4-1 Phoenix with 10 minutes left.
With 2 minutes left in the 2nd Dallas was down just 2-1. However Mattias Norstrom, being the human pylon that he is, allowed Niko Kapanen to skate right around him to pick up a rebound. Since when is Niko Kapanen a net crasher? Keep him contained and put him on his ass Norstrom. I thought his reputation was as a solid defender and hitter?
Phoenix upped the ante again early in the 3rd with a shorthanded breakaway goal after Daniel Carcillo took an unnecessary run at Matt Niskanen. Some response eh? I suppose things like this will happen when you are telling your whole roster to take more chances, but a shorthanded breakaway and allowing Niko Kapanen to crash your net against your currently most established defender is unnacceptable if you want to win a cup.
