Gill looks for team effort in shutting down 87 & 71
Montreal Canadiens Defenseman Hal Gill returns to Pittsburgh this evening for a showdown with the defending Stanley Cup champions.
Gill will have the tough test of slowing down two of his former teammates in Evgeni Malkin and Sidney Crosby but indicates it will take a team effort.
“Crosby and Malkin are different types of players with unique styles that are tough to counter,”Hal Gill said. “Let’s just say that my game is an open book! But seriously, we need to support each other against a team like this and we can’t get into one-on-one battles with these guys. We’ll have to depend on each other out there.”
Gill has a plus/minus rating of -4 on the season.
