HEAD COACH GREG MOORE
On Toronto’s D-zone coverage:
At times, it was really good. Our D have been focusing on stalls, closing out quicker, really not giving the opponent time in the D-zone to make plays. There were definitely moments where we strong in that area. I would say that there are still items that we’ve got to clean up. Just in terms of our organization of where our details are and within our system. It’s game four. We’re going to keep teaching, keep getting better. Overall if we’re looking back at these four games, the chances we’re limiting the opponent to right now is pretty strong, we have something to build off of but we know where we’re at right now.
On whether they generated enough quality scoring chances:
Enough is a good question. I would say we generated some offensive chances. Berdin really turned it on yesterday and today. We probably could have done a better job at getting to the net and getting to his eyes. He saw a lot of the shots. We created a lot off the entries. Even in the offensive zone, we got some movement going, we got shots from the interior but when we do take the shots, there’s not enough of a presence there to a goalie who’s really feeling it to make it challenging on him.
