Caps and Pens didn't play that way. Mostly a shame for the Caps that had size but didn't use it.

Yes, it's not solely about size. Brière, Giroux and Gagné looks pretty fine. All Q players that were playing in a crap league. So it's not solely about toughness and grit but the best match possible. So obviously, when people talk about size, they don't talk about removing Gionta and Cammy out of the lineup, but have then better surrounded.
