Does "choking" mean they didn't score much, because they were never on the ice without the opposition's top checking-line, and at least one of their Norris-quality d-men on the ice? Not to mention, the Michelin Man between the pipes?
I don't recall Heatley and Spezza having lots of chances, that they whiffed on, or planted in the goalie's considerable midsection. I do recall them being covered like blankets, and always some body laying on the ice in front of them. That makes it tough.
