Case in point the Tyler Kennedy goal from Thursday night to tie the game. He literally went into the butterfly and hoped the puck hit him. There was no effort to fight for the puck or even fight through the screen. Also it's the NHL, there will always be players in front of the net, so don't use that as an excuse why the goal went in.
Over the years it has become customary for defenseman to clear screens. As for fighting for the puck high in the zone, that's what the line is supposed to do.
