HEATING UP: #11 Matthew Phillips
Matthew Phillips is on fire. He notched his 100th career goal (and 101st) against the Silver Knights on Wednesday and is currently riding a five-game scoring streak during which, he’s picked up nine points (6g,3a).
“I think I try to get better every season and this year I’ve really focused on being a consistent offensive producer,” Phillips explained.
“For me, personally, I think it’s just always finding time and space, putting myself in spots on the ice that I can have maybe an extra second or two with the puck. I work on my shot a lot in the summer and I think consistency is big for me too.”
