Keys to Winning against Ottawa

  1. Play fast and hard. Stick to your gameplan
    1. Some of Ottawa’s younger players like to play the body don’t let them get you off your game.
  2. Defensive positioning
    1. Don’t take try and come in with the mindset that you should beat Ottawa. Be hard in the defensive zone and keep in position.
  3. Powerplay
    1. Got one last night hopefully that kick-starts the powerplay
