I also see an adjustment in the defensive zone the last couple of games. No longer are the habs defense chipping the puck along the boards to their forwards, only to lose it at the blueline.
What we see now is a no nonsense approach from the d. Its either off the glass and out, or flipped out to the neutral zone. This is the right approach at least until the habs can gain some confidence.
great post. It's reall making a difference because while it's not the flashiest or most exciting strategy, it's effective and safe. Combine that with strong support from our forwards and we're spending less time in our end.
There was only a few times tonight where we were hemmed in but that was mostly our 4th line
