No, I think mikeford is right, they should have played keep away. It was risky to do as they were doing - I know they wanted to get another goal, but they risked giving one up playing that way. Then the ref put his whistle away hilariously and there it is.
I'd rather they try and score, with how bad this team is at allowing breakaways on the power play of doom, all it would take is one mishandled pass against a team that's desperately forechecking and then it's off to the races. This isn't soccer, you can't hide in the corner.
