many F's have looked subpar to me, other than zetterberg, so i would not be surprised who is injured, other than zetterberg and a couple of others like tatar.
datsyuk's skating has looked to me sort of like it did last season after his knee injury. not as bad, but he has not had much speed and has not been aggressive. late last game, he easily could have had a puck on the end boards in offensive zone, but did not get it. may have been trying to avoid a hit, but it was strange.
that happened in '07 series, but it did not decide a series. i think it was in game 2, which anaheim won in OT.
cleary's goal should not have been the deciding goal, anyway, b/c anaheim scored a PP goal after pronger crosschecked hudler into hiller, resulting in a BS penalty to hudler for goalie interference.
i am more bitter '07 WCF than almost any other. also still bitter about osgood's play in '96 WCF.
I still can't watch the '09 Game 7 because of the 2 Talbot goals. I was too young to remember '96 but if it's anything like '09 I can imagine the pain.
