One thing very noticeable in these playoffs is the fact, we have not changed our game one bit.
We have been playing playoff hockey all year. Not so with other teams. They are playing better than they did during the regular season.
This is gonna be a tough series for us. And it could be a short one if we are not careful. They have a hot goalie, good D, and some offensive punch. Sound familiar?
Tort's said about the past series against Ottawa that it wasn't about outworking the other team, it was about scoring key goals at key times. That might be true in that series, but it's imperative we out work the Caps if we are to have any chance.
a) Do you not remember March/April? b) Lundqvist had a 1.70 GAA and .945 save % playing against the #4 offense in the NHL. He had a 1.97 (or 1.95 I forget) GAA and .930 against teams that included the worst teams in the league, during the regular season.
