WAXERS PLAYOFF PREVIEW
ROUND ONE: MISSION NORTH YORK
We, as a staff, realize that this series against North York is going t be a tough one. We are certainly looking forward to the test we are about to face.
In the playoffs, you always look to finish off an opponent as quickly as possible but to think this series will be done in a sweep would be foolish and most likely inaccurate. I think we can be successful however if we execute our game plan and pay attention to 3 specific keys to success.
Our success lately has been tied to the fact that we have kept the puck in our possession for the majority of the game. Passing is something we work hard on in practice and it seems to have paid off.
BUT WITH DISCIPLINE
We have worked hard to convince our guys that we want them to play physical between the whistles and not after the whistle. I believe our guys have learned to be more disciplined and are now more to their bodies instead of their sticks.
CAPITALIZE ON OUR
We have been doing a much better job of that recently but without a pure offensive game breaker, we can't afford to let those opportunities pass us by.
Although it seems simple, attaining those 3 keys are not an easy task. The players know what is expected and what they potentially can achieve.
It's an exciting time and the Markham Waxers are hoping to cause some excitement.
