Having trouble finding a box score... can anyone hook me up?
All forwards have to, when the situation presents itself, assume a 'defensive stance', have to go into a defensive crouch and start skating backwards. It would be an exaggeration to say Prevost didn't have a 'reverse gear', but it is very accurate to say she didn't like to use it. Instead, at the moment when it would have been time to 'put it in reverse', instead she would pounce forward to try to poke the puck away from the unsuspecting forward of the other team. Every game during warm-ups, just before leaving the ice, she would practice this quick chop-step acceleration, like a speed skater might use. She'd pounce, she'd poke the puck away, she'd go into her chop-step acceleration, and she was gone.
Middle of the first period, during a PK, tie game (?), she did it to some poor BC forward, and scored a shortie.
From time to time, Sarah Nurse reminds me of Prevost.
