Looks like it's time to blow the dust off the recordings of the finals, and to see how many beachballs Leighton let in. By my faulty memory, he let in several and failed to come up with momentum-changing saves, but the team D started to break down and with the third pairing still unable to contribute enough ice time for Pronger and Timonen to take two breaths and a swig of Gatorade on the bench, they were running on fumes. And I do remember the play of the Richards-Carter-Gagne line being an issue in the finals, with the caveat that Carter was playing through a broken foot.

If I were asked to assign blame for the loss, before having jogged my memory, I'd say 65% MFL, 25% a dead-tired top 4 D, and 10% play of the offense.
