Sutter calling his team the underdog team now is hilarious as well. Sounds like he's going down his checklist. With some luck the players will feed off of his panic cause NJ had over 100 points in the regular season.
I have to agree. They were the Underdog against Vancouver and traded that title for Favorites about halfway through the Blues series. I don't think it bodes well for LA that Sutter is falling back on the underdog moniker at this point, not only because almost all the 'experts' picked them to win, but because they still are going home leading the series with a chance to win. I get that he wants to deflect pressure and get his team feeling good, but this one has too much potential to backfire I would think.
