“I think we have to do a better job trying to limit the amount of times we put ourselves in that position where (we wonder) ‘Is that a Slash? Is that not a Slash?’ We know the rules, (the referees are) looking for it especially early in the Playoffs, they want to set the tone – We cannot give the Pittsburgh Penguins so many Power Plays, with the talent that they have throughout the lineup, you’re playing with fire when you do that.”
