I thought early on the game we were overpursuing the puck in their corners. But later as the game progressed the center was staying higher in the O zone offering support to our Dmen.

I was actually surprised that we still played with a two man deep forecheck. The key is there was always a high forward protecting against the Sens breakout. Plus we were winning the vast majority of the board battles.
