BINGHAMTON (WBNG) - The month of November has not been kind to the Binghamton Devils. Five games, four losses, and the B-Devils have allowed at least four goals in each of the past four games. Wednesday night Binghamton heads to Rochester to take on the Americans. Before the team left for Rochester, 12 Sports Director Larry Burneal catch up with Binghamton Devils head coach Rick Kowalsky for the latest edition of B-Devils Sit-down.
The B-Devils have on a little bit of a rough patch losing four in a row. It seems to have coincided with a dip in the goalie play. What can the team do to help the goalies in net?
"I think you can't always put it on the goaltenders," said Binghamton Devils head coach Rick Kowalsky. "There's no question there's been some goals they'd like to have back, but they are young guys and we win and lose as a team. I think structurally we could be little bit better in our own end. I think the biggest thing is, whether its a bad goal, or a penalty, or a turnover, or we make a mistake, that we help each other out and then get back to our game and get back to our identity as a team as quickly as possible. I think the inconsistency in those things has been the problem during this stretch."
What's the message to the team before they take the ice in Rochester Wednesday night?
"I think its important, especially with a young group, that we continue just to focus on the process of how we want to do things," said Kowalsky. "Not worry about, 'hey, we need to win, we need to get out of this.' Obviously, we all feel that, but I think it's good to get right back at it right away. You don't want to sit on this. Obviously, nobody is happy with the way things have gone the last couple of games, but at the end of the day we're a young team. It is still pretty early on in the season and we do need to right the ship, but I think it's important that we continue to try to establish our game, and do it for sixty minutes, and that's the message going into tonight."
