Sometimes being pinned in your own zone and not having strong puckflow from your defence can really hamper your ability to score 5 on 5.
I think a major issue with puck movement from the blueline is the lack of puck support. This is apparent in all three zones. All five skaters are too far spread apart. Three short passes can get you further than one long bomb from the defensive zone to the neutral zone.
