The losses of Dan Hamhuis, in particular, and Aaron Rome have turned Vancouver’s defence into cottage cheese.
Let’s list the goats:
Alexander Edler on Rich Peverely’s goal.
Sami Salo against Michael Ryder.
Keith Ballard on Brad Marchand.
Then Kevin Bieksa, who’s better than the aforementioned, went for a big third-period hit and was out of the play on Peverley’s second goal.
OK, this may be a stretch but the Canadiens looked better in taking Boston to OT of a seventh game than the Canucks have looked through four games of the final.
And Carey Price is the only goaltender Boston hasn’t chased.
Tim Thomas is a wall and Roberto Luongo is a sieve.
How good is Thomas? Boston is 11-4 when outshot in the playoffs.
How bad is Lou?
12 GA is less than 120 minutes in Boston.
The Sedins? look for them on milk cartons at a depanneur near you.
And once again, the game ended with all kinds of nonsense during Garbage Time.
It will be a long Thursday flight home to Van.
And Alain Vigneault has work to do.
