Tactical Help

I'm new to the game, and hockey in general, so I was hoping to get a bit of tactical advice on how I've set up my Pittsburgh Penguins. Offensively and defensively we seem to be doing OK—offensively usually around the 70 mark, and defensively around the 50 mark—but my Power Play and Penalty Killing ratings are often well down on the opposition's. I've done some research online to try and find out how the Penguins set these up IRL, but whilst I can find a ton of info on their lines, there appears to be very little on the special plays.

We've been doing OK so far, getting 3-2-2 in pre-season, and 2-1-0 in regular season, but I feel like we'd be doing better if I set things up a bit better tactically.

Here are some screenshots of how I've set things up thus far:

5 on 5

Power Play

Penalty Killing

4 on 4 / 3 on 3

Any help/advice would be greatly appreciated.

To give you an example, we're now 5-1-0 and top the table for Power Play Chances with 29. However, we've only managed 4 goals from those PPs. That % puts us 18th from 30.

Something else I'm noticing is that we appear to be less than clinical despite having a decent 1st and 2nd line. We're currently 11th overall for goals scored with 17, but 4th for shots with 203.

Looking at the league standings, where we sit 3rd, we're well down on those around us for GF, despite having played 1 more game than most of the rest of the top 10.
