you guys make this sound so difficult.
1. fire off the pass. a lot.
the NYR accept a pass and then look for what to do. firing off the pass forces d-men to rush into the lane and dive to shot block. It makes it easier to look like you're miving around a lot more, when the defense is forced to open up holes in their coverage. when you fire off the pass #1 they don't have a chance to get in your lane. #2 the goalie doesn't have a chance to adjust enough to control the rebound. #3 d-men go flying everywhere trying to block shots, and eventually you can fake a shot or two and step into the void of the sliding d-man. #4 players in front always know the puck is coming, so go for the deflection, crash the net, and/or retrieve the puck right away gives them the advantage of always knowing what's coming. #5 it opens up lanes down low to pass through the top of the crease for backdoor bang-ins, by d-men purposefully missing the net and banging it down off the back-boards to the guys on the sides of the net, to quickly move to each other (kinda like the Habs do over and over)
look at every good NHL PP, and it's lots of one-timers. So it's no wonder the team's with the biggest cannons have the better PP's. McCabe, Gaborik, Christensen, STaal, Girardi, and Sauer have plenty hard enough shots to make it work.
