While there are more people hitting each other, I still only see the skill coming through to score goals. Otherwise it's actually a very boring game. When you need a goal, you can't crash and bang your way past lundqvist. Ottawa was hitting hard last night but their chances weren't very good/they couldn't finish the few they had.
Hockey players are all pretty tough. The fact that hitting has increased doesn't mean the Habs can't hit (in fact it was a hit parade at the end of the season). Tough guys that can score - invaluable. But you have to interperse them with playmakers and guys who can convert and break a game.
