The Chicago Blackhawks have hit a bit of a roadblock lately as they've lost four games in a row and six of their last seven.
It's seen the team lose their grip on a playoff spot as they're currently tied with the Columbus Blue Jackets for the fourth and final playoff spot in the Discover Central division but the Blue Jackets hold the tie breaker.
Chicago will host the second place Florida Panthers for two games starting tomorrow and head coach Jeremy Colliton spoke to the media on Monday.
Colliton mentioned what he felt the team needs to sharpen up and improve on to get things going again.
“We feel like we’re leaving a little bit on the table in transition,” Colliton said. “We can execute better and have more of a killer instinct in those situations.”
“[We need to] be clean, be quick, play fast and then take advantage of those three-on-two, four-on-three [rushes] that hopefully we’re going to create,” he said.
“It’s one thing to have a play to make; you’ve got to make it. When you do that, you’re able to expose teams before they’re able to get numbers back to defend. We want to be fast, but part of being fast is making those plays, so it’s something we’ve been focusing on.”
What do you think of Colliton's comments?
