Amen brother. I firmly believe the primary reason the Hawks are down 3-1 is their defensive positioning on top in the zone. In my observations, it appears some of the forwards are trying to get breakaways at any opportunity which puts immense pressure on the defensemen to come up with the plays. Those plays puts them out of position, the Yotes shoots pucks to the net and any rebound is met with an open Yotes winger to put back. That has happened on most of the goals. Not to mention that the extremely aggressive forechecking by the Yotes has killed them too. Instead of long passes out of the zone, the wingers should set up shop outside the defensive circles and start a breakout. It would lead to a boring game, but it would open up some creative passing to get shots on goal against (in Konroyd-ese) the Yotes. Here's two pennies.
