I ask because Buffalo's PP has been abysmal this month at a 2-for-34 clip. We struggle with zone entries and have been only so-so with our in-zone offense of late, as there has been a real lack of movement in our units, keeping the puck to the outside in the few times we do gain the zone. Also, our go-to entry is similar to this diagrammed drop and carry, where our puck carrier is frequently dispossessed in the NZ or it's defended well enough that we're forced to retrieve a dump-in that more often than not is iced quickly.

In sum, I want to know if you think Winnipeg's PK will be a remedy for Buffalo's PP woes .. or if you've seen enough improvement lately that you think you can defend that type of zone entry and Vanek's net front presence when we're in-zone?
Our PK was missing our best PK D man until the last two games Bogosian which hurt but our #1 issue has been Pavs save % which has been in the .700's during the PK........just brutal!! If Pavs continues his torrid PK save % pace we should be able to fix your PP issues (here to help)

Our PP has been uglier that on PK IMHO......probably the worst in the league if it wasn't for our crazy shooting % that has artificially bloated our stats.

5v5 we are actually a decent hockey team with sub standard goaltending.
