The 34-year-old goalkeeper will be looking to celebrate a first win, he who has seen his team-mates silenced during his first two appearances at the net.
“We create enough chances to score. We’re missing finishing just showed Martin St-Louis, at the end of the morning practice session. And if it’s a matter of finishing, there’s no point reinventing the way we play. You just have to capitalize. »
With that in mind, visiting the flyers might be timely. Mike Yeo squad ranks fifth among most generous teams since the start of the season (279 goals against). They have allowed four or more goals in each of their last six games.
The Canadian’s head coach also wants his squad to try to favor sustained attacks in enemy territory rather than just shooting at goal.
“We have to be a little more strategic. Of course the quantity (shots) is important, but can we also produce a little more quality? Can we get more people on the net? Can we be tougher?” he asked.
A first for Harvey-Pinard
St-Louis will make some changes to his lineup. Thus Jordan Harris will return in favor of Kale Clague on the catwalk. Like every time he removed repeated the Rookie of Lavallois that it was nothing against the young man.
“I don’t want the guys to stray in the decisions we’re making. We have veterans who go to play and young people who we try to integrate into the training. It’s not because of their game. So I wanted her to keep her trust,” he said.
Jake Evans, who has recovered from a virus, and Rafaël Harvey-Pinard, who was recalled from the Laval Rocket the day before, will also attend the meeting.
This is the Arvida striker’s first game at the Bell Center after three games on opposing rinks during the holiday season.
“I played with him during training camp. I know that he had a bad time in Laval, Evans said. He is a boy who works very hard and plays the right way, and he enjoys every moment. It’s nice to have him with us. “
- In addition, each of the two teams will want to take the opportunity to stop its losing streak at six.
