The IceHogs are off to a slow start this season on the offensive end of the ice.
They managed only two goals total in their opening two games in Cleveland last weekend. They were scoreless in ten power play chances.
The Hogs aren’t concerned. They know it’ll take a little time to develop some chemistry with so many new players on the team this season.
“You look at that, and you’ve just got to think, not to get too disappointed about it,” says center Mark McNeill. “It’s still early in the season. There doesn’t need to be any panic right now.”
“There’s a few things we can work on,” says center Tanner Kero. “I think we were creating the chances. It’s kind of just bearing down and capitalizing on them. Make the simple plays right now and just kind of get pucks on net. Both of our goals on the weekend I think were kind of just coming out of the corner off the rush just throwing them on net and see what happens.”
The IceHogs will get several chances to put the puck in the net this weekend. They’ll play a road game Friday at Grand Rapids. They’ll host Milwaukee Saturday night and Cleveland Sunday afternoon.
