"There's obvious stiffness and all the tension comes with it, but it's just my power — it's not there," said Hodgson. "The quick-twitch muscle needs to regrow and I'm trying to get so I can explode again. That's the most difficult part. I see an opening and I just can't get to it. Once I'm going I'm fine and I have the top-end speed. But the first two or three steps, there's no pop. The left leg has it, but with the right leg, there's no explosiveness yet."The clock is ticking and the speculation and pressure on Hodgson is growing. He scored no points and zero shots on goal against the Ducks.
