Watchman Jake Allen He did not train with the rest of the group.
He trained on the high school rink, with goalkeeping coach Eric Raymond.
After training, coach Dominique Ducharme indicated that defender Sami Nico could make his Canadian debut on Saturday night against the Detroit Red Wings at Bell Center.
In the case of an attack, the above lines should be.
If Nico gets into the fray, it will be his first NHL game since March 1, when he was still the Winnipeg Jets moment.
“If I had the chance to play, I would be really excited to play in front of the fans,” said the 25-year-old Finn, who trained alongside Brett Kulak on Friday. “I just want to play my style of play and be confident and be good.”
Ducharme: “We will take care of the work to be done”
To say things are not going well for Canadians would be an understatement.
But Ducharme thinks the tide should turn soon.
Although the final result of Thursday’s game against Carolina was disappointing, he saw effort.
“I see signs. I see good things coming. We will get out of this. It will make us stronger and that’s it. Anyone can consider us dead and buried, we don’t mind. Obstinate. It doesn’t bother us. We will take care of the work to be done and we will finish where we deserve to finish.” Every night, we have 20 players in training, so we have to find a way, as a group, and maybe some of the players learn or internalize that we have to do more on certain levels, like driving or playing, but we’re going to finish that and we’ll do it the right way.”
Allen seemed to have a similar opinion.
“We have to start feeling confident that our way of playing and working is going to change the rules of the game. As long as you stop trusting yourself, the boat can sink,” Allen said. “We have to find that inner confidence in our group and start smiling again and simply showing up to play. Easier said than done. I understand that, but you have to find the passion and the sense of urgency in our style of play.”
The confrontation against Detroit will end four games at home.
The Canadians will then travel to Seattle on Sunday to begin a journey where they will cross swords with the Kraken (October 26), San Jose Sharks (October 28), Los Angeles Kings (October 30) and the Ducks. Anaheim (October 31).
