After tonight’s game Assistant Coach Bowman Rutledge had this to say about his teams mindset and focus: “I think we had a good week at practice. The guys were going hard coming back from the break. It was positive to get everyone back together. It looks like out there we are trying to make moves ourselves. As soon as we hit the ice guys seem like their attitudes or egos are getting in the way. We need to realize that not every game will be fast and showy, sometimes it will be a hard hitting game that doesn’t require an individual effort but coming together as a team.”
The Braves next home game is Wednesday January 13th. Puck drop is 7:30
