Finally!

Have to update this ... for all my frustration on this issue, the Oilers changed strategy to the more conventional 4-forward system last night ... and they didn't abandon it immediately as soon as something went wrong either.

And even after Hemsky's brutal missed assignment on the Leetch goal late in the second ... MacT only gave him one or two more 5on5 shifts ... but he had him play virtually all of the next PP

Common sense has come home!

...

With Hemsky on the ice during the powerplay:
Scored 8 goals, allowed 1 SH goals against. (Net +7 goals)

Without Hemsky on the ice during the powerplay:
Scored 2 goals, allowed 3 SH goals against. (Net -1 goals)

Hmmmm.

And wiith a forward on the point (very limited ice-time at this).
Scored 3 goals, allowed 0 SH goals against. (Net +3 goals)
