They are losing possession of the puck too much in their own zone, and letting forwards get behind them deep in their zone. 3 defenders moved towards the same Canuck, leaving a clear path to the net. They ust don't seem to be as well coordinated on defence this season as last. Not having a pre-season is part of the reason, but, overall, both the forwards and the defencemen don't seem to be playing well (disciplined) in Hitch's system as they were last year.
They need to get back to that dominating puck possession and great checking game and smothering defence they had last season. They are limiting shots on goal fairly well, but they are giving up way too many easy chances. They are making a LOT more mistakes than last season, with almost all the same players.
