After losing 2-1 at the hands of Tampa Bay Ligning, New York Island head coach Barry Trotz is juggling the idea of making changes to his list in preparation for the fourth season on Friday.
It came out of his press briefing as his club fell 2-1 in the semi-final series against the “Bolts”.
Watch the media briefings of the islanders the next day after losing their Game 3 above.
“We’re looking at it,” the 58-year-old driver said of the possible changes for the fourth match. We played a very strong game. However, we need to get into the opponent’s net with more regularity. Sometimes it’s an inch thing. We also need a good start to the game. ”
However, Trotz expressed some reservations.
“They don’t always work,” he said, “on the changes. I owe it to myself and my trio to get to know each other better. This group, it’s not used to a lot of changes.”
SU Lightning – Islanders –
In the first two rounds of the current playoffs, the “Islands” coach suggested that Anthony Beauviller return to the starting lineup.
Kubaker, who made three with Brock Nelson and Josh Bailey, scored 11 points (4-7) in 12 games before reaching the semi-finals. In all three games played by Lightning, Sorrell-Tracy native was eliminated from the scoresheet.
“I believe” Beau “can play on another level,” said Trotz.
“But I must give credit to the Tampa Bay players who have done a great job in neutralizing this unit. We need them. About Anthony, I found out he didn’t know the exit he wanted to know in this series. I know him, I know these three and I know they will fix the situation. “
On Saturday night, at the fourth meeting, we will see if Beauville and his three friends have received a message from their coach.
