Certainly with Nashville. Cookie is entirely correct, they're only alive by bounces and bad goals, the Canucks have completely dominated 9/10ths of this series. The more Nashville can hang around, however, the more dangerous it becomes. Let's make sure we finish them in Nashville.
I'm not sure what the real problem is with the Sedins, but they HAVE to find a way to score. That's what good playoff players do. Some call it grit, going to the dirty areas more often, throwing pucks on the net, having that "extra gear".... whatever it is, the Sedins are proving they don't have it. Their cycle game isn't working to the degree it did during the regular season, they're missing passes, and passing up great shooting chances. The Sedins (-7) and Ehrhoff (-8) are 327, 328 and 331 out of 332 playoff players in terms of plus minus. I don't care how much you think that stat is relevant, that cannot happen. Not on a team that expects to advance, not to your biggest point-producing defenceman and supposedly two best players.
