In the seventh week of our season-long series of interviews, Brian Cady was able to catch up with Albany Devils head coach Rick Kowalsky. Despite last night's overtime loss to Syracuse at the Times Union Center, the Devils extend their point streak at home to a league-best 10 games, going 7-0-2-1 during that span.

For the season, Albany is now 12-10-3-1 and are positioned in third place in the Northeast Division, sitting just two points behind the Adirondack Phantoms and five points behind the division-leading Connecticut Whale.

Coach Kowalsky discussed several topics with Brian this week, including:

  • What factors are contributing to the sudden meteoric rise in concussions throughout hockey
  • The team's struggles last weekend, playing two road games in less than 24 hours with a depleted roster
  • What changes might have to be made to improve the team's performance on the power play
