Offensive Brown-out

It’s tough to know exactly what to make of Dustin Brown these days. He hasn’t scored a goal in 11 games (bad), but he leads the team in shots on goal (good). He is one of only seven players in the league to reach the 100-shot plateau this season  (good), but he has scored the fewest goals, six, out of those players (bad).

Asked if he was concerned about Brown, Terry Muray said no, and said Brown should stick with what he has been doing…

MURRAY: “I’m not concerned about it, because of the fact that he is putting a lot of pucks to the net. He is getting some really good scoring chances. I think there’s a couple of games here where he’s had some outstanding chances. He’s trying to be a little too fine with it.

“I would say, `Just keep hitting the net. Keep hitting the goaltender. Close your eyes and throw it right to the net right away, and good things are going to happen.’ I like what he’s doing. I like his mentality. He’s playing hard, he’s at the net. I think you go through a little bit of a drought sometimes, whenever you’re a player, and I’m looking for a big breakout real soon.”
