Tailing the Komets

Komets working to find consistency for home fans

Congrats to the Komets on a great start to the season.  So far they have been a much more exciting team to watch. 

My concern is with special teams.  We are in the bottom half in PP% and last in the league in PK%.  Over the length of a season and especially in the playoffs, this will be a huge disadvantage.  We have scored more goals than most teams which points to the fact that we have the talent.

The two biggest observations that I see are:

  ** Our opponents pressure out PP and we always seem to have difficulty just getting it set up on their zone

  **  We sit back very passively on the PK and allow our opponents to set up with ease and let them work the puck until they find an opening

This seems like a pretty glaring difference in approach and something that we should be able to fix.

Blake, any thoughts from the coach on this?
