Winnipeg Jets coach Claude Noel pre-game scrum
Following a terrible loss to a division rival last night, coach Noel met with the media to talk about what his team can do better tonight in the re-match against the Capitals.
Coach Noel – Haven’t watched tape yet. Given different periods to different coaches. Stuart is game-time decision. Potential lineup changes. Pavelec playing tonight. If on merit, could pull entire team out. Over analyzing games. Room has to sort out what they want to do. No X and O tactical adjustments (“If you can find the coaching manual that has the chapter on this problem, show me!”). The plan is to play better/harder/etc. 6 pm start time is fine. He has been in this situation before but because he is older better able to handle it. Did not address team this morning.
