You chip the puck in. You send Kunitz or Cooke in to ****ing obliterate whoever has to go retrieve it. This will pay off later when they start to become hesitant to retrieve. You send in a guy like Dupuis or Kennedy who can scrounge up pucks along the boards, a guy like Neal or Staal who can body people along the boards. You have a guy like Letang pinching in occasionally to force the puck deep again. You have Crosby or Malkin out there using their hockey sense to see where it'll come loose and take possession. You have movement throughout the offensive zone. You exhaust them with long board play in their own end. They have 6 defensemen to your 12 forwards. Grind those *****es down.
When the puck is in your end, pressure the puck carrier. Do not let them do as they please, direct them to the corners using proper gap control. As soon as the play starts to break and a scramble ensues, take the body, not the puck. Body your man away from wherever the trouble is. Do not stand around looking for the puck. Anticipate, do not react.
