While I would like to see a goal here and there, I think you undersetimate how effective this is later in games.

Grnding like this down low pretty much every shift wears out a teams defence. Both physically and mentally.

I believe this grinding style is one of the reasons we have the success we have in the 3rd periods

Would it help is we scored mre often from that line, yeah, but they are doing their jobs and they are doing those jobs very well and we are seeing the results from that late in games.
