Winnipeg Jets coach Claude Noel pre-game scrum
The Jets are hot having won four games in a row and they take on a Hurricanes team that is reeling. How does coach Noel feel about this? He met with the media following practice to discuss.
Coach Noel Topics: Size of the Hurricanes. His philosophy using top line vs. top line. Staying focused on his team. Does he need to worry about his team being ready to go? Getting up for every single game. Was it a good thing (i.e. wakeup call to his team) that Tampa came back from a 3-1 deficit? What has he liked about Pavelec during this stretch? (“He makes the save that needs to be made at the right time and that to me is a hallmark statement for a goalie”). What has enabled the teams to win at home? Does he have to keep the linup the same during a win streak? When Antropov returns is he back then?
