More from 106.7 the Fan

Brooks Laich joined “The Sports Junkies” on 106.7 The Fan before their matchup against the rival Penguins and explained that it’s better to be consitent and players shouldn’t dwell on their losses to the Kings and the Sharks.

Laich said if you think about your loss too much it could do more harm than good.

“You want to learn from stuff but sometimes you have to throw it out the window and say that’s done and move on,” Laich said. “If you worry about having a bad last game then it affects you tonight,” he added.

He also goes on to mention that the team hasn’t quite hit its stride and that when the Caps do, Laich said it’s having their game perfected in time for the playoffs and knowing “exactly how to play to win.”

Still, the team tries to limit the drop-off in quality of play from one game to the next but trying to fix it.

“We don’t want to be exceptional one night then poor the next night,” he said. “We always want to be at least good and there’s the nights where you are great that come along every now and then. We strive for that consistency but it’s a hard thing to do,” Laich added.

Listen to the full Brooks Laich interview recapping the teams west coast road trip and previewing the Pens matchup.
