Yandle has this penchant for giant slapshots that he hesitates to let go, and when he does no D is fooled so they get blocked. He needs to start flicking them at the net quickly. He has a pretty good wrister, and usually has success with it. But the giant wind up nonsense? Rarely scores. You don't need velocity to score anymore. Every team is so good about blocking shots that it is more about placement nowadays. You aren't going to beat the goalie straight up. You need a screen, a deflection or a tricky wrister.

Emery was fighting the puck all night long. They just had to put it on him. But they kept going for the super cute play, and that just doesn't work on a meat and potatoes team.
