Get it out of the zone!

Probably the most frustrating thing I see this year with the Rangers, aside from the lack of goals, is the inability to clear the zone. I feel like every time we have the puck in our own zone we either turn it over, or don't get it across the blue line.

I haven't been able to watch as many games this year as I'd like (time zone and work), but I was wondering if others have noticed this, and if it falls on our defense or our forwards.

today we had a hard time clearing the zone but we also played VERY disciplined, most teams would've taken a lot of penalties if the puck was in the zone as long as it was today against us...

kind of seems to come and go depending on the flow of the game. You'll notice it tends to happen to all teams at one point or another, when the opposing team is pressing hard. You don't have time to make a picture perfect outlet pass, or pick a hole in the blueline defense to get it by. That being said, I'm still pissed at how Dawes half assed it and it lead to a goal yesterday
