It wasn't like the Phoenix roll-over we saw when Detroit manhandled them in 2011. That was
Five games is running out of gas? The preds had to do the bare minimum to win.
There wasn't a single moment where I believed the wings would come back because their offense was so pathetic and the preds defense barely had to do anything to stop it. Preds were getting Atleast one goal a game that was a result of a massive defensive breakdown. Wings only goal that counts toward that is datsyuk stealing the puck and putting it in the net before Rinne realized that happened.
