I noticed this as well, the sens didn't handle the physical play very well. Winnipeg was able to take some pretty big runs at are skilled players and no one did anything. Also the sens didn't play much of a physical game at all; very little pressure on the forecheck and the d gave the jets forwards way too much time and space. This should all change when Neil and Carkner are back in the lineup. I expect that when Neil and Carkner are in the lineup, that we see far more aggressive physical play from all players and especially more aggressive play from Smith, Cowen, Greening, Foligno and Konopka.
