For the Winnipeg Jets, this situation is cruel: despite their best efforts, they still cannot offset Edmonton Oilers Connor McDavid and Leon Dreiser Two superstars.
Result: The Alberta team won the fifth game in seven games between the two clubs. Since the last two parts of this series will be held on April 26 and 28, the solution must also be rolled out quickly.
“They have a dynamic force; Adam Lowry of Jet Center pointed out in a video conference after the meeting that they took advantage of multiple opportunities in this situation. Even if they tried to neutralize them, their two major players The player still seems to be on the score sheet.
“Going forward, this will be one of the challenges we face, how to eliminate them slightly. I think we have guys here, we have a team that can do it. This will be to solve these problems and do it for the next two games Get ready.”
Lowry is known for his defensive performance, and he has little idea how to prevent the two players from making a difference.
“They are two incredible players with incredible talent. They lead the scorecard for some reason. [Il ne faut pas] Give them a lot of space, you have to force them to stop and start again, and follow them when they get the puck. They are world-class players and they will have a chance. This is the case where the number is limited to three or less. This is a goal. “
However, you must not indulge in the existence of McDavid and Draisaitl. Lowry and his head coach Paul Maurice did express the old adage that the best defense is offense.
“You can’t just go out on the ice and try to play a defensive game against them. Laurie believes that you have to walk on the ice and try to get the puck around and get some opportunities. You can’t just focus on not allowing the goal. .”
Morris said: “They scored goals in the game against us, but I think we did a good job against them.” But far away from them, we did not produce too much. “
The Jets currently rank second in the North with a good record of 27-15-3, scoring 57 points. The Oilers are behind by three points, but there are two games left.
