It's a half trap with full ice pressure. Flyers are having a problem getting out of their own end because of the Devil's forecheck. I actually thought it would drain the energy out of the Devils, but it hasn't.
The solution is dumping the puck in at the red line, but the full ice pressure, making the Flyers pressured to pass quickly once they regain the puck, is making it so they cannot even get to the red line. The Flyer's side of the neutral zone is clogged. Even when they make it to the red line, everyone is so far away trying hang back to get it out of their own end, that everyone is late getting to the dump in. Marty comes out and plays the puck. Repeat. A few Flyers have tried to be specific, when they can, and put the puck in the corner so Marty cannot get it in the trapezoid.
Full ice pressure. Clog. Grind the piss out of the Flyers. Repeat.
