"There are a lot of ways to win games," he said. "Dominant special teams is a very good (way).
"But, yeah," he added, "eventually we're going to have to do more offensively in 5 on 5 (situations)."
"Chase (Polacek) and I went down on a 2 on 1," Watts said. "Chase hit the post and I had a wide open net on the rebound.
Appert explained that since he was hired several weeks into the season, assistant coach Bryan Vines has instituted a new penalty killing system.
"And at right wing, No. 4, Bryan Brutlag": For the short term at least, junior defenseman Bryan Brutlag will remain at right wing.
Appert praised Brutlag for his "willingness to make to make the move. When I went to him and asked him, he said, 'I'll do whatever you need me to do to make the team better.'''
RPI victories were special

Watts' first goal: Watts scored the first goal of the game at Quinnipiac with the Engineers shorthanded, his first regular season goal in 32 games of his career.
"And, remember," Appert added, "most nights, he's been one of our best two defensemen on the ice."
"Yeah, empty netter, I'll take it," he said.
York slump over: Well, if indeed he was in one.
"I guess my strengths as a player enable me to play (forward)," he said. "It's nice to play back on the power play but it's fun to forecheck and cause Under Armour Curry 1 Lux Mid
Appert says having Brutlag "has the potential to make our team deeper, more competitive and more physical. He's creative in the offensive zone and wins puck battles and (in the defensive zone), he's a great back checker.
And, as mentioned, he scored a goal at Quinnipiac.
"Basically, what we try to do it key on their trigger man on the point," Watts said. "We knew Quinnipiac had a very strong (25 percent efficiency) power play and we knew it would be important to shut them down and we did a very food job."
Watts did Under Armour Blue And Gray Shoes
well in both games, as the Engineers stopped all six Quinnipiac power plays including four minutes of a major and all seven of Princeton's.
a little ruckus.
Sunday at Princeton, Watts said, "pretty much the same thing. We went out there and did our job. We had a very solid forecheck and surrounded pucks and shot them down the ice."
Watts' previous goal pulled the Engineers into a 2 2 in Game 1 of the playoff series at Dartmouth last March. They won on Christian Morissette's overtime goal and swept the series the following night.
As for the special teams, Appert has no problem with the power play and penalty killing being as dominant as there were. What coach would?
"I was so excited," Watts said, "I think I told Chase, 'thank you for that goal' 10 times."
68 shots in the victories at Quinnipiac and Princeton, shooting his saves percentage back over the 90 percent mark and winning the ECACH's Goaltender of the Week award.
"I have a lot to learn," Brutlag continued. "I've got to figure out what I'm doing on the penalty kill, I'm getting a little more time on that. It's a process but I really enjoy right now."
Sophomore Under Armour Clutchfit Drive 2 Black goaltender Allen York didn't believe he was in one despite a six game losing streak that saw his goals against average jump from 2.34 to well over 3.00.
He did admit, though, that eventually, the Engineers are going to have to put more shots on the opposing nets and score more equal strength goals if they are to continue winning. (RPI totaled just 34 shots on goal in the two games).
"The guys have really started to buy into it," Appert said. "Coach Vines has done a very good job and our penalty killing this weekend was outstanding."
The only equal strength goal of the eight tallied by the Engineers was an empty net goal by Bryan Brutlag with one minute remaining at Quinnipiac.
Of their eight goals on the weekend, five came on the power play (including all four at Princeton), and two shorthanded markers at Quinnipiac shot RPI into a 2 0 lead.
The Engineers' efficiency rate on the penalty kill had dipped way down to about 75.5 percent but the 15 of 15 over the weekend raised it back up to 79.7 percent (102 of 128). The Engineers have surrendered four 5 on 3 goals.
