They didn't play their best hockey and were ONE game away from winning it ALL!!!
SO the question is.. WHY didn't they play much better in the PLAYOFFS of all the situations??? Trying to DEFEND THEIR CUP NO LESS??? Eeesh! I'm trying to cut them a bit of slack here.. I am sure they were burned out from so much hockey over 2 seasons.... probably had injuries we don't know about.. but it did disturb me when they seemed to lack that intensity for some really important games!
I am starting to believe they got this idea that they could overcome ANY deficit.. doesn't work that way, boys! Well they certainly learned the hardest way ever, eh?
