Lindy Ruff post-practice


‘We are not trusting the system. We are not trusting as a five-man group, each other, and that workload gets disjointed. And one person without working in unison with the other people isn’t going to do any good on the ice. From that point on, and I think I’ve seen it in some other games, when we’ve had the mishap or the goal has gone in, we haven’t stuck with it. We had a long discussion after the game and had another long discussion today about the system and how we need to play. The disappointing part is we’ve been in this situation now probably three road games in a row. You can call it bounces, you can call it whatever you want, but you still have to stay with it. And after that point I didn’t think we stayed with it.’
