Not here to cause trouble, just want to give you an opinion on the PP.
What I noticed in the Devils series was that the Rangers did an incredible job of pressuring the point men as soon as they had the puck. They gave us no time to make a decision and it led to numerous turnovers as well as shorthanded chances.
For some reason, though, it doesn't look like the Rangers are pressuring the point men like they did last series. Of course, our PP is nothing like the Pens and they have far more fire-power. But I think that if something worked well in one series, you should stay with it. I just seems like the Rangers are on their heels on the PK.
Not sure if any one else noticed this and not sure why they changed it up.
Rangers gave Pittsburgh too much respect that's why they lowered the pressure on the PK. They got burned for doing it too. The Pens PP won them three games now. Game 1, Game Winner. Game 2, Game Winner. Game 3, Game Winner. All on the Powerplay.
We go strong side power play... EVERYTIME I see us struggle.. Teams overload our strong side and FORCE the play to the weak-side. I can't BELIEVE the Rangers haven't tried it. You don't have to play a conventional box because we only play one side of the ice. That left winger on the weak side point has almost no angle to the net. LET HIM SHOOT IT!! It'll be a rebound to the weak side corner and a clear.... if he even MAKES it to the net.
It's not as hard as it looks... If you overload and pressure.. we'll have no time to set up and we'll have to result in a weak-side shot from a lefty getting TERRIBLE angles on the net.
