Eakins also talked about changing guys on the fly, and using high energy guys. He will start with Ziggy and Hamilton to win face offs and when possession is won, he changes them up focusing pressure up ice rather than just concentrating on their own zone. Repeat that pressure up ice, something the Leafs do not do.
