They pressure that they sustain has to create more opportunities from their skill players. The problem is the skill guys arenít battling for position consistently enough and relying on scoring off the rush, and then they go right into getting shots from the point.
I want to see some toughness out of them, more cycling, and create more quality opportunities. Obviously they have to finish these opportunities, but I want to see more from the forwards.
You are correct, the PP was getting extremely predictable as well. We did get a few chances from the forwards, later in the game, off the forcheck. However, that might be simply a product of a team playing with a lead.
