Also, the breakout is getting annoying. How many times per game do we see the forwards exit the zone before the d-men can make a play and then watch the defensemen stand in with the puck in their own zone with no one to pass to? They rarely exit the zone as a team because they focus on playing too quickly. When it works it's great, but it almost never works.
In absolute agreement... Except for the 'is getting' bit. It's been like that all season, and it is KILLING our 5 on 5 offense.
