Puck Support and Positioning

The leafs are horrible at this

The coaches have to get on the players about 3 specific problems in this last game vs buffalo

if the puck is in Toronto's end, Toronto MUST outnumber the opponent where the puck is. Unless its a 5on3 or the puck is at the point. If all 3 buffalo forwards are in the corner, AT LEAST 3 maple leaf players should be.

On the powerplay in the offensive zone, Toronto MUST outnumber the opponent. If Buffalo sends all 4 players behind the goal line (which they did tonight) Toronto needs all 3 forwards and at least 1 dman pinching in.

This also happened when we pulled the goalie, Buffalo had more puck support then Toronto did even though we had the extra player.

You probably wont get the puck is your outnumbered.
