You're talking about 2-1 games where a little sway in momentum can make a difference. You're also talking about having a guy like Parros readily available as a bounty hunter to protect guys like the lil Huberdeau if he's being picked on.
George Parros nor any enforcer or goon will ever 'wake a team up' when they're playing poorly.
No one said it would miraculously help a team score three goals. Hockey is a game of energy and flow. When a team is flat, as we have been for about 15 straight periods, some physical play , team togetherness, and a fight can wake the team up. Very few teams lay down like we do when we are getting pummeled on the scoreboard. I still believe in the old hockey saying, if you can't beat them, beat them up. And live to play another day. Our flat play is becoming the norm.
And as I'm typing this, they just showed the example of how the Lecavallier fight against philly SPARKED the team to a victory.
