A lot of the issue with the power play, going on the idea of shooting lanes, and their unavailability to the rangers is that they keep the puck movement to the perimeter. there are constantly passes parallel to the blue line up top, and the occasional pass down low. in most scenarios that pass down low is followed up by another up top, and here we go again. The lack of down-low passing, and passing across allows the defense to remain passive and stationary in a box (as washington did a lot lastnight) and just play the lanes. The Rangers need to put more guys in the middle, and create space to make passes from side-to-side, which would force defenders to move, and would open up lanes all over the place.
