MIKE\'S MEMO: Greetings from St. Louis

by Mike Milbury

One win doesn't make a season.  However, the win in Detroit was a promising start to the road trip.  Beating a very competitive team in their building at the start of three on the road gave a very positive mood to this morning's practice. But, wait....there is more to the story.

What makes the rest of the trip so important is that we have to establish a belief in ourselves.  We have lost so many third period points that it was inevitable that self-doubt had to creep into our psyches.  A win such as the Detroit win can help erase that doubt but only if it is followed by another good outing.  I am not even talking about a win here although that would help.  I am talking about a 60-minute, even-keeled, maximum effort with minimal mistakes.

We need to give ourselves a chance to win every game and we can.  Stay out of the box...we are getting better.  Limit turnovers to the offensive zone.  Concentrate a little better on the draws.  A disciplined, motivated performance should be expected every night, but it is a lot easier when you are feeling good about yourself.

St Louis has been sitting here since last Thursday waiting for us.  Keith Tkachuk is back in the lineup and quality players like Doug Weight and Scott Young will not make it an easy task despite their record.  That's OK.  We should approach this game with confidence and discipline.  The result will take care of itself.  I am looking forward to it.
