They thought they already won the game... or that's all Henke needed to shut them down.

Henke needs 2.5 goals a game to shut down.... they needed that 3rd goal but they played NOT TO LOSE, instead of playing TO WIN

Yep, they did the same in game 1, 2 and 3.

Difference is game 1 had a 4 goal lead and game 3 Hank completely shut the door.

Guys are not moving Richards is planted way often and its disrupting the PP. He stops and tries to freeze guys, while this is good is also disrupts puck movements and if the opposition are in position your essentially holding the back with no play.Rather the PP should move the puck more quickly create odd man play and go from there.

Shooting wide would not be bad if we had guys with proper body position gaining the puck and creating another play. It hard to blame the point man. Yes Karlsson is no doubt an superstar D man,he won me my fantasy regular season but Ott still have guys willing to get dirty more than us so shots that are taken, are deflected, rebounded and also gained control again. This is part of the reason they have continued offensive zone time.

To solve this obviously you have to play in there end. In our end there is not much you can do but keep them to the outside and hope Hank makes saves.

He also has a lot more space because our forwards play deeper and rely on blocking shots and staying in the box position.

The dump and chase works since we don't give up that many odd man rushes when we use it.
But..it's clearly not working for creating offense for ourselves. If we get beat to 70-80% of the dump-and-chase scenarios we intentionally put ourselves in, how does that help our game? I'm hoping next game is vastly different and people like Dubi, Gaby, Richards, and Stepan actually do something offensively for a change. Boyle scoring was nice and all, but he can't be our go-to guy every night.

Defense-first is a great system and works with this team and our forwards being very defensively sound is great, but when your main tactic is to rely solely on that two-way play to cling to a lead, turtle and try to dump-and-chase close to every shift because you "can't" get set up in the offensive zone, you're doing it wrong IMHO.

I posted almost the exact same thing in the PGT.

Score 2 goals by throwing the puck at and crashing the net.

Spend your remaining opportunities dicking around the perimeter like we've been doing all season.

It's mind boggling.

It really is, isn't it? why stop doing what's working? I swear, this team never learns sometimes.

The main thing this team can work on is transition entering the zone on the PP. Its probably the worst thing they do on the PP.

This is a huge problem. Our guys need to think about what they are going to do with the puck before they get it. Instead they hesitate on shots and passes and are too slow to make them and they end up getting blocked or go retardedly off the mark.

Crashing the crease LOL...those are words that do not exist in the mindset of half our forwards and the only 2 guys that do it on a regular basis are Cally and Boyle . Put Bickel up front for a shift...that could make things interesting in front of the Ottawa net .

Every time Del Zotto gets the puck on the point he has to stop and write a letter home to his Mommy for permission to shoot ! Do they ever work on one timers in practice ? It's pathetic...

They need to switch Stralman and DZ on the power play, Stralman needs to be on the left point so he can shoot off the pass. DZ is useless on the left point. He can't one time the puck from there, and whenever he receives the pass he NEVER looks to shoot. Him on that left point is like a black hole, it's useless. Every time he gets the puck he looks to make a cross ice pass back to Richards rather than shoot.

Same thing over and over again.

Here's some advice...

1. Get Del Zotto the **** off the first PP unit. He's terrible lately. The same old breakout every Powerplay. He picks it up behind the net from whomever is sitting there. Skates it at a mediocre speed straight up the middle, drop passes to Richards who is 20 feet behind him, then curls off as Richards tries to skate it up the center.

2. Stepan + Stralman on the point. Stepan needs to start shooting. He sees the ice too well to NOT give him PP time. The problem is, Stepan will pass before shoot and he's passing to a guy (Del Zotto) that wont shoot b/c he's got a mangina.

3. Put Boyle on the first unit.


I'd go with something like this....


First Unit:

Callahan / Boyle / Gaborik
Stepan / Stralman

With this line, you have three guys who can carry the puck well. You have the big body in front of the net. You have the offensive threat that will be watched closely, you have the guy who will win the battles along the boards, you have the guy that sees the ice well and makes the good passes and you have a guy who will pull the trigger at the point AND follow his shot. Steps is solid defensively. Boyle is the only Center we have that can win a faceoff.

Second Unit:

Hagelin / Richards / Anisimov
Del Zotto / Staal

This line you dont have the bomb from the point. You do have an entire line of players that can carry the puck. Lots of speed. The only downside to this is, they all blow at winning battles along the boards or deep in the zone...

I know I have Cally and Anisimov playing their off wing but a lot of times, Callahan ends up on the LW side of the crease anyway. Just my thoughts...
