I don't know if it was mentioned yet as I haven't read the thread...
I absolutely LOVE how our system didn't change when we got the lead in the 3rd. The forecheck remained strong and players continued to dump the puck and play aggressive with the lead, instead of just dumping it in and sitting back in the trap.
I also noticed that the weakside dman moved forward on our breakouts, instead of passing it back and forth behind the net and letting the forecheck come get us.
2 forwards came back to assist the single dman on our breakouts, while the weakside guy went out to the blueline to provide an outlet in case there was trouble. Matt Greene did very well in this regard. You want your puckhandlers handling the puck and I thought there was a noticeable improvement in the breakouts.
If we could make consistent passes that aren't behind players or in the skates we'll be really strong.
