In the midst of a series of failures, Claude Julian, head coach of the Montreal Canadians, took the time to gather his players in the middle of the snow on Monday, after a day of workouts in Ottawa.
«[Je leur ai dit] We had to work to get it. It’s very easy, ”the 60-year-old driver said after his family’s session and the day of the 3-2 overtime loss against the senators. Watch the Julian Press briefing in the video above.
“Our attitude and our approach make a difference. We need it tomorrow,” Julian said, referring to Tuesday night’s meeting against the team from Federal Capital.
In the last two weeks, the Canadian has won only one of his five duels. The team does not seem to have dominated opponents in the opening moments of the season.
“We had a lot of success overseas at the beginning of the campaign and then things got harder. They’re tough right now,” Shia Weber said. We’re working hard to get out of it.
The Canadians captain strongly believes players should return to their mental state a few weeks ago.
“We need to regain our enthusiasm from the beginning,” he said. Right now, it’s hard. There are a lot of negatives during games and from the snow. We are in a bad place, but I believe we can go together. ”
Droin: More fear than harm
In addition, Jonathan Drouin trained with his teammates, leaving a confrontation with the senators the day before.
Julian confirmed on Tuesday evening that Quebec will be part of his training.
Keep in mind that during the second period of the game on Sunday night, defenseman Mike Reilly was hit by a drove on the ramp and never returned to play later.
Successfully approved 25-year concussion protocol.
“Everything is beautiful, it’s just a precaution,” Droin explained.
“I gave it a little shock to the head, but it was beautiful all day [lundi] And last night was all beautiful [dimanche] After the game. “
