Ever since making his debut as assistant coach at the Montreal Canadians, Alexander Burrows seems to have delivered a real shock to the team’s power play.
Burrows moved to Montreal when General Manager Head Coach Claude Julian was fired and replaced by his assistant Dominique Ducharm. The latter then indicated that it was Burrows’ goal to restore numerical advantage.
The result is by far the most convincing. In six games, the Hobbs scored five times with at least one man in 11 chances, with a 45.5% success rate.
“I have a plan for two units,” Burrows said in a video conference Tuesday. Right now, one works, but I’m not afraid of another. If we can keep it straight and simple, this is how we will succeed. ”
Burrows now hopes the team can take more penalties away from their opponents to take advantage of this momentum.
“I think more punishment can come from the opponent. We need to put more puck in the offensive zone, put more pressure on them, which means teams get more tired and sticks out.”
Burrows was speaking to the media for the first time since his appointment, when he returned. Bergwin said he was shocked when he was called to tell him the news.
“Apparently, I was shocked when Mark called me. I was a bit shocked. I was delighted and amazed at Mark’s confidence. But at the same time, I am very happy that the Canadian has always been my team. ”
“I’m really ready. From day 1, I talked to Dom and we had the same focus on what we could do to improve the team.”
CH is currently on a tour of western Canada and will meet Canucks in Vancouver on Wednesday. Burrows’ former structure won 2-1 in a shootout on Monday.
