In one sense though those are the games I hate to lose ... we DID out work them and we DID out play them ... they scored a pp goal off of Mitchell's rear end and then decided to skate up the ice once more and its another goal ... bad puck luck I agree but.those are the type of games you just have to find a way to win in the playoffs ...
Overall I also like the effort the Nucks have put in the last few games however I would suggest that they are a little more careful with the dumb penalties. They had a few against Minny and even in the Edmonton game they took a few but were lucky the Oil didn't capitalize. Playoffs aren't as forgiving either IMO so it will be something that will need to be addressed sooner than later.
