I'd like to also ask that the center or strong side winger also do his job and stay below the blue line when the D are coming around the net to give him an outlet pass rather than trying to throw the puck through the forecheck creating turnover after turnover.
Way too many times the D was presented with no good pass options and they threw it off the boards, or try to go through someone only to have it stay in the zone. I think we're getting a little to anxious to exit the zone lately. Normally if the pass wasn't there they would curl back and go D to D waiting for the forwards to come back an reset. The Boston forecheck was preventing that, but there should still be a short pass to be had.
