Canada coach Claude Julian spoke to the media hours before the team’s game against the Oilers in Edmonton.
Watch the press briefing in the main video.
Here are some quotes from a trainer’s short conversation with journalists:
About Oilers Captain Connor McDavid: “All teams are trying to find a way to slow him down, but it’s not easy (…) we shouldn’t give him the opportunity to pick up too fast. And when it has its speed, you have to keep it outside instead of letting it in, it gets less dangerous.” .
What he wants to improve compared to Wednesday’s game: “The little details. We talked about that yesterday, we watched a little video. At this point, it’s the little details that make a difference. We made adjustments here and there, but nothing important. It was our first game and we shouldn’t get carried away. All kinds of business. “
The Canadians did light training in which a few players participated in the morning. The organization also noted that the Jake Evans Center has been recalled from the club’s reserve squad (“Taxi Squad”), a management measure that has been repeated several times this season.
Evans should normally be available for tonight’s match, which will be shown on TVA Sports from 6pm. This will be the second game of the season for the Montreal team.
Yesterday in training, Julian had nothing changed in his training compared to last Wednesday’s game, losing 5-4 to Maple Leaves in Toronto.
CH will face Oilers again on Monday night, before meeting up with Canucks in Vancouver two days later.
