Last resort is the old fashioned screen play. I for one felt Brouwer was excellent in that screen role in his limited chances there last year. And no matter who we have where, we need people to shoot.
I think we have had people shooting especially in the 2 pps last night. They tried at least and kept hitting the mass of Ranger humanity.
I would have a different approach all together if we were going to change up...one they wouldn't expect. On our standard play I'd have Ribs throw it down to Backstrom and immediately bum rush the net along with Brouwer+Ovechkin while Backstrom from the goaline banks it off Lundqvuist. Just try to bumrush it in.
Tampa did that too us a ton in 2011. They get guys going to the net and just chuck it in front from bad angles where no one would expect they would.
