They started carrying the puck out of their zone a lot more than they had in the past. Perfected that pass off the boards as well. They still do the stretch pass thing, but mix it up more now, so teams can not just sit there waiting on it. You saw the difference when Letang especially was out, but Martin as well, because Letang is the guy who can really just skate the puck up the ice for the team.

But to me it was the subtle tweak to the system we had been crying out for Bylsma to do, and it worked. 1.3 GAA since February. For some perspective Chicago has the best year long GAA in the league at 1.97 GA. Basically we have been playing at a pace .7 of a point better than the best in the league since February.
