I could just be nitpicking, though.
Most PPs play the defensemen / point men on their off wing side because it provides better shooting angles/lanes, opens up the one-timer and offers less of a chance that if you miss short side, the puck rings and goes out of the zone on the opposite side before your partner can hold it in. They will go with Bieksa and either Hamhuis or Ballard on the 2nd unit for the same reason - both will play their off side.
