What I don't understand is why you dump it into the corner each and every time; then you lose 75% of the races for the puck.
It's not just racing for the puck. Even if you don't get the puck, enough pressure and coverage of the boards should let you keep the puck in the zone at least 50% of the time. It's not happening though. Partly because Bulis-Ribeiro-Kovalev is terrible at working the boards. Kovalev will never go deep in the zone, he'll cruise half way deep then wait. Ribeiro will never win a battle deep in. Bulis will sometimes get the puck, but then he will fumble it or give it away. Result: we can't establish our PP.
While he has his flaws, Bonk is fairly good working the boards, he's been good at faceoffs in the serie and he's been working the front of the net on the PP before (in Ottawa).
