Honestly a lot of it has to do with tightening up.
We go on these awesome stretches of clearing the pucks instantly soon as a team gets into the zone. Then when a team can actually maintain the zone it almost always leads to a goal. We break down instantly when we don't clear the puck and it almost always looks like we are on the PK when its still 5v5.
Maybe I am just being hopeful that its not a flaw in the system but if we stop getting over whelmed when they do maintain the zone we should be able to stop leaving our goalies out to dry. We will never have the perfect shut down defense with AV's system but we should be able to defend the net better when we cant instantly clear the zone. This is amateur hockey and its getting exposed as such right now.
