Can't Blame The Penalties

Posted by Nigel Cammack on May 13, 2013 at 12:29am 0 Comments

One excuse you can't use in the post season is the penalties. Especially if your team has clearly been undisciplined. The playoffs are not the regular season. Read that again. I say this because this is the time of year when some teams step up their discipline and others don't. Some teams still allow themselves to get upset with minor things the opposing players do in a game and then they retaliate. There are two main reasons you cannot do this in the playoffs. The first, if a team is skilled enough they will eat you alive on the power play. Second, even if the team isn't good enough, the power play by itself will throw a team off their game. The team that takes constant penalties, or even just a couple, don't have the chance to get their four lines rolling or get into a groove. That groove or rolling of lines is needed to build momentum and hopefully tilt the ice your way and eventually score a goal. If you are a playoff team your special teams should be good enough to either kill the penalty or score on the power play. If you can't do either, then you don't deserve to win games. Now it is possible to kill all the PP's but you have now broken your groove. So don't blame the penalties if your team can't be disciplined enough in the playoffs. Blame your team. Sometimes it takes looking inward to see what your team is actually doing wrong. Stop always looking for the excuse and start making your team accountable for their bad decisions on the ice.

Becoming A Blog Site!

This site will probably become more of a blog than anything else! There hasn't been much activity from the Real Fans or myself. So what I think the new idea will be is to just start blogging as much as I can until the activity picks up. It's almost playoff time and I am going to try to chat as much as I can during that period. I hope to one day have the activity pick up and the site take off, but for now I am just going to release what is on my mind. It'll probably be more about the Pens but thats what I need all of you for! Input from you on your teams. It's hard enough to follow one. Let alone all thirty! LETS GO HOCKEY!
