Maybe we can find excuses , ie Giroux was hurt, Jagr was old etc, but what of Hartnell, Simmonds, Voracek, Couts, Schenn, Read, Talbot? Were they all injured or elderly?

No. They had no heart.

e shoulda had enough ffensive depth to crush Devils. Or at least, not lose in 5 games.

Scoring lotsa goals in reg season means little if you disappear when it counts,
Their hearts didn't disappear between rounds. NJ was phenomenal, and they hadn't been checked like that alll year, outside of maybe one game against the Blues. They were not a veteran group and couldn't adjust. Teams without guts dont come back how they did all year.
