Sens on Special Teams: Power Play: 1/4| Penalty Kill: 3/3 Sound Bytes: Head Coach Troy Mann: We didn’t come out ready to go. They obviously came out with a purpose and were very physical and really dominated the first period in general, specifically the start. I thought the 5-on-3 kill might give us some momentum, but unfortunately, we just made too many critical errors within our structure, next thing you know, you’re trailing 3-0, and it’s just very difficult when you’re chasing a game to come back.
