Jack Capuano has diagnosed what is behind Blake Comeau’s recent steak of scoring five goals in six games.

"He’s got to move his feet,’’ the coach said. "When Blake’s moving his feet and he’s shooting the puck - we had this talk after the Washington game - he was getting chances but wasn’t shooting the puck quick enough. He is shooting the puck right now and when you shoot the puck good things happen whether he scores the goals or gives his linemates an opportunity for second and third opportunities at crashing the net.

"As long he continues to drive his feet, move his legs and get pucks to the net, good things are going to happen for him.’’
