Bottom line is, it is what it is. Bad calls are going to happen. Championship teams don't lose series based on one bad call.

The door of doubt may be open again, but to be honest, I don't get that feeling. Maybe it's because we have been through this so many times in VAncouver that we are desensitized to it......or maybe it's just plain experience......but there does not seem to be the angst in VAncouver there was in the Chicago series.

Now then.....if the Predators come out and spank the Canucks tomorrow - that may all change.
Yeah all valid points
But you have to look at the key signs in the series.
Luongo is was the first goalie to break in the tug of war
the karma goals are going the Predators way...ex Suter goal in game 2 and Legwand goal in game 5
We lost a key player in Smithson and now you've lost Samuelson
We've figured out Luongo and his weaknesses and Rinne is still playing stellar
Your D is tired and made key turnovers that led to goals in game 5
You said that Vancouver has been through this many times but that was with Chicago and they had to win 4 games to win the series
When you let off your foot off the gas pedal bad things happens
