Yeah, we definitely did play a 2-1-2 forecheck at times last night and it was disrupting Chicago's breakout a lot in the first period especially because they weren't expecting it. Now, had we capitalized off some of those turnovers it created...then I think we all would have been happy...

Personally, I was elated to see us make the change to a more aggressive system after all my posting in the 20 or so hours between the Dallas game and last night. Kudos to the team too for doing it without the benefit of any practice time either, they skipped the morning skate for extended meetings...
