I agree that they dominated; I suppose what I'm saying is that we expect
them to dominate (I probably didn't word my comment properly; shouldn't try this at work). Extraordinary compared to the average player; but for the Sedins - just another night at the office. Certainly wasn't meaning to take away from their performance.

I'll give you that one - he was probably the best player on the ice; still, though, he's been having his best year as a Canuck and has really upped his game in the playoffs. So, it didn't seem as surprising to me.
I guess that's the thing - as Canuck fans, we're used to our team and its players having to either surprise or play above their heads to win and go deep in the playoffs. That they don't seem to have to this year is confusing, but in a good way.
