Damien Brunner C NJ Dec 29 '78
Damien Brunner is trying to avoid putting too much pressure on himself as he seeks to end a 10-game goal scoring slump.
"You're obviously not happy when you're not scoring," said Brunner. "But on the other side, you can't put yourself under too much pressure. The more you want it (goals), you try to push it and it won't work. Just make the easy plays and you're finally going to get a bounce. I'm hoping to have a positive feeling soon and get going again." Brunner still has 10 goals and 20 points in 29 games this season as a 27-year-old rookie. He's scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent this summer and it'll be interesting to see what kind of contract he gets.
