Marty isn't calling for his team to crank it into the Rangers' faces (I'm sure he'd rather they shoot to score), but he wants to get that idea into the Rangers' heads so maybe next time they want to go sliding for a block, they're thinking about this instead, and hesitate.

In the end, the people who already dislike Marty will find reasons to confirm that dislike. That's what we're seeing here.
Yeah pretty much this.
