Hendricks with a good first period on the perimeter and forecheck .... nothing in the slot, nothing more than typical 4th line grinder play ... still helped his line generate some pressure.

The big problem is we're playing perimeter hockey. Too few players getting to the slot ... even more rare is the player in the slot positioned to do anything more than screen. Shot from the point ... shot from the half wall ... nobody to do anything down low. Looks great when you look at the score sheet afterwards but that isn't an accurate depiction.
I don't understand the perimeter play when Nystrom and Gaustad our among our leaders in icetime.
