“All (assistant) Coach (Mark) Tarmey emphasizes is, ‘Win the 1-on-1s, and you win the shift. You do that and you win the period, and if you do that you win the game’,” added Tom Koopman. “He tells us that all the time, and you could see that working tonight.
“Consistency is the biggest thing for our team: we want to come out strong and stay strong throughout the game. We’ve got the depth and the talent to do it; it’s just a matter of actually doing it.”
