Have Sloan or Clark take a career ending run at Kunitz when the game is out of reach for either them or us.

I'm worried about our D pinching too much on offense. Weve been giving up way too many odd man rush's against them and didn't improve after game 1 on that. That's the most I've seen us on our heels in that situation all year.

I understand many of the "problems" were having is quite simply due to the fact that the other team is also very good. You can't look as invincible against them as you could against the Lightning this year. It's always funny to hear fans worry (myself included) if there is something wrong with their team when the other team is probably asking the same thing. Thats what tends to happen when two good teams play each other.
