"We've got to make it tough on Fleury," said Blue Jackets forward Brandon Dubinsky, according to NHL.com. "That's doesn't mean running him over and taking penalties. It's going hard and making sure it's a difficult night for him, a difficult night for their defenseman going back and chasing pucks all night.
We definitely need to be more physical and make them pay the price. That's goes back to our forecheck. Our forecheck wasn't hard enough [Saturday]. We weren't physical. We didn't create enough turnovers."
