It just is a coincidence that after losing both, they now resemble game to game more the Gomez era?
That team's suffocating defense is completely overblown. When Lundqvist and Biron had an off month and a half 2.7 goals against in that March and April (till the playoffs). Lundqvist is having an off year (even his biggest supporters agree) and the team since their horrible start when the goaltending was bad and the defense was worse but clearly is not representative of the team now has given up 1.85 goals per game. That team's suffocating defense was a myth. More like some of the best goaltending ever.
