Pretty much. We were simply outplayed by a team who's record was 1-4 and they didn't want to go down a drain and come back up. They know they are better than that and they clicked in all cylinders, it's what a veteran team with players who know what happens when the chips are down against a young team who's learning how to play when they have the momentum on their side.

Tell me one with recent times, tell me if a guy like Perry, Getzlaf, Kovalchuk, Parise, Suter and so would sign with a team that's been missing the playoffs.
