I agree that quick puck/player movement is exactly what has the PP working so well. It's just that you cant give just one guy any credit/blame for that.

On Zidlicky's goal for example: Yes Zid does a great job of sliding down low to get a shot off but it doesnt work if Miettinen doesnt go from the half wall to the front of the net or if Cullen doesnt bring the puck from the right point to the center of the ice.

I guess you could give just one guy most of the credit, but that guy would be Dave Bahr and im not sure Wild fans are ready to give any of the coaches credit for anything.
