This is an issue the Pens seemed to struggle with a lot this season.

This was also a problem when it came to the Pens' insistence on using those long stretch passes, where instead of their being a forward a few feet away from the D with the puck, they all seemed to be far up the ice waiting for that long Hail Mary pass.

This is one of the key areas where I blame Bylsma. He didn't seem to change the game plan even when those long stretch passes were being intercepted on a regular basis and causing odd man rushes the other way.
