What to do with a Bad PK?

Workshop 115: MIN's 4v5 struggles

There is a certain order of operations to employ when diagnosing an under-performing penalty kill:

•Are we taking too many penalties?

•Are we over-working our PKers?

•Are we able to prevent entries?

•Are we able to prevent set-ups (off entries or faceoffs)?

•Are we able to deny seam plays?

•Are we able to recover rebounds & clear pucks?

Watch the video above to understand how these points apply to the NHL-worse Minnesota Wild PK, and maybe your team as well.
