Berns Tarzan Boy and the jam ends of Zug

He had a Grin on the face, arms stretched in the height, and looked like Tarzan, the king of the jungle. A few seconds Tristan Scherwey stood there, glanced to the side, watching the 17'000 Fans enjoyed his goal and earned his SCB in a 3:1 lead. The only thing missing was that he drummed with his fists on the chest and a primal scream ausstiess.

Scherwey has led to the Berner back to their roots, to stressed your body game, and now they have the Momentum in this final series. All of a sudden he seem to stop his SCB. Can align the EVZ is there something else?

The majority of sport psychologists are likely to agree that a Team of his comfort zone from time to time to visit. But it must not dwell in it. Because too much comfort, or shall we say convenience, may be individuals, organizations, destroy, and even civilizations. I have criticised the SCB to be too easily satisfied. He is content when he has played out a projection, in order to manage him. Often that was not enough, sometimes. Against Servette and Biel, the Bernese playful, always guides. But now you are suddenly transformed.

Almquists Check as a turning point

I think it started in the third section, in game 1 against the train with the brutal Check of SCB-defenseman Adam Almquist against Reto Suri. The Bernese were rolled over in the neutral Zone time and Time again, the back was supported, as usual, and tried to manage the game. This allowed the Zugern, your pace of play. But this attack Almquists changed the nature of this series. Don't get me wrong: I'm trying in any way to justify this Check. He was wrong and belonged to punished strictly. But since then, the ECC is no longer the Same.

The Bernese seem to have noticed that they get the Zugern with a hard body game effect. So Scherwey promoted ranks of the Zuger Santeri Alatalo with a surprise Check in the neutral Zone and almost into the spectators. Such actions allow an opponent to think and much to think about, is rarely good in the ice hockey . I would not go so far as to claim that the Zug had become anxious. But it looks a bit afterwards. In any case, do not hesitate, yourself Checks to hand out. You push around the Bernese. But really, you don't take the fight.

Zug team meeting needed

What can be done to the train so, to find once again in these Final? First, you should convene a team meeting, just the players, not the coaches. And as you should affirm that you are willing to pay the price that the successful Teams in the Playoff have to pay. Starting from the next Puckeinwurf. Then you should record it again with Scherwey, making sure that the Smile passes.

In game 3, he was able to carry the Puck in the offensive zone, walk, twist and turn as he wanted, without him someone would have bothered. If the Zug-based soft before Scherwey back, he will hurt you. He tried to love his enemies with surprising Checks from your game to dissuade. Zuger should give him his own medicine. Him to the second attack.

the only thing missing was that Scherwey drummed on the chest
, a primal scream ausstiess.

The Bernese strikers are fast and agile, and Zuger have great difficulty to separate them in their defensive zone the Puck. You have two options: Either you provide an excess of the situation around the Puckführenden, we call this Overload. Or the defenders hold their positions, strict, and close the gap, until the attacker must turn. Train defensive players are not as mobile, and in your Eagerness, you let the world always get caught.


last but not least: The ECC must again play ice hockey, is not allowed to take place in the neutral Zone. I've seen the Zug this season often, and never have they played so hesitant as the last. You need to re-attack, without thinking. Currently, they are always a half-step late and be so stupid penalties, because they are on the run, rather than dictating the game. You simply need to play again, and again have Fun. You of the courage is lost. In doing so, you would have to do only what they have done all season.

I've seen the Zug this season
often, and never have they played so hesitant.

One of my most valuable lessons as a Coach, I received in 1984, in Zurich's Hallenstadion. My Bieler's Team was the defending champion, but we had great effort, played particularly well and lost 1:4 against the ZSC. I exerted pressure on the players demanded more of them, but I never got around to it. In the second Intermission, Dan Poulin came to me in the coach's office and said: "Kent, I just wanted to tell you: It's not working!" From these few words, I learned a lot, and again, I reminded myself. Sometimes the Coach needs to realize that it works in its own way, and change.

I think that's exactly what Kari Jalonen. He has learned a lot about the Bernese Team and also adjusted. He has a team that can exert on the whole of the ice pressure and the like to do. Jalonen makes the happen. This is no longer the same Team that we saw in the first two rounds. The Bernese have found your comfort zone, you have broken away from the convenience. It may sound paradoxical, but it works well. In the last two Games has me the SCB impressed. And also the Zuger seem to be amazed. If you don't stop immediately, over the Final soon.
