Reasons to be optimistic


I know that most of us are pretty down after last night's game.  However, there are a few reasons to be optimistic, as Chicago does still have to win 2 more games. 

 

1.  The Canucks really haven't challenged Niemi at all the last couple of games.  It's the Hawk defense (especially Seabrook and Keith) that are doing the job.  It's not like he's this amazingly hot goalie (ref:  Game 1).

 

2.  The Canucks defense has done a pretty good job on Kane, Sharp, Hossa and Toews.  What's killing us are the supporting cast.

 

3.  The passing has been awful the last couple of games...it was like watching pinball.  Part of this probably is that the Canucks are getting to far apart going up the ice.  This can be dealt with.

 

4.  Last night notwithstanding, Luongo has played a long stretch of good hockey.  Just because he had a bad game last game doesn't mean he's going to stink the rest of the way too.

 

Edit After Game 4:  Ummm...forget everything I just said.
