As the clock hit at 1 o'clock in the overtime, the head coach of the Golden Knights Gerard Gallant took some tough decisions. Under the rules of the NHL, when the game comes into fire, the owners get the choice of shooting the first or second.
Someone said that we are 63% when we go first when Fleury is on the net. Yes, I like 63 better than other chances. The next game I can change. But verily, for my career as a trainer, I switch it. It does not matter to me. Some guys want to go first all the time, I think most teams do it, but I switch it, I really do it. Gallant
Gallant repeated that he did not think that it was really important, so he just got rid of the feelings until that night.
If you see there (the advantage of the first one). -Gallant
Golden knights were in four shootouts this season and 11 in the history of the franchise. They left the first four times and won only one of them. They went to the second seven and won the prize.
Four of them took place at home, where Galant was chosen. He chose the first in three out of four, winning only one, choosing the second time that he also lost.

(It should be assumed that about 63% of Gallant speak about kar & # 39; Fleury: But who has time to look for it? Not me.)
I do not know exactly when it was published, but according to the study, the transition of the first or second in a shootout was not statistically significant result at At the time of the study. 50.5% of the teams that came to the second win have won, hardly an advantage.
Last night Gallant went with Brandon Peary, William Carlson, Alex Tucham, Jonathan Marquesso, Shey Theodore and Oscar Lindberg. 19659007] I will allow him to explain the thoughts of this
We have a good idea before the game. But to be honest with you, when the guy looks really good in the game, you can change his mind, or if someone does not look too good in the game or confident, then you can change your decision, but you have a list of shooters. 19659007] (Saying with a smile) You go through different guys and different feelings, and sometimes it's a feeling. I'm sure people can look at the six that we took last night and say why this guy did not go or this guy did not go, I will not tell you why.
Maybe some guys do not want to go, maybe some guys do not feel comfortable coming from the penalties. (Shrug) So this is part. -Gallant
He also added that the results are important, and he is not afraid to include it.
Now, the next game, maybe, Cody Eckin will go, because Cody was good enough in breakthroughs this year. We will change it. Last night, there were several different guys like Lindberg, I like the way he plays lately and he has some really nice goals, so you give someone an opportunity. -Gallant
The last piece of the puzzle is when to tell each shooter that they are going. The galant loves the approach at the last minute.
I talk to me before they go. I immediately tell the first shooter, after which it depends who scored and who did not score. We do not list the game. It happens quite quickly. -Gallant
Shootings are mostly made for guessing and do not matter when a team loses in a shootout, will be enough for criticism. This was the case last night, it will be the next time the Golden Knights roll over in skills competitions that the NHL finds necessary due to the phobia of North American affiliations. seven shooters in a row. Therefore, we will do our best.
I can not argue with this.
Well, I think you can … and you will probably be.
