Off The Ice With Craig Adams: We Want To Finish Strong Going Into Break
PITTSBURGH (93-7 The Fan)- Pittsburgh Penguins Forward Craig Adams joined The Cook and Poni Show on The Fan Tuesday morning following the Pens 3-0 win over Buffalo.
“We played well. Not spectacular, but well,” Adams said.
Adams said the Pens were patient early but made mistakes later and Goalie Marc-Andre Fleury had to nail them out. He said overall they have to feel much better about how this one went compared to the poor play as of late.
Adams showed up on the score sheet with two assists.
“They weren’t the prettiest assists, but I will take them for sure,” Adams said.
Adams also addressed a recent comment from NHL officials that said they would consider not allowing NHL players to go to Sochi for the Olympics if “something significant happens.”
“It’s not a prefect scenario but it’s the Olympics,” Adams said. “You are not going to let anything deter you from a once-in-a-lifetime experience.”
Adams points out that is the general consensus of the players he has talked too. He also thinks that from talking to those involved the athletes will be taken care of but the concern is for those who are outside the Olympic village.
The Pens have five games remaining before they head into the three-week break for the Olympics and Adams says they need to finish strong before the break.
“We want to be playing at our best on a more consistent basis,” Adams added. “The Momentum we build good or bad over the last five games won’t carry over, but the identity we have built over the season is not going away over the break.”
