Rick Bowness Details Stars Plan to Frustrate Conor McDavid, Leon Draisaitl & Stars Turning Corner
Dallas Stars’ head coach Rick Bowness talked about his team’s victory over the Edmonton Oilers. The Stars have won 4 out of their last 5 games. Coach Bowness shared his thoughts on the win.
Things are looking up for the Stars after a poor start to the season. Rick Bowness expected this turnaround. As long as they create chances they are giving themselves a chance. The coach knows the puck simply wasn’t going in to start the season.
As far as the win over the Oilers, he thought they played a disciplined game. He said his team was prepared to play 60 minutes and that they, “did what we had to do.” They prepare to play with the same intensity for a full game. Bowness was especially pleased with his team’s production on the power play.
Their opposition supplied one of the game’s bright stars in Connor McDavid. Bowness said the key to containing a player of that caliber is having a group of 5 work together to defend him. His team came through on that strategy. The Stars are back to their winning ways, and they look to continue building momentum.
