Assistant coach Todd Alexander was blunt in his assessment of his team and knows things have to change going forward.
“I think it would be a lot easier to stand here and talk about what went right tonight, versus what went wrong tonight. I don’t think there will be many things that we’ll be pulling out of this game that will be positive at all,” he admits. “There’s definitely a lesson to be learned here tonight for sure, but for the most part it’s one of those games that you crumble it up and huck it away and come back to practice on Tuesday and get back to work and get back to what’s been making us successful so far this season.”
Alexander says the team will focus on finishing their plays in practice this week, something that was absent in last night’s game along with improving their attitude for next Saturday’s game in Sexsmith.
“Realistically it just comes down to execution. We didn’t execute an of our plays and our effort and attitude was at an all time low,” he explains. “You can’t really control those two things, it’s up to the boys in the room to come out with effort and attitude and us to supply them with the game plan. When you don’t have those two ingredients in the main part of your mix you have games like this.”
The Huskies will look to get things turned around on the road on Saturday as they take on the Sexsmith Vipers. The game will be carried live on Moose FM with the pregame show starting at 6:45, and the opening faceoff at 7 p.m. from the Sexsmith Arena.
