Teddy Purcell agrees with Tampa Bay coach Guy Boucher that he needs to be a little more selfish with the puck and start shooting more.

"I consider myself a goal scorer, but I've always been a pass-first guy," said Purcell, who hasn't scored a goal in 11 consecutive games. "It's a bad habit I've got to break." He has taken just 43 shots in 25 matches this season. Purcell has only four goals, but sits third on the team in scoring with 21 points. He will look to put an end to his goal drought Tuesday night against Florida.
