those three bullet points are within the teams concept, for sure. from what i have read on tsn and within the GDT, we played a more suffocating style in the neutral zone and sat back a bit once we had a lead and forced them to dump a lot of pucks in and chase. the way we played with the lead seems to have been different than in some other games. like i said i didn't watch a whole lot, and the part of the game i did see i was at a bar.

on a side note, it's been good to us able to play with a lead. in the past x amount of years we had a problem in that area.
