They were -4 (each, not in total) in game 7 of the finals, so you can watch that game as an example (I still can't watch it).
So, which of the goals in that game were their fault? The puck bouncing off the stanchion right to Bergeron for a breakaway is pretty unlucky, no? Anytime a players on ice save percentage is that out of whack with the rest of the team, it stands to reason that there was some luck involved.

The Sedins aren't great defensive players anymore, they trade chances way more than they did early in their career's, but they were also unlucky. Luongo let in three goals from behind the net against Nashvile, for example, and played lights out the rest of the time. The Sedins were on for the goals he let in from behind the net, while the rest of the team got outstanding goaltending. That **** happens.
