Werd. That was the team philosophy last season & this season. The problem with that? is that regular season affords you an 82 game margin for correction.

Why it sucks in the playoffs? you only have a 3 game margin of error with the 4th one being your nail in your coffin. That's great coaching and great philosophy for the regular season but it's showing how it's counter-intuitive for a play-off environment.

I mean, just look at the 1st round last year against Chicago. We were up 3 - 0 and we almost lost that series if not for Hjalmmerson (IIRC) give-away to Burrows.

Same things with the LA series so far.

A playoff series is all about making game-to-game adjustments...LA learned our game and came prepared for game 1...We should have made major adjustments for game 2 but failed to do so...Game 3 will say a lot about how good or bad of a coach AV truly is.

Boston ties it up; probably looking at another OT.

Technically the Kings are a 3rd seeded team but close 1-0 losses costed them of it.

All season the long the Kings offense had been slumping and went dry. The worse case scenario for the Canucks was the Kings' offense finally "waking" up and it DID. Adding the fact of Quick's solid goaltending doesn't help either.

It's been 'awake' since the trade deadline when they acquired Jeff Carter....

Exactly. What were they, 12-4-3 or something like that after the deadline? Averaging 3 goals a game? The Kings weren't a team to take lightly...some of the fans around me at work were saying first-round is a given and they just looked at who they might face in the second round.

I shudder at the thought of the Kings forcheck which has been forcing Luongo to play the puck a lot.
As much as Luongo is not that great with puckhandling........just imagine Corey who is a lot worse.

Defence communication has to be better in gm 3.

When you have Edler and Bieksa not playing the way they suppose to, we have a problem.

The defence takes too long to move the puck out. They are unable to pinch as well as they can. It leads to our lack of offence.

I wouldn't be surprised if AV puts in Alberts to put some size in tomorrow.

It's true what some people say about the NHL playoffs. Impact players make a name for themselves in the post season.

Who would have thought that 22 year old Holtby would be outplaying Thomas in this series? Impressive 43 save performance in game 2.

Capitals showed heart in the victory by blocking shots, forechecking hard, all the attention to the details needed to win.

Anybody have this Holtby goalie in a hockey pool?

The OT goal let in by Holtby in the first game was a softie lol aside from the 30+ saves; in todays game Thomas made many key saves in OT/OT2 to keep the Bruins in the game

Holtby's lucky that he had defensive support when he let huuge rebounds bounce of his pads but other than that.. really impressive and solid for first and second playoff games of his career.

Carkner will definitely be suspended...Those might as well have been sucker punches he was throwing...caught Boyle completely off guard; had Boyle pinned to the glass, then Carkner shook off his gloves, and while Boyle's hands were down he must've landed AT LEAST 3 punches to Boyle's face...I have no idea why Dubinsky got tossed, but I'm sure the Sens will be more than happy to take that trade-off...

Noir made alot of good points. So much fail last night. Don't think kings beat us as much as we beat ourselves. Some bandwagoner friends have already jumped off in our group.

I still have faith adjustment will be made to improve our play. It also would not surprise me if AV put Schneids in to change things up.

Fuck Boston...
If the Lions can go 0-5, and then win the GreyCup, the canucks can win 2 gmes
I dont give a fuck if its different..its about buying into the system and effort
the urgency and willingness to win

Theres no more "correct" way to play the game. Its the willingness to "win" the game

Difference is that the Lions played to win.

Canucks played to lose.
