All 3 eastern conference opponents of the Penguins gave the Penguins a harder time so far. Sharks look very ordinary. Its very obvious, there is nothing they can come up with when you dont get intimidated by their physical presence and Sullivan did a heck of a job to adjust to their only strenght. Before the game he reportedly told his team to go out and respond every single hit with one of their own and specially in the first and big parts of the second it worked. In game 3 the Sharks, out of desperation started to become dirty specially Thornton started to push, shove and crosscheck Malkin and Crosby but i am happy the Penguins never responded likewise and did not allow them to get them out of sync and rhythm.
