To put it in perspective Pittsburghs top 6 forwards in hits are:
Glass (81)
Kunitz (78)
Cooke (66)
Dupuis (65)
Morrow (48)
Neal (46)

Boston's are:
Lucic (104)
Thornton (48)
Campbell (39)
Kelly (28)
Paille (27)
Horton (26)

Now they've also gone out and added Murray to their blueline.

Not world beaters, but smart moves on Shero's part and moves that should make them harder to beat in a 7 game series where they can wear you down.

Kunitz and Dupuis stand out for me here. They're on the top line with Crosby, and they hit. No wonder they're so good. Hitting creates space, and Crosby helps too.
