Due to MDZ and BR not having a third link to pass the puck to on the outside of the box -- it werent all that easy for them to pass between each other.
That is a very good point, Gabby was essentially useless along the half wall. No instincts whatsoever.
The PP also suffers when Cally is forced to make decisions with the puck. You never want Cally playmaking on the PP. Not to mention , Dan G should never see PP time...ever...
