    Prevent Defense

     

    Never, never, never and never does a prevent defense work in any sport especially when it is attempted against a high-offense team such as Pitt.  This was a stupid and embarrassing loss with the blame solely on coaching.  I read where Julien said "we" (that must be the imperial we...) made bad decisions...  Hey coach who made bad decisions???? 

     

    Talk about fining players for whatever - this is a classic case of handing a stupid coach a $50k fine for his obvious stupidity and lack of coaching expertise!

    The New Jersey Devils and their three Cups would disagree with you.

    Also bingo a true "prevent defense", which isn't what Boston employed last night, in hockey is called the "neutral zone trap" and a bunch of Cups have been won by teams that used it, most notably the Devils and the 70's Habs.

    And to a lesser degree the Wild under Jacques Lemaire.  In their first eight years with him the team was 293-255-108 (.529) including 171- 98-58 at home (613).   The Wild’s 293 wins in its first eight seasons are the most of any of the nine NHL expansion teams since '91.

    Re: Prevent Defense

    Yeah, I think the OP is wrong on every level. 

    -The prevent defense works often.  More often then it doesn't.  If you execute it poorly, it doesn't work well.

    -That wasn't the prevent defense last night.  There was no trap or obvious strategy change.  The Bruins got tired and sloppy.  Lazy backcheck too.  That was regular Bruins hockey in terms of formation, but guys were downright lethargic.

    -The Bruins, and other teams, have been very effective in holding the lead without pressing offensively (if that's what you call 'prevent').  Simple passes, hard off the glass, puck in deep when they get possession, hard backcheck, stay out of the box, lots of d-zone coverage, no odd man rushes, clear out the slot/crease aggressively, etc.  Watch game 7 against Vancouver.  After the two goal lead is established they changed to the habits above instead of sending three guys deep into the offensive zone to try to score.  Worked like a charm.  Every counter-attack was met with aggressive defense.  Canucks couldn't do a thing.
