we lacked on special teams, when we didn't get timely Penalty kills and timely goals on the PP.
we lacked size down the middle at center - which relates to point one.
we lacked discipline as noted by begin's penalty
but most of all i believe we lacked experience. this is and was a young and nervous team. you can't expect kovy and saku to carry an entire team. kovy was double teamed all series.
ps...judging from tonight we seemed to lack a cohesive defensive system. we had many many d-zone breakdowns..the kos jr give away on the breakaway to briere, the upshall tip in left ALL alone with 3 mins left in the game..
lack of experience and d-zone breakdowns over and over again
I disagree on the size down the middle. The centers did all right. The D men were not so solid. The point men on the power play were lousy.
