarize a real quick -- power play took us out of the game and that allowed us to come back into the game but. We had enough minutes left column on the exit to we should have been able to be skins momentum from it and we didn't make any -- from three games and expect next. The other two role playing that way right now there's 29 other teams that are. We're battling no way I thought we were. A little less energetic. Later in the game that we we gave up two shots in the third period so. You know you we came we can use that excuse that would like we're not going to fight through our place in the second period it in the last thirty seconds which he had a lot of push. A lot of aggression. It would blow it and reading tomorrow too and and impose our will against them and in that situation and we were very clean we were sloppy and they -- your -- standing retrieving pucks clearing them. As it goes on you more frustrated and should start doing some things normally don't. -- give their penalty -- him credit for Phil and off on the game winner it guys maybe a little bit on this team. No we had a real faceoff in the zone and and we talked about using time hopefully we like the players that we had the -- search for -- fail. And it was one of those plays were -- -- Hesitated and actually on the faceoff -- on the loose puck and by the time he got to the lane closed and I'm sure wished you would have gone past. Stage and I believe it was rather than into much -- Comfort zone with the points and -- week. No one is better than none but that's our goal was so we're disappointed leaving I thought we played. Small enough to get to. It's what we're we're not going home from. -- Coach was very good source. You know he he was all over the park Q Donald didn't in the water just comes and came -- loose pucks first line -- so. Could be up here with his play considering. I hit a couple dry spells -- lost my success it's. Going to see importantly there. It's. A little more from second on. Second third fourth lines we. You know use a word -- usual suspects and in Edmonton against maybe -- two goals from -- we need Warner or two and -- from. From some guys that haven't scored a long time you know you look at Torrey Mitchell's been able to hit the scoreboard. I think Jim Vandermeer at the scoreboard against Edmonton -- -- -- put -- them out there as much from. From anybody else in the for us to be successful and must be some doubts were. I've been doing -- teaching moment like. I thought he got some energy tonight. Created some chances and his best chance you looked off Greg -- more want to -- Mosul. But I thought he had some energy I thought he he contributed.
