5.11: Sharks practice -- Todd McLellan
McLellan knows what's at stake as he keeps his team postive about Game 7.
Is there enough -- Better today and will be game time decision. Felt in for treatment how to work so excuse teammates part of the meeting. So we're we're looking forward to him chance for tomorrow. What's or what's what's the proper approach for this team right what. There's so much you. My because mentally think -- -- You know the mental part of it is when you think it doesn't matter how we got here and whether it was a real leader or win one lose one. What matters is what you put that we put into the game tomorrow. And I will be the mental approach reaching those individuals and there should be -- -- there's a level and their commitment level -- proven it before. It's matter -- bringing to the -- on the next. We've talked a lot. There's -- momentum. Created -- each game -- to invest -- today. Absolutely. You know when you look at the series. Each of the home teams have been able -- create a little momentum early in the game and go for it from there they do very good job of that game six with us on our heels. I didn't think we skated through world team orders holders like. Don't think we could be -- out more so it will be an improvement at all about. Expect the best from -- to the twenty guys who play in that sense that this team to raise there game. You have to. Individually collectively as as a complete team -- have to raise it a little bit because we're we've been the last three games hasn't been enough. The holes. Enough so we need just a little bit -- more. Not talking about 10% were talking. Fraction more from each of the individuals. If you want your. Or. Well they have to do. What they're required to do and that's to lead the team. Produce. The effect of all over the ice but they can't do it as a threesome. Or is -- from any support from from all their teammates from their line -- through the goaltender from the -- And you know we'll look for wouldn't. Expect. It. -- I want him to be relaxed -- of the team -- on him to. Mentally be engaged. As an individual but also take care of everybody else in the locker room. Again we're confident that don't -- card. Of sorts of confidence. And we're we're disappointed group or -- But it was very easy again to address. So over shortfalls in the starting with the -- Not skating. And we had our meeting and we had a skate when it was home -- it gets ready for more. Three games that's it. Powerful way the needs to be sharper needs to get us -- all but when you look at the games it's gonna trade off. So five on five plays is. Feel of ultimate importance to us but we do need a power play to get them or we welcome Michael Moore and are our top players play in that situation -- On an ongoing basis they've been together for. For three years something. And they have the ability to do you expect tomorrow. Shouldn't test and it's it's. No new York and we just address that it was. Does that rank him treatment. All those -- Morgan if you can play it. Just. I know. Obviously not but I don't know if we're really give our -- an opportunity. To have success because we skated against what we're. We got going a little bit -- with the lines back together in the third period. But with all -- -- still Vick scrambles finding. Somebody to fill his shoes and fellow all. The real planning -- plan B. -- with Chloe and slower three. And three. Maybe four. My experience with teams sevenths. I don't have a lot of national hockey in my years in Detroit. But -- I experienced back to back himself and in our Calder cup room. And we lost in game six. In the semifinals won game seven and -- Calder cup finals Boston in six and one himself so. But I don't think. We can. If we go back who can all talk or game seven history and whatnot and you keep -- to come back to try to talk about coming back from 30 deficit won't talk about the teams and of a fall behind and one. Sole function properly when it comes down to a sensible tomorrow's game. Moment colonel history one way or the other but there -- Well it's adjustments. Or. Adjustments just little things. Neither team's change in this system. There are some adjustments to try to make some adjustments and definitely -- we've made a few. I'll throw our game so there are adjustments that are made through this series but wholesale. System changes systematically doesn't out of this and -- you don't have time. -- Guys. -- -- Both yup the evaluation. Process. As far as last night's team goals is the same as it would be an exhibition game and once we collectively looked at. Public group played how we played to our identity and what we want to do on the ice and then we break it down into individual stuff the individuals either positive and negative. Collectively the teams he's good about and areas of concern trying to address. Couldn't keep this. Country. Western. Indeed it could be many things it could be over thinking Damon and -- nervousness. It could be just lot of energy levels. Could be I don't think the other team could be a skating union does not catching up. There's a lot of factors that come into play but I do know I know we can skate. It's some sort. This thing -- just -- in some ways there's. Well we've we know people that we rely on we have things that we can do for any game either change lines there. Over change the matchups. There. It. Well it can be you know we we believe will start -- certain -- You know we have to and thinking positive and believe in our guys that they're gonna come out and play but that doesn't go that way. And we quickly enough to adjust and that can be again anywhere from making slight changes to match ups to. To using -- time -- You know different scenarios. Systematically you can just minor things. But really we've again we've practiced all year and played all year to get to this point. Wrestling alliance with so there. That being Asian states all quiet part which is there an element also. This quarter and missed them. It is it's you know we're. We're into a cliche heaven right now.
