This is surprise for sure the way things are going but look at the Ducks series against the Wings.

Perry 0 goals- 7 games
Selanne 1 goal (scored in the first game)
Ryan 2 goals
Getzlaf 3 goals (decent)

That's only 6 goals scored by their top 4 forwards in 7 games. What kept them in the series and allowed them to have 2-1 and 3-2 series leads was their depth.

Palmeri 3 goals
Etam 3 goals
Bonino 3 goals

Those 3 guys outscored their top four 9-6. The Ducks almost won that series based on their depth alone.

With the Hawks through 3 games were getting nothing major from our top 4 and nothing from the 3rd and 4th lines.

Toews 0 goals
Kane 2 goals
Hossa 1 goal
Sharp 1 (EN)
Oduya and Kruger with the other two.

My point is Toews might not score in this series and Sharp, Hossa and Kane at times are somewhat negated.

Bickell, Stalberg, Shaw, Bolland we need these guys to step up. The Wings are not dominating us they're just doing everything right to get under our skin, frustrating our stars and getting timely goals. The shot totals are actually misleading on our part cuz there's barely any quality scoring chances after game 1.
