The other activities after a whistle were things you see in every rivalry game I feel.
It's called physical hockey. Because it's the Flyers/Pens it's gooning it up. The script is written on how to beat them, hit 'em hard and often and they get off their game. LeTang was scared to death to go into the corner with Zac. They're free skaters and don't want to be hit, get in their heads and they lose it. Except for G blowing up Sid in game 6, it amazes me how he avoids all contact.

This season opener was farely tame and we lost.
