D-zone was solid but had too many breakdowns. They'd be fine for a bit but then would be swimming for a while, relying solely on Hank. Breakout particularly left a lot to be desired.

Offensively I agree, forecheck was not there. Dubi and Prust are missed to an extent for sure, but I actually thought Pyatt filled in well for Prust from a forechecking standpoint. I was less impressed with the o-zone possession of the top 2 lines, especially line 2. Callahan can't be that invisible in a game, not to mention Gabby and Stepan.
