“This is a day where I want him coming off the ice feeling like, ‘OK, I got better,’ ” Yeo said. “He doesn’t have the games right now to be feeling good about his game, so if he doesn’t have the practices, it’s pretty difficult.”

Encouraging words

In the previous two games, Jared Spurgeon committed turnovers that led to two backbreaking goals.

Yeo grabbed the normally reliable defenseman for a brief conversation near the start of Saturday’s morning skate.

“I haven’t seen him make those two plays ever in his career,” Yeo said. “But it happens to every player. So I just wanted to basically give him a tap on the shin pads to say, ‘Listen, forget about that.’ ”

Spurgeon wound up scoring the game-winner Saturday and was plus-3.
