⬛️🔶Weekly Review pt. 1🔶⬛️
🔶Summary: This week had a start that made Ducks fans sick. We dropped our 3rd in a row in a pathetic home game against the Blues. During this post game report (and last week's report), We touched on some points that we needed to start winning. In the past three games, we really lived up to the expectations of those points. The 3-0 shutout against Vancouver was just a simple game. Balanced offense and balance defense. The main takeaway from that game was secondary scoring. The team proved that the RPG line wasn’t the only effective one, and the Fowler, Montour paring proved that they were perfect for eachother. The next 2 games were pretty similar to each other. Both games resulted in 4-2 victories and included even more secondary scoring. Both games featured playoff vibes in Honda Center, especially against long time rivals, the Red Wings. Even though, the Devils are much better than the Wings, I was much more proud of the Wings game. It really reminded me of a playoff game. It featured 3 fights and some great battles. Besides the first game, I consider this week a major success.
✅Positives: Not including the first game, we played very balanced, generating a perfect amount of offense and defended well on defense. We played with our emotions and with major physicality. Goaltending was clearly special, but nothing else was insane. You could tell that the players knew these games all had playoff implications. Our powerplay, once again, was nearly perfect. Our discipline was also better. Hopefully we can keep this up on the road.
⛔️Negatives/Areas of improvement: Not much here. One thing for sure, is we need to stop allowing the cross ice passes that lead to easy, guaranteed goals. It would also be nice to see a bit more pressure on the puck.
