The Montreal Canadiens returned to training Sunday morning at Broussard, on the eve of Game 4 of the Stanley Cup Final, and coach Dominique Ducharme made some changes to his training, including numerical advantage units.
Thus, defender Eric Gustafson was withdrawn from the first wave to be replaced by Jeff Petrie. In the second, it was Jesperi Kotkaniemi who gave way to Joel Jeremiah.
The team set aside at least half an hour for this aspect of their game during the session, and Josh Anderson believes that focusing on that aspect of the game could make a huge impact in Monday’s game.
“You can always work on things to improve yourself and obviously the special teams are very important in this series, especially in the final,” he said in a video conference. You want to be able to gain momentum and special teams are essential for that.”
“I think it was important to work on that and be comfortable with the guys on the ice. When we’re going to jump on the ice in the next game [en avantage numérique]We want to know where others run on the ice [le plan] He scores a big goal.”
to stay positive
CH is currently 3-0 behind against the Tampa Bay Lightning in this series, which may end as early as Monday. But be sure to give up.
“You have to have a positive attitude and have fun. That’s the message,” Jeff Petrie said. “We will do everything we can to get back to Tampa,” Anderson added.
The fourth duel in the series will be shown on TVA Sports.
Press Briefing by Josh Anderson and Jeff Petrie –
“I’ve been saying this for a while, even before the playoffs. At the end of the season, we had a lot of adversity and I said we had a good group. And you get stronger in the face of adversity and these situations. They show it every day. Sometimes you lose a game, things don’t go the way you want them to, But it is certainly not for lack of effort and will. Our men are dedicated to the group. They showed it yesterday and today, and they will show it on the ice tomorrow.”
“We will see tomorrow. You have seen our work in Afif. My number, you will see the rest tomorrow.”
The things we’ve improved, we know. We have already done. We have to give some credit to Tampa for making our lives that much more complicated. But we know what adjustments we have to make and we see the result when we do it well.”
“Adjustment is not great. We know what to do. It is implementation. Do it under pressure.”
“The guys stay on the ice. It’s not like playing but I’m not worried that we can put any of our players on the ice and they’d be ready to play.”
