We don't get the puck out the 1st time we get a stick on it, or even the 2nd or the 3rd time. When it takes 4, 5, 6 attempts to get the puck out and up the ice the other team is gonna have alot of possession and alot of chances. I think our defense is fine as far as stopping chances and taking possession. The problem is, that's the rarely the end of it.

I think the strategy is fine as far as making the stop. It's how many times they have to make the stop that's causing problems.
I agree that the transition game is a big issue, and I would attribute it to the speed of Ottawa. We've seen this team struggle against major speed all year, and Ottawa has that.
