You can only hope to contain them.


When asked about keys to success against the Penguins, several Blue Jackets players (many of whom have previously played in the Eastern Conference) said it's pretty simple: Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin are going to get their chances - and you have to live with that - but you can't let them beat you. It's not about stopping them, it's about containing them and not letting them run the show. A big part of doing that is staying out of the penalty box and not giving the Penguins' high-powered offense anything for free.
