TALKING POINTS: Hitchcock on 5-on-5, roster moves, injury news, and more

Read the full transcript of Oilers Head Coach Ken Hitchcock's comments from Monday morning's media availability.

by Staff / EdmontonOilers.com

Q: After a tough weekend, did this team meeting maybe have a different tone or some different information?

A: Not so much that. I said last night we're not good enough 5-on-5. When we do, we were very effective. You look at the way we played last 30 minutes against Buffalo 5-on-5, you look at the way we played in Vancouver 5-on-5, and it's exactly what the formula is. As soon as we get away from that we feed the other team's strengths. We had things going well in Calgary and then fed their transition game, and they're quick. This team last night was very quick, they put a lot of pucks on net, and we fed their transition game.

Today our whole focus was looking at ourselves 5-on-5 - what's good, what's not good, and what needs to be cleaned up. We're built a certain way, and when we're allowed to play that way we're very effective. When we focus on playing that way we can really do damage, but when we got into the game and allowed Carolina to do what they did yesterday, it's a huge disadvantage for us and we spend the entire first period on our heels. We've had, for me since January 1, too many games like that. We've spent a lot of time on our heels because we've fed their transition game. When you get stuck on the quarter-ice game where you're basically chipping it out and changing or getting stuck on the ice, it's a bad formula. That's exactly what's happened on a regular basis here the last three weeks.
