Oreskovich and Alberts were somewhat non-factors and in hindsight with Salo going down, Ballard would have been a better guy to go in. But the Schneider switch seemed to give the Canucks some jump and made the Hawks a bit hesitant. Unfortunate he had some bad miscues with the puck, but overall I thought Schneider was quite good.
I agree with you, but where the hell were these changes in Game 5? Why take so long to adapt? I am an AV supporter, but after 3 years of this, I am getting a little frustrated.
