They certainly dominated the Islanders for the majority of the game last night, but didn't drive the net as well as they should. There were some juicy rebounds there at times, and there weren't a lot of screens. The PP units love passing the puck around the perimeter but little else; it's like they don't know what else to do without Mac & Frk there as trigger men.
This really is the same as last year - too much cycling the puck and not enough putting it on the net. That has carried over, but now with lesser talent, no point shooter (damn I miss Frk), and no one right in there for the dirty goal (Fournier).

Half the time there seems to be three guys in the corner trying to dig the puck out to.... no one. So many chances if only someone had been parked in front of the net for either the pass out from the corner or the rebound and its frustrating to watch.

And the power play
