You have to realize Claude Noel didn't implement much of a system last year, which I don't blame him for. Now this year we have a shortened training camp and no pre-season games. For years Atlanta played with very little systems.

That being said these last two games have been very much systems oriented. The problem is the system is too predictable now. We almost always give them room in their zone and do a passive 1-2-2 forecheck, if you can even call it a forecheck. The results are positive, because we've limited shots on goal these past few games, we've never done that before.

We lost last game due to defensive breakdowns. Guys weren't covering their man, or loading up one side of the ice. This isn't the coaches fault at all. Pavs could've had at least one of those goals. The reality is he's made one "good" save all year that I can recall.
