Against the sharks this series however, the team has played the most undisciplined hockey I've ever seen. Offensive zone penalties, retaliatory ones etc. it's just an ugly way to play and you aren't going to win that way. Especially in playoffs.
That being said, this series easily could be 2-1 sharks with the lead lr 2-1 Canucks with the lead. Last game was a nightmare. You move on and adjust. All in all they haven't played all that bad. I'm not saying they're going to win the cup but I'd start Luongo next game and win one game at a time. Chicago came within one shot of winning 4 straight vs us in 2011. See no reason why a team with this much talent couldn't do the same.
I have been drinking all day so maybe this is just all BS but hey the sharks haven't won the series yet. I still have a little faith. Win a shift. Win a period. Win a game. Win one game. Then two. Then get momentum. And see what happens.
The fourth game is the hardest to win. I don't think the 3-0 lead is reflective of the series. The Sharks haven't dominated until the nightmare that was game 3, and the problems are ones that the Canucks can correct. Agreed 100% with the bolded, the Canucks need to play a disciplined game.
I agree, I also think there is enough talent in that room to string together a winning streak, we just need to see the execution. Come out hard, play smart, win game 4, and start to take back momentum like Chicago did to us. By the time game 6 rolled around in that series, the Canucks were completely on their heels and the Blackhawks had all the momentum.
Also, yes, start Luongo, you have to go with the goalie that has played better this series.
