We just have  to get some faster action on the power plays.  Make use of the power play time. Shoot to the net...shoot shoot shoot-------boys are  great!


Why is the "solution" to the powerplay always "shoot?"


Shooting in contested lanes on the powerplay is recipe for a defensive zone clearance from the PK, and we saw it several times. The second unit can get away with it because it seems like they're good puck retrievers, but the couple of times we shot into traffic on the PP, we just ended up wasting valuable time. 


The answer to PP woes is almost always more movement, with the puck and with skating as you presumably implied with your first sentence, not "shoot more."
