I do feel the puck doesnt move as fast on the powerplay as it did early in the season, and honestly it does not have to do with how the teams play us... subban likes to control the pace of the game and thats fine, but he made our PP more predictable imho. its a lot easier for goalies to track the puck now compared to how we were playing on the PP early on with one touch passes without actually stopping the puck and letting the box adjust. my 2 cents. we are one or two minor tweaks away from getting goals on the pp.
