Nabakov was atrocious, but they controlled play most of the series. Their top 3 defenders Visnovsky, Hamonic and MacDonald were awesome. Their bottom 6 was great and their top 6 was great too. Nabakov and an incompetent bottom end of defense killed them.

Ottawa will beat that team, Anderson is a top 5 goalie and their defense is top 10 in the league. I worry about Karlsson's lack of explosiveness however.
