our shots were constantly being blocked or missing wide all series. majority of our SOGs were of poor quality. if you are really comparing our 33 SOGs to LAs 40 SOGs, I can't help you. LAs forwards were consistently moving and getting great scoring chance.

we had hornqvist doing that and missing everything. of course bourque, too. radulov created chances as well but dancing around with the puck aimlessly will only go so far.

I think we'll all see as this series goes on just how weak our forwards were come crunch time. we made phoenix look like the devils pre-lockout.
