Day 6 of Training Camp and Team Scrimmage Photos and Videos!
Here’s the weekend post with photos and media from training camp and the intra-squad scrimmage on Saturday! Sunday’s Phase 3 day of training camp included the usual drills and line changes and pairings. There was a focus by the coaching staff. to prepare for any scenario that could arise during the Return to Play period. “We were kind of prepared for a little bit of everything,” Recchi said. “We had a plan for whether we were going to go two separate sessions or just with our 14 forwards and eight defensemen, so it really didn’t change a whole lot. We were prepared for any situation, which was good. So, it really didn’t throw us for a loop too much at all.”” Source: Inside Scoop: Phase 3 Training Camp (Day 6)
– The Penguins still did some special teams work, starting with a top unit of Kris Letang, Justin Schultz, Evgeni Malkin, Jake Guentzel and Jared McCann. After a few reps, Jason Zucker replaced Schultz, and Recchi said his hockey sense is what makes him a solid option on the power play. Source: Inside Scoop: Phase 3 Training Camp (Day 6)
– Malkin and Crosby opened up the scoring for Team Black, who ended up with a 7-0 win. Letang, Schultz, Lafferty and of course Guentzel also got on the board.https://www.nhl.com/penguins/news/inside-scoop-first-training-camp-scrimmage/c-317506070
