That's the problem with the PK - we're not playing a "box" we're floating and actually chasing the puck.....

The Hawks need to play a tight box on the PK and problem solved...

Keep the opposition on the outside, let them shoot the puck. When that happens let Crawford see the shot or block it if you can - or don't make a shot even possible from the outside..

Presently the PK is just wondering and pretty much challenging shooters one-on-one.... That's not going to work and never will work because it will allow the PP to creep into Crawford and screen him...

Then again, I'm not shocked considering how offensive minded this team is and their general strategy is to go straight for the puck, however that is a habit they will have to break when they're attempting to kill penalties....
