Center Brooks Laich said the unit rarely allows second looks and does a very good job cleaning out the front of the net, forcing teams to capitalize when an opportunity develops.
"They're a veteran group," Laich said. "They've been together for a long time, most of them, and they're very well-coached. Then special teams, the power play struggled against Winnipeg, but they get a lot of shots. They look to shoot the puck. They don't give you much defensively and they've got good goaltending, so for us, it's a big challenge."
