Can you say "anti-climatic?" Jets start strong then stumble to a 4-1 loss to the Sens

No different than last year. Challenge the puck carrier at the blue line aggressively, and they'll almost always dump it in. Either intercept the dump in, or use one D to "block" the puck carrier while the other one gets it. Just keep plugging up the middle, since we never pass to a winger or do a drop pass.
As far as offence go into corner and pass it in front of the net for a back door play. Pavelec plays too far out of position and our D doesn't cover the back door properly (see Neil goal).
It's really sad how we don't seem to change any of this. We win board battles a lot and have the talent to go far, but the above two hold us back drastically.
