Secondly, are you kidding? We don't match their size, and not even close to matching their toughness. Not saying that makes them better, just different. I also remember Sid taking some serious cheapshots against them later in the year, including a hit to the head from behind by Krejic I think. Doubt Engo or Glass could match Thorton and Lucic. And no way can Cooke, Vitale, or Kunitz match Chara, McQaid, and Horton.
Not at all. I saw it with my own eyes. Pretty sure it was the 3/11/2012 game last season (I was mistaken about it being earlier in the season). Pens established physical dominance early and kicked ass the whole game. Here's the recap.
