A trip to Montreal Canadians west of the country can be a challenge. However, it will be spiced up with the arrival of Daryl Sutter in Calgary as the new head coach leads the Flames’ first game against the Hobbs on Thursday.
Sutter, who is in charge of the Alberta club for the second time, was appointed to his post on Friday after removing Geoff Ward. He could join the team on Monday.
Being a two-time Stanley Cup champion should trigger a 3-6-2 win in their last 11 tours.
“He wants to win,” Flames defenseman Noah Hanifin said after a 4-3 loss to the Ottawa Senators on Sunday night. Everywhere he went he won. We can not wait to see it in the locker room. He is going to demand a lot from us. I can’t wait to see what he brings and what he expects from us. I think this is good for our team. ”
The change of manager certainly brings good emotion and energy to the Flames who are struggling to achieve success despite good efforts.
“It hurts,” Captain Mark Giordano admitted. We know how important these elements are. Third [contre les Sénateurs], We have a good push, but need to find a way to get the colon. That is the main thing now. ”
This ability to close books is really needed as it has shown that all the teams in the Northern Division can beat any club any night.
“It’s a tough section,” Hanifin said. The third period consists of a lot of close games. We need to be comfortable making games and playing the right way from start to finish. ”
By then Subter will have three days to prepare his team for the Hobbs so they will not play any game. With this meeting the Canadian will face Canucks twice in Vancouver.
