Because we had eek by wins against 2 pretty mediocre teams we were tired against a team that was the weakest cup finalist since the 06 Oilers. We got lucky last year and still couldn't capitalize. Still looked bad winning 2 series. Arguably outplayed in both.
People think we accomplished so much last year and to a very high degree we did; finishing 1st in the conference, getting to the ECF, etc. But when you look at it, we didn't have to play against Boston or Pittsburgh, two teams that I think would've given us fits. Thank god we played against opposing offenses that were just that, mediocre.
