Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Greg Logan of Newsday,
(Scott) Gordon’s system is based on an aggressive forecheck that encourages the defense to pinch in an effort to keep the puck in the offensive zone. But sometimes, as happened Saturday in Columbus, the opposing team gains control of the puck and throws it up the ice, sending their forwards off to the races while the Isles scramble to backcheck.
“Personally, I think it’s more of a risky type of game,” (Brendan) Witt said. “There’s a lot of odd-man rushes. But that’s the way he wants us to play, and until he decides he wants to change that, we’re going to play that way.”
