you are right about forcing the opposing pk to move side to side. facts are though, they are getting paid too and they have coaching and scouting too.

they have decided to keep green and ovechkin from shooting. they dont care if backstrom shoots. so, there is very little urgency for them to go side to side toward backstrom. they also are not afraid of brouwer in the slot. if brouwer were semin or the like or ovechkin with a good long range gunner in ov's spot, they would care about that brouwer spot. not with brouwer though. not til he scores it from there a lot more often
