the coaches oversee every line change
there have been multiple time that we have had 7-8 players on the ice...
ur guy comes to the bench and u go over the boards- not that hard
this is something the coach is responsilble for
The problem is the players on the bench need to communicate better with the players they are replacing. What happened is say a LW comes off the bench, but the LW he's replacing suddenly veers away or something happens forcing one of them to touch the puck.
It's some players not moving fast enough and others not communicating.
Has nothing to do with the coaches. The coaches are concerned about how the people on the ice are playing and what is happening on the ice.
They can't be concerned with their players not talking and not executing basic hockey fundamentals.
Some of the bench minors were flukes too. The Rangers kept trapping the Pens during slow changes. Just means that the Pens need to hustle more on line changes.
