Maybe. One might hypothesize blueline issues in the case of Detroit and Vancouver, given their significant changes on D - and in both cases the goaltender was eventually pulled. And while I didn't see the whole games, going from highlights Ward and Pavelec were... not exactly lighting the world on fire. Quick sounded like he was way off his game today (ask BFC about that one; he and I split the LA/CHI and PHI/PIT games and texted eachother updates).

I assume this isn't going to be the norm, at least. (Although in the case of Detroit I really, really hope it is. )
