To what, protect their deficit? And lol at the people calling for 'playing to the whistle.' Playing to the whistle in this case would mean sending out Malkin, Crosby, Letang etc, to try and get back a goal or two in the game. Bushleague move, but I wouldn't expect anything else from the Penguins. They cry when their own players are targetted, yet they somehow are allowed free reign to do it themselves.
Would I be a pit pissed? Not really. Again, nobody has to fight. I'd imagine the Rangers first line would burn the Pens fourth pretty quickly.

Would I encourage my coach to stand up on the bench and scream at his counterpart like a fool? No, no I wouldn't. He looked like a moron yelling about the matchup while his team turned a hockey game into a brawl over a clean hit.
