Head Coach Chuck Kennedy was happy with how his team rebound after Saturdayï¿½s lost to the Seattle Totems.
ï¿½The boys were a different team tonight from last night in Seattle. As a team we wanted to focus on puck movement and attacking through the neutral zone with speed,ï¿½ Coach said. ï¿½Our passing was much more crisp and our defensemen were more aggressive with their gap control so we controlled the neutral zone tonight.
"Improving our specialty team play is on the top of my list, but they are starting to try some of the new things we introduced just last week so patience is the key. I was very proud of the three period effort tonight and we are looking forward to getting home and preparing for our home opener next weekend."
The Generals will host the Southern Oregon Spartans in their home opener on Friday October 1st at the Lane County Ice Cener. The game will broadcasted on EGHN with the pre-game at 7:15 and the puck drops at 7:35.
