This answer is the most correct. Sedins couldn't pick their spots on Rinne which is why they weren't scoring. It's also why they can't score in the playoffs against any other top 10 goalie in the league. They have next to nothing to give in the hard shot category.
If they go through another rough go in the playoffs again, you'd have to at least consider putting them on the second line in the playoffs. The only goalies they've lit up in their playoff career are Niemi and Quick.
