That's the attitude Doc! If I'm not mistaken, only one poster predicted that the Canucks would win in 4 straight. Therefore, why the panic? The one guy that predicted a sweep isn't even one of the panicky.

I fully expected to be going home to play again. In fact, I predicted 6 games, so I wouldn't be surprized to lose another one.
I hope not though ... that Chelsea Dagger really was getting to me last night. Don't want to hear that song again.

I'm not in panic mode and realize that it was just one game out of a possible 7.

Still, I'm shocked that this team took the night off. What was their mindset? Did they honestly think they could coast through this game and win? If they use the same game plan on Thursday, panic might set in.

I'm predicting if we don't take it on Thurs we'll lose the series. If Chicago takes another there's no way we win again in their barn. Coming back here w/ the momentum of 3 straight victories for the Hawks will be too much for the boys to withstand. We need to wrap this up Thurs. I don't like the idea of a one game takes all against those whiners.

Hopefully that mighty fine beatdown Bieksa laid on Stalberg ignites the troops.

I can't stand the premeditated dedicated goon fights one bit but this one was called for and Stalberg reaped what he sowed.

I don't care what we do thursday as long as we play well and play our game. We play as well as we can for three games (if need be) there is NO WAY Chicago wins all three. We can play well and still lose. That is how hockey works. (Of course we can play poorly and get shellacked, and that is what happened last night...).

But have we still have game 7 at home. I'm pretty comfortable with this in the first round. :mrgreen:

From Practice: Coach V gave Luongo, H.Sedin and Edler the day off, they'll all play in Game 5. Luongo is "100%"

Lu should have been given the *entire* 3rd period off last game as well.

Did he give the Sedin's and Luongo the night off in Chicago too?

Its something called momentum. We'll see how the guys respond to a major push back.

No coincidence at all... Sedin line was the worst on the Canucks.. Bolland line best on the Hawks..
Swedes let in the most goals 5 on 5..
Box score tells it all.. H Sedin a -4 D Sedin -3 Samuelsson -3..
in contrast Kesler line of Higgins Raymond and Kesler were 0
both lines about the same for ice time 5 on 5..
Bolland line . all +4..

basically we had a complete swedish failure . !! even Edler ended up -3 ..
