    Last night was just brutal.

    Hopefully, lesson learned. The team cannot sit back like that. There’s no way they can expect to win a playoff game in which Hordy is the only guy scoring. They’ve got to take the game to the Canucks. This series was 2 minutes away from effectively being over.

    Game 5 is going to be crazy.

  5. After game 3, I thought for sure they’d learnt their lesson. *sigh*

    I think Botchford said it best in his Province piece this morning – it was a game only 2007 could love. And the Canucks didn’t make it out of the second round either.

    I actually don’t know why they chose to play the way they did because, unlike 2007, they have some good depth in the lineup this time around.

    Here’s hoping for a better Game 5.

    first of last night was disspointing, but not as heart breaking as the game again SJ back in Jan! I think they were testing how far they would go with this style… i think the major problem were the forwards were simply not sharp! Having said all that no one expected it to be a 3 – 1 series lead… they did their job and took one game from Chicago!

    Now they have home ice advantage and i’m leaning towards them winning! because with that syle of game the hawks barely beat them, And in the playoffs there is no such thing as momentum, momentum is created during the game at hand!

    Bottom line they won’t beat Luongo twice in a row and i doubt he’ll go 1-2 for the remainder of the series…
