What are your thoughts on this matchup? My recollection of the season series was that Vancity lost 3 and won 1. The one we won we played Sabourin. So maybe we should rest Luongo for the next round seeing Sabourin had the better record?? No way! I don't know why we won that one game, my guess is that it was during their injury problems. Pronger and S. Niedermayer both were probably out of the line-up. I'm not saying we can't beat a healthy Anaheim because the playoffs is a completely different animal than the season. There's just more to the games, more intensity, more purpose.
The matchup is scary. The only thing in our favor is the officiating. I feel Luongo is the better goaltender, but when you have an all star defensive crew like they have it makes up for it. i don't think we can play a hitting game, they're bigger. We will just have to always get on the board first and focus in on shutting their top line down. It may be a special team heavy series. Hopefully our last game is an indication that our power play has turned a corner and is on the rise. Anybody else have any thoughts?
