Sure, Hartnell's not getting as many quality shots as he did in 2012 off that set up, but that doesn't mean it's not effective. Hartnell forces the defenders to collapse on him giving Giroux room to breathe on the wall and allowing Simmonds to be an option on the drop in the corner.

I wouldn't touch the PP. One bad game against a good PK team does not justify changing a winning formula.

Not to mention that drop pass to
G in the defensive zone is as well.
The drop pass has been a great way to allow Giroux entry in the zone for a while. It's a much more high percentage play than dumping it in and trying to get possession or trying to jam a pass through at the blueline.
