NTDP Player Journal

By Eric Nystrom

*Note this is from last weeks game*

After our first road trip in the USHL, I think the team has realized what we need to do in order to be successful. In a penalty filled weekend, our Power Play and Penalty Kill were both not up to par resulting in several missed power play chances and several PP Goals against. When we we’re playing even strength we were the dominant team on the ice in all three games. Once everyone starts producing and the team gets into a flow, we should be a very tough team to beat. We also showed some resiliency by striking a comeback against Cedar Rapids. After going down three goals in the first ten minutes of the game, we worked hard to come back and take the lead. Once again two PP goals tied the game at six and resulted in a shoot out loss for the NTDP. Hard work and training will pay off as we will only get better.
