Yeah that's what I meant from playing the demo. It's not that they don't work, it's just you can't stick lift, get the puck, and turn the other way anymore. It's more to just stall them so the forwards who are back-checking can help out.

Poke checks still seem to work as normal from what I saw though. It might be different from the real game, but I couldn't tell the difference. Maybe it's the new game speed mixed in with the lack of agility since I've only been using Boston/Vancouver's defense.
