Dump and chase (make the defense turn around)

Anne-Marie Sorvin-USA TODAY Sports

The Sharks are faster than people give them credit for, and they have the ability to hem slower, less talented lines into their own zone when things are going according to plan. We saw San Jose on a relentless forecheck early in the season, and their support down low was remarkable.

They need to get back to that, and tonight’s contest against the Oilers is a good chance to reestablish this particular part of their game. Edmonton’s defense is in shambles at the moment, and the Sharks need to take advantage of that fact by dumping the puck in, making the defense turn around and put pressure on them.

They’ll turn pucks over. It’s just a matter of pressure and time.
