Leafs forward Phil Kessel
spoke to the media on Monday ahead of their game with the Hurricanes. Here's what he had to say...
On turning things around after a tough stretch:
It was a tough one, we've got two before the break here so we've got to stay positive, come out hard and play our game. Hopefully we get a couple of bounces.
On the lack of goals:
I don't know what it is right now. I think we were the top scoring team in the League for a while there and now we must be the lowest scoring team in the League. I think that'll change. We've got good players here, we've just got to get it going.
On if he's changing any superstitions:
I'm not changing anything — just keep going and hopefully it'll come.
On the power play:
We've had our chances. I think last game Naz missed JVR got a piece of it and missed wide, that kind of thing. Obviously we've got to get a couple more shots on goal and outwork them. We've got a decent power play here and when it gets going it helps our team.
On facing Jay McClement:
We'll see him out there. He's one of the best penalty killers in the League so it'll be tough. He's a great guy and hopefully I can get one on him.
