On the powerplay they were playing to this position highlighted in green.
THAT IS SO EASY TO DEFEND AGAINST !!!!!!
1. You've made it completely easy for the opposing players to clog up ALL alleys. You don't even need a triangle. Heck one player positioned well knocks out all the possible moves.
2. Once that position gets the puck, where do they go?
a. back to the d? >results in a terrible shot opportunity through a lot of traffic, which we know our guys do not really do a whole lot.
b. SHOOT? Hell no. Only a handful of players are talented enough to pull that area off. We don't really have them.
3. We put two guys infront of the net, but even on the 5-3 it's not like they were big bodies blocking the goalie.(Man, that first goal by ATL made me kinda miss Antro for that reason)
Having that other body down low on the far side of the net is completely useless. That player is essentially there for getting garbage, but we don't put in front. He could be there to catch dumps behind the net, but again, we don't really do that when we're "cycling".
Rant over. Glad we got those points.
Boyle, what a play.
