It's more purposeful movement for sure; they have some set plays that open up shooting lanes, even if for a moment, due to constant repositioning of the D. They have this little sweet point-halfwall-highslot-point play that opens up not just shooting but passing options. It's beautiful!
If nothing else, there's no self-inflicted momentum killing going on unless they just can't get possession in the zone. The PP has much more 'purpose' and it's great to see.
The PK could use more work but I think it's just experience--our young D aren't the shot/lane-blockers Mitchell and Greene are, and our PK goaltending has been subpar, too; i'm sure it will come around
