The Thrashers enter Tuesday’s game at Pittsburgh with a power play that is struggling. The unit is just 2-for-29 over the past 10 games.
Thrashers coach Craig Ramsay said the key to returning the unit to its previous success is to keep it simple.
“The entries have to be good,” Ramsay said. ” More importantly, you have to be able to deal with the pressure that teams bring. It’s moving it quickly and not trying to be fancy and making the simple plays. When a power play struggles, the most important thing to do is keep is simple. Get it down low, throw it to the point and shoot it. If you can get those point shots to go through then suddenly good things start to happen. You can get tips, you can get rebounds.”
