We hit our posts in game 1.
That game was un-fucking-believable! I'm not so sure that AV would be upset at the end-to-end rushes, all they proved is that the Canucks can maintain that kind of level, whereas the Blows could only mount sporadic pressure. It became clear early on that the Canucks are a better, deeper, more skilled team.
I liked the strategy shift to high-pressure checking. St Louis' defense is brutal, and the more pressure we put on them the more they crumble. Keep the puck out of the hands of their talented forwards and we'll be just fine.
