Hitting to produce/nullify offense is a different animal, yet neither were real examples despite you providing the videos for evidence.
Did the game change because Giroux hit Crosby, or Giroux scored after Steve Sullivan couldn't clear the zone (after the Penguins had attack time in our end)? And then the Flyers scored again after getting a power play? And then when Fleury gave up a meatball to Gustafsson? If Giroux doesn't SCORE (miss the net, have the shot saved or blocked), then it doesn't really matter. And if the Flyers lost the game then it really didn't matter.
Schenn's hits changed Game 1 so much, that the Penguins scored again. So, he did the conventional thing instead, which was produce offense.
When hitting and energy are the two first things that come to your mind when describing a player, it's because you're describing a bad player.
