Yep. One thing I've noticed in the last couple of months -- when we're playing like **** -- we tend to run around too much in our zone. When we finally get it out, we dump it and change all five guys, which means that our opponent comes out of their zone uncontested and we basically give them half of the ice free.

When we're at our best, we get it deep, pin teams down there, and cycle. That's what we need to do, and it's all gonna start from our defensive zone and moving the puck out quickly. These unforced turnovers in our own zone need to stop. A quick team like Buffalo will burn us if we do that too much.
