After the match superstar player said in press conference,”We’re getting better each game”.”I haven’t played with them before this season so, I mean, the more we play, the better we’ll know each other — where we are (on the ice). Today, I think we had a lot of scoring chances on the rush. But I think we should be better at having more offensive zone time. I feel like sometimes it’s a lot of one-and-dones; we’re trying to score right away instead of having some of O-zone time.”
