Up the boards and then a short pass to the middle to a forward moving with speed out of the zone has been their SOP for getting out of the zone and it's worked extremely well.
The only time they struggled is the last game of the Phoenix series...but Phoenix had to open up their system to allow themselves to disrupt the forecheck with any real effectiveness. and it wound up being a back and forth game with lots of open ice. Not really a Phoenix or LA type game.
