This team talks the talk all season long but now I think they drank their own koolaid too much and just expected to win.
..it's like Canuck fans think there isn't another team out there or something.
We went to the finals last spring.
We won the Presidents trophy again.
Detroit has lost in the first round after finishing first overall.
The Pens are down 3-0 as well after being annointed future Cup champions by many NHL pundits.
Shit fricking happens man.
Detroit won the Cup 2 seasons after finishing first overall and losing in the first round. Largely with the same roster. They made it to the finals the next season as well - losing at home in game 7 after leading the series 3-2. No one loses in the finals like that, right?
Chicago is 5 seconds away from being down 3-0.
New Jersey blew a 3-0 lead to Florida.
Boston is averaging 2.0 G/G against a defensively weak team and a rookie goalie. (They will never win a Cup with those forwards, they don't shoot from the slot enough)
Detroit outshot Nashville 41-17 and lost 3-1. (but those shots are all from the outside. Babcock will never win a Cup coaching like that.. wait, what? He already did?)
Philadelphia has a 3-0 lead and their goalie has a .868 save %
Fleury was left in for 8 goals against (Bylsma will ever win a cup making decisions like that, wait a minute....what?)
Shit does indeed happen.
