Ideally, it wouldn't be the same every time we kill a penalty all year. That was a huge problem in the playoffs. Philly knew we really only had one powerplay strategy. In the regular season teams don't really have time to do much gameplanning. In the playoffs, they do.

I can just imagine throwing out Sid and Geno to kill a penalty against a team with some young kid on the point and really getting in his head. Even discouraging teams from putting a forward on the point. They wouldn't need to be out there much to get in the other team's head.
