Nash needs to remember that he has other teammates on the ice. Far too often he tries to stickhandle through multiple defenders, or tries to carry the puck into the net instead of just shooting it when he gets a chance. How many times has he turned the puck over in this series?

If he's getting checked tighter, then he needs to use his teammates more, not less, as they should be more open.
