A hot goalie is a hot goalie...I said it before...if you actually play/played the game you might understand...I really do think the pressure is on LA now...win it at home...AV got us to game 7 of the Final last year and I have faith that they can do it again...although some losers think they are done...it's the playoffs baby....
Gotta admit though the Kings are hustling to the puck...defensively...we still have more talent....
I agree with my good cyber cousin Spidey.
The Kings aren't out of the wood yet and history has proven that coming back from 2-0 deficits isn't exact impossible. We of all people should know after the Cup Finals last year. Tampa came back from 3-1 down and beat Pitsburgh last year. Chicago, Detroit, and the Flyers won 3 straight games after being down 3-0 in their respective series.
In 1994 - we were down 3-1 to BOTH the Flames and Rangers and came back to tie it.
Maybe it's just me, but I thought that the Canucks outplayed the Kings tonight and just had a bit of bad luck on special teams. If the Canucks play the way they did in the end there however, then I can definitely see us coming back.
We are certainly down, but we are definitely not out.
I warned this message board about the consequences of the Canucks not giving it all during the latter course of the regular season (only playing to their maximum ability in select games), but it's all irrelevant now. The fact of the matter is that I DO think that the Canucks found their intensity tonight and that this series is still far from over.
In 2002, the Redwings were also a little "rusty" when they played us in round 1........due to not being used to playing meaningful games......but we saw what happened after that.
p.s._________________I also think starting Schneider is a bad idea. Luongo has been very good for us and benching him at this point, would be a huge slap in the face to him. Lou deserves better than that.
