It may be a cliche, but in the playoffs, every little detail matters on and off the ice to ensure players perform at their peak, and nutrition is a huge part of the program when the games are over.
Game 1 of the Eastern Finals between the Florida Panthers and Carolina Hurricanes is a good example of this, as that game ended in the fourth period of overtime. The players of both teams had to draw on their reserves in order to maintain a certain level of energy.
Players are looking for ways to stay hydrated, fed and focused during play-off matches.
Florida Panthers center Eric Staal stuffed himself with wedges of apples and oranges between periods.
However, he told NHL.com that ” [les pommes et des oranges] vomited.”
Defender Brandon Montour tasted too much caffeine and salt.
For the Hurricanes, Stefan Noesen’s secret to building up energy reserves was to eat plenty of chicken and rice, plus plenty of water, during the pre-game meal. His teammate, Brady Skegee, ate four bananas during the evening.
Support team work
National Hockey League (NHL) teams’ support staff, which includes, among others, sports therapists, physical trainers, nutritionists, and equipment attendants, is absolutely essential, especially during playoff games.
He must be attentive to the needs of the players in order for them to perform at their best.
The Hurricanes and Panthers coaching staffs have obviously been very busy during this first meeting of the Eastern Final.
“I’m sure the support staff on both teams did a great job doing everything they could, running in all directions to get everything they could. It’s just about recharging and recharging,” said Eric Staal, whose comments were posted to NHL.com. Bundle up and get excited for another time.”
The Hurricanes brought in Bill Berniston as well as a dietitian and a chef during breaks between periods and during overtime in Game 1. This army of personnel kept watch so that no player was lacking for anything and that they were in exceptional physical shape.
