It's time to admit that LA is playing better than we do !!
They outplayed us in special team both PK and PP !!
They are more relax and confident, and let the play come to them, but we are forcing the issue !! nervous at times. That's why we struggled, we are trying to make the perfect play everytime on PP, too cute on the puck !!
The pressure from everyone got to us, and thinking 1 vs 8, easy series, we are a better team, blah blah....blah.....
Time to wake up !! we are down 0-2, now we become the underdog !! People will start to write us off !!
Pressure is starting to shift to LA whether they are able to close out the series !!
Remember 2001-2002, Van - Det series, we are up 2-0 to higher seed Det, we won both game on the road, but then Det woke up and won 4 in a row !! They evenutally went on to win the Stanley Cup that year !!
Coud be the same situation here, now what we need to do is one period at a time, one game at a time ! Give yourelf the confident back !
Pressure is fading and I am sure nothing but help us to raise our game at least back to where we are capable to. Keep focusing, cut down the turnovers, play our own game !! Forget about who is not in the lineup or what ever trade that we made, just play Vancouver brand of hockey !!
Maybe 1 lucky bounce or 1 fluke play could turn the series around. Remember Lidstrom's goal on Coutier ??
I have faith , we will get back to the series and go on !!
