There isn't a team in the league that doesn't do all 4 of those. some do it more or less.

Dump and chase is built to get the puck deep in their zone, so even if we don't get to it, they have to come though 5 players the other way. Trying to dangle and no look back passes at their blue is how we get a jailbreak the other way.

The battle against New Jersey was lost in our end, not theirs.

The idea is to make them play our game, not adapt to theirs. They were trying to do the same thing, make us play their way.

They played better.
