However, teams adjusted to that style in the years after, and Lavi never changed it. Led to a lot of poor pinching decisions by the defense (since they were being pressured to do so) and a lot of breakaways/oddman rushes going the other way.
that sounds about right, since the last game against buffalo and pittsburgh, our pp kill was awful, not to mention against pittsburgh last year in the playoffs, alot of odd man rushes, against new jersey, his style couldnt even beat the trap, nj was constantly in our zone in the whole game in the last four games and refused to adjust, that got us eliminated, not to menion our roster is really poor, no snipers accept giroux.
