This is a BIG factor in both our PP and our general ability to score.

For some reason, our D-men have struggled to get pucks on net from the point. They rarely shoot and the ones they do shoot are often blocked.

Yes it's because LA collapses a lot but this should give time and space to pass it off. The D's puck moving and shots have become worse than bad lately.

Get our pointmen going and our PP will jump start because it looks like the main source of goals now is a puck on net and jamming it in from a rebound.


Edit: This is the problem with the PP vs the Kings.

There is no point in having good puck movement if LA collapses and just blocks the passing lanes. What we can do is either move the puck for hours and hope we get a seam, hope for a bounce or get a point shot that gets through.

After this actually happens is when there is reason to crash the net.

Another thing: LA collapsing is a natural screen for Quick. puck that gets through might just go in the net too.

I actually like Ballard on the point. He is playing with more confidence and is not coughing up the puck really. But the main thing is that he generates chances on the point. He was in on the Pahlsson goal.

Exactly right ^^^ We need more bodies to actually have the cojones to stand in front of the goalie and we need the coach to realize that Edler needs to sit on the bench during the PP and allow a different offensive dman to take over.
