Was watching the Sen/Rangers game during intermissions and commercial breaks. Found it interesting that Karlsson is now getting the Mike Green treatment in one shift alone he got hit three times pretty hard.
Crosby comes back and Malkin's production drops. All that is secondary to how Fleury plays though. He doesn't preform and they're in trouble. The interesting part is how Crosby handles the physicality. We already know Malkin can quickly become a detriment when getting hit. Does Sid fold a little bit given the past two years?
Yea if I'm playing Crosby I'm finishing my check hard everytime.
Letang coming back is also key
On paper and all I don't see a team that really comes close to them
I see a couple teams. They aren't overly physical and they're not overly technical. Boston and Rangers can easily break them down and Canucks could skate around them. They're a good in the middle team and teams like Philly and Ottawa could be easy match ups.
