Exactly what I was thinking. The great teams play a tight defensive game and then absolutely pounce on the offensive opportunities that creates. It's what the Devils did, it's what Richards does so well on the PK, we could be seeing that at ES as well with the right system. This team, with very few changes, is already custom built for this. They just need to be shown that it works.
