In the fierce competition for the Eastern Conference Championship, if the Pittsburgh Penguins are to end their strong performance this season, forward Jason Zucker will need to make greater contributions.
Now, Zucker hopes that Sunday’s 4-2 loss to the Buffalo Sabres will herald better days. This is also the thinking of his head coach Mike Sullivan.
The pilot told the “Pittsburgh Post” that: “We must do our best to make’Zac’ have a greater impact on the game.” I hope this network will increase his confidence. He is our important player, and he is still a difficult problem for hockey players. “
Moreover, the skaters concerned obviously have to make adjustments.
“I recently had some discussions with him. Sullivan said it was about simplifying the game and moving firmly to the network while still sticking to hockey. I think his performance has been ups and downs in recent games. However, I think he is playing with Jie Jeff Carter played well in the game.”
However, the “pen” may be satisfied with the performance of other key elements. Sidney Crosby (Sidney Crosby) and Jake Guentzel (Jake Guentzel) accumulated 50 and 46 points respectively. In terms of defenders, there is also offensive support, especially the support of Quebecman Christopher Letang. He ranked fifth in the National Hockey League with 35 points, and his blue line teammates Mike Matheson, Cody This and Brian Dumoulin all reached a stable level of 10 points.
All this made Sullivan very happy, and he emphasized the quality of their work.
“They defended our territory well when we needed it. They also supported attacks and helped us launch attacks, whether by pushing or placing ourselves on the blue line of opposition. He explained that they were our attackers. Provided the necessary support. Without the participation of these guys, it would be difficult to be well prepared for offense.”
