I do not think the defense is good, it looks ok on paper.
The pieces do not fit together to make a good unit.
The goaltending was not good, that I will agree.
But, I feel the defense is like a unit.
Gaining confidence when they succeed and losing
confidence when they fail to stop the puck.
The goalie may play poorly, and the defense may suffer.
Then again the defense may play poorly and the goalie may
lose confidence in them as well.
I think Lavi tried to work with what he had defensively, but
without PMD its harder to move the puck to generate offense.
The other team would get the puck in and keep it in our zone,
until they scored or we took a penalty.
It was hard to watch and I had a bad feeling when the puck was in our end.
