Duck Season

By Gary Harding

Hopefully The “Wiz” can convince Elmer to shoot an Anaheim.

To paraphrase an old Hockey line, “YOU CAN’T SCORE A GOAL IF YOU DON’T SHOOT THE PUCK!”

Get pucks to the net – it is that simple. Don’t let the other team intimidate you. The Isles have talent, but they have to show it – get in the other team’s faces, and let them know that they mean business.

I think that this 3 game home set can maybe give the guys some much needed confidence. They have played well at home, and should have had better fates of late.

A smile needs to get on JT’s face. He loves the game, and he needs to remind himself of that.

Not sure on who should be in net tonight. That will be a crap shoot.

My player to watch: Travis Hamonic. The 20 year old has played well in his 8 games on the Isles. No goals to show, but he is ready to play, seems to have some good instincts and is not afraid to ‘dude’ it up when needed. I am predicting goal number 1 for him tonight!

Probably will not be there, but will be on Saturday when the ‘Yotes come to town. They lost 3-0 to the Devils last night – so they should be an angry team. Great!

Have a hockey day!
