A cakewalk? Correct me if I'm wrong, but at least last season the Avs found strange ways to lose against the Canucks despite being the faster, better team for the most part.
A lot of times we had the edge in goaltending or just pure luck.
That first period Avs vs. Sharks was scary to watch from a Canucks perspective. They are speedy, they are willing to work, and they adjust their game well to the opposition.
Kings did a good job taking away time and space. The Avs showed they are capable of doing exactly that as well. We should consider ourselves extremely lucky that they're missing key players. This is no gimme by any means.
Though I see baby steps in the right direction by the Canucks, they still don't look like they're feeling good about themselves, which worries me the most. I don't know how many more games they need to actually start clicking, but they are definitely not there yet.
