Seems quite knee-jerk to suggest this is a problem.
Sample size is so small it is practically meaningless.
A team facing elimination should naturally be the more motivated team.
The Canucks did, in fact WIN 3/4 of those series. Not only that, they won each series with the other team facing elimination
It is what it is.
We were a very inexperienced playoff team coming into this year and the talk was all about our lack of killer instinct. The fact that the results are trending in a positive way is good and lets not kid ourselves, the team was in no shape to win the last two games vs Boston.
