Golden Knights went hunting for Hughes in Game 1, writes travisyost. MORE:

That’s surely what Vancouver Canucks head coach Travis Green is thinking after a 5-0 drubbing at the hands of the Vegas Golden Knights. The beauty of the Stanley Cup Playoffs – particularly with this year’s relentless scheduling – is that one bad game can be washed away quickly by a strong bounce-back performance. If Vancouver has taught us anything this season, it’s that they have the capability to do just that.

Hughes, like most great puck handlers and distributors, thrives off space and time. He was afforded very little of either in Game 1., Vegas doesn’t have to shuffle their lineup to get one advantageous matchup. The Golden Knights were comfortable rolling their top-nine forwards against the Hughes pairing because they can all forecheck and apply rapid puck pressure.

The strategy against the pairing was simple – take away Hughes’ space and force him to let a weaker puck carrier, like Tanev or a forward, assume the breakout role. But those opportunities won’t matter if the Canucks forward group isn’t providing ample breakout support for their top pairing, and quite frankly, Tanev is going to need to be materially better if the Golden Knights continue hunting for Hughes when they are pressing the attack.
