Furthermore, it appears as though the strategy to thwart a Lindy Ruff power play is to aggressively pursue the puck. I find that all of our players panic when faced with an aggressive checker and either cough it up or dish it to a guy not in position to receive a pass or make a play.
I noticed yesterday as I was at the game that the Hurricanes were really pressuring the blueline on the PP. That was bad, we couldn't hold it in. The cross arena feeds killed us as well. We really had no composure.
