Yeah but how do you do that? By hitting Orpik? That was not why you guys gave us fits. It was because the Islanders outcoached Bylsma and took away the passing lanes for those stretch passes, and had the speed to go the other way. Then you outworked the Pens, and out speeded them, to the loose pucks in the offensive zone. Did hitting have anything at all to do with the Islander success in that series?
That is why all this talk of having to hit the Pens as the secret weapon to beat the Pens is puzzling to me.
