"For me, I just watch the puck and play it and focus what I do rather than what they do." - Brossoit
PORTLAND, ORE. - Laurent Brossoit doesn’t see numbers. To the Edmonton Oil Kings goaltender all the Portland Winterhawks look the same, even though it’s their top line that has done the majority of the damage this season. “For me, I don’t really necessarily look out to see who’s on the ice,” Brossoit said prior to Game 5 Friday. “I find a lot of goalies will kind of over-psych themselves if they see that (Ty) Rattie line out there. They’ll play it differently. For me, I just watch the puck and play it and focus what I do rather than what they do.” Rattie, Nicolas Petan and Brendan Leipsic went into Friday’s contest with 81 combined points so far in the playoffs. They collected 350 points during the regular season. Considering the Oil Kings had struggled to score so far in the series, Brossoit went into Friday’s contest knowing he may have to steal one in order to get the series back to Edmonton. “It’s in the back of your mind, but I have total confidence in our group,” Brossoit said. “I’ve seen them throughout the whole season score goals, and I know they’re capable of it. I’ve seen them score against these guys in Game 1. So I have total confidence in them and I’m just going to focus on my game and hopefully I’ll stop more pucks than the other guy.” Keeping cool.
