Another thing I've noticed is we are losing most of the 50/50 pucks in our zone, and their zone. Idon't know fi they're such a speedier team, but this needs to be corrected, initiate contact, win the puck.

What are other things you've noticed?

Yeah, the Caps are pushing the Rangers D back into the zone, and the Rangers are allowing it. The gap control is way off, but i've seen that happen a lot this year for some reason. I think the forwards have to come back a little harder, but the Rangers need to stand up at the line a little longer. They are basically given the zone very easily and that needs to stop.
