Today, Marty talks about what goes on the night before a new series begins.
It really depends on how your body is feeling. You might need some extra maintenance with the trainers or just some exercises or stretching routines you might do before bed time. But, you're going to get in there and lay down and put your head on the pillow, and that puck drop, that crowd, especially having played so many games here at Rogers Arena, you can just envision that crowd. You can anticipate that National Anthem and how electric that crowd is going to be with U2 strumming as you're skating around the ice.
Those thoughts come into your head when you lay down to go to bed, but you know you're going to be better off the more you think about it and prepare for it. So, the more it comes down to it the more you can turn the brain off. The night time and the morning after the skate is used to visualize and then you can just shut it off and get down to what you do best, and that's reacting and watching, figuring out what is going on on the ice so you can just play your game.
