1) Frustrate Sid until he becomes a petulant baby and takes himself out of the game by not trusting his teammates trying do too much on his own.
2) Shoot the puck somewhere in the vicinity of the Pens net and let their goaltending do the rest.
Anyone know the Pens record with Sid out (Malkin leading) vs Sid in (Sid leading)?
Actually I think the record is about the same. Malkin just becomes more dominant when Crosby is out.
Malkin is too much of a one man show right now though. He's like Kesler only more talented.....but no matter which way you look at it, one man isn't going to beat 5.
