Really? So, how on earth does every Stanley Cup winning team go through typically 4 rounds of hell....play through injuries, battered, beaten to a pulp....to win the cup?

We were out-physicalled in both those series. The difference between round 1 and round 2 was that Price was clearly not as good against Philly. It's got nothing to do with coaching.

It was embarrassing watching some of our players get all frustrated, and give-up on plays to feel sorry for themselves because the refs weren't calling everything as they do during the regular season.

We need a Shane Doan-type player....and badly.
