By the way, our lack of success at ES has little to do with Plekanec so far, but a lot to do with how much our forwards are not competing in one on one battles.
By the way, Pacioretty, take a look at Simmonds. See what he does when he handles the puck and try to use your body the same way.
I think we have to give Philly some credit. They're doing exceptionally well on their own zone. You can criticize yourself as much as you want, but from time to time you have to acknowledge the great work of the opposing team.
