He is a great coach. There are several at this level. I think Minnesota high school is over-coached from a player's and fan's perspective, but I totally understand why it is. Playing defense first is effective. Count on your best player or players to make a play here and there and bank on the power play. In his postgame Eigner talked about the process of getting his team to understand some little things that add up to be very important and by the end of the season they were doing it. Nobody saw them beating Andover, but they did.Sparlimb wrote: ↑Sat Mar 07, 2020 11:08 pmAnd you see tonight what Lechner coaches. The forwards back checking and supporting the defense is really the way to win games. You don't blow everyone out that way, but you win against teams that have more talent. ... But I like teams when I see the forwards skating hard towards the defensive zone. And getting dirty to dive in front of passes and block shots. Lechner is a good coach.
Hats off to Lechner, his assistants, and the whole team. Awesome tonight. Threw a perfect game.
