O-zone entries have been our bane over the last 10-12 games or so, when we completely went away from using that pick play.

Anyone know why we stopped using it?
It looks to me like defending PKs are focusing more on applying early pressure to the puck carrier and to taking away the middle of the ice through the neutral zone. The net result is that the breakout is routinely being forced to go outside.
