This is intriguing question. They wilted under physical contact the moment the Canucks responded after those three breakaways. But with their speed and transition game, taking a run at a hawk means putting yourself out of position. It's a risky game any team can play with the Hawks. It worked well for a while, but then the Hawks began capitalizing on those odd-man chances.

In the playoffs though, that physical intensity is much more ramped up, so I'm not sure the Hawks could manage under sustained pressure. I'll never underestimate them though!
