I think that was definitely part of the strategy against Ottawa, partially because the team was worn out (was Gaborik hurt by then? can't remember) and partially because I don't think it would have been wise to go toe to toe with Ottawa in a track-meet type game. Karlsson is a beast on his skates - slowing the game down was probably to some extent a strategy to keep him from playing the game that he's most comfortable with.

I hope NYR plays a more open style now that they've got some extra firepower though.
