You can effectively take time off the clock when you have posession of the puck and at least try to extend that lead.
When you sit back, when you stop playing, when you concede pressure to the other team, you are doomed.
In the new NHL that is exactly right. In the old NHL not so much or in soccer not so much. Without the clutching and holding etc. you are most certainly doomed.
