Bring on the Goons...we out-physicalled them last night!!
And we did it in a clean manner, unlike the Flyers. Once that team is down three goals, they get stupid and they get dirty.
One example is Scott Hartnell. He hurt his team more than he helped them last night. I counted three absolutely stupid penalties taken on his part last night. Cooke baited him with one call and then he blatantly interfered with Fleury. Both of those penalties occured in the first period while the score was only 1-0. He then went on to trip Letang in the third and then received a 10 minute misconduct penalty at the end of the third.
As a Penguins fan, I hope Hartnell continues to play dumb hockey. It only helps us in the long run. Considering he only has one or two goals against us this season, I would rather see the team worry about Richards, Gagne, Briere and Carter. Let Hartnell play like a bum and then catch him when he has his head down or pay him a visit when we have a significant lead.
Eitherway, if we take game two, I expect we will see Godard in the lineup for game three and depending on what happens with Carcillo and his hearing, I'm sure we will see Cote at some point. Bring on Biron...
