Why do none of our top line guys go to the net? They skate around it or just avoid it all together. The game in STL, look who got the goals and how they got them. By going to the net and getting rebounds. No one goes to screen the goalie, no one is there for passes.
Often when our guys do go to the net, it seems they often get too close to the goalie. A nice juicy rebound pops out and they whiff/miss because they're so close in they have no time to react. Or someone tries to sneak a pass in, but they're in so tight there's no way to get it there. They just have no space.

On the other side, I've never understood why our power-play strategy is to have the defenseman front the attacking player and let him stand right in front of Rinne. Knock him on his #$@#$ tail and tell him he's going to get worse if he comes back.
