IMO yesterday's loss was not so much because of a lack of talent (we showed the hawks that we can keep up with them in previous battles) but a lack of on ice positioning. I really analyzed yesterday's matchup and realized that the avs are doing the same amateur defensive mistakes that my minor does from time to time. For example, both wingers in the defensive zone were NOT covering their point men, instead they were attracted to the puck thus leaving chicago's defensemen completely open on the blue line to recieve passes and make plays. Down low in the corners the center man was not supporting his defenseman, only watching.

Do you guys think Lindy Ruff could get these boys to play better defensive hockey in their zone?
