Team are going to make you earn the middle of the ice. Good teams, that is. Ottawa was fine letting the Stars go where they pleased.
Also, the dump and chase depends on you winning races and puck battles. If you don’t, it’s the hockey equivalent of a punt. The Stars are in a bad way offensively where they’re getting no chances skating up on the rush and aren’t getting many from their dump and chase. It’s largely like they kill time while waiting for their next power play.
