Re: Borg or Dominion??

Picard asked for a damage report on the Cube, so he could ascertain how bad off it was. After hearing they were having problems with the power grid (which would include their adaptive shields) he used his residual link to the Collective to overhear what they were saying. It was only after this he ordered them to target that one area.

Taken together, this means that Picard figured the damaged power grid might mean shield failure and then when he tapped into the Collective he overheard something that confirmed his suspicions and he also overheard exactly where the shields had failed and knew where the firepower should be concentrated.
