As it was repeated time and time again since Game #2 until now, the Outlaws are going to have to continue their physical play but not to the point where they take penalties in order to keep having success. Driving hard to the net is also a plus for the Outlaws as they have scored 85% of their goals in the dirty areas in front of the Langley net.
