Don't agree with the idea that Gabby was better in the POs than Nash though. He was just along for the ride on a lot of his points in the ECF run. Nash absolutely needs to be better, but he actually made a lot of plays happen during the POs. Whereas unless Gabby was scoring (which he didn't do enough of), he was invisible - and yes I know Gabby was injured; don't care. Overall they were both bleh.



Derek Stepan (18) -2 = (16)
Ryan McDonagh (16) +2 = (18)
Marc Staal (6)
I could almost forgive gabby because of injury and the goal to give us a 2-0 lead in R1G1 and give us confidence. His 3OT goal helps a lot. He had a couple of posts and didn't score on Marty. A healthy gabby certainly would have been better than Nash. An injured gabby clutched for us in R2G3. I guess I'm just disappointed with Nash overall.
