2. Not really. They're more of a chase the other team around the zone team. Aggressive along the boards, pressing the opposing defensemen to move the puck ASAP. One thing the Monsters do fairly well is keep the puck along the boards and under the net in the low-percentage scoring areas. It doesn't really show in their goals against numbers, but they've gotten a lot better in their own zone since November when they were downright terrible.
Good to know. I'm guessing the Avs are blocking shots largely because they're now too damned slow to attack the puck in their own zone, which is sad. Adding a shot-blocker in Zanon probably just made the transition that much easier.
