I was thinking he doesn't fight much because of his hand injury.
I can't see how the Pens would send down Engelland or even rotate Engelland/Lovejoy.Lovejoy has done well,but I'm to thinkin that Engelland has gotten much better since the beginning of the season.I thought he played really good in the past two road games.Plus he obviously brings the toughness part that the blueline has solely lacked.Something that we have all criticized at one point or another.And as much as I hate to say it.It gives Bylsma the luxury of not having to dress Godard,and in reality shorten his bench when Godard plays 2 minutes a game.Asham,Rupp,and Engelland.Three pretty tough guys that I think can handle things if the going gets tough....
