That's what I thought would happen, but who knew the Canucks' power play would go from 28% to 4%. I mean, I understand better goalie and all that, but that's just crazy. And that's why they play the game, etc etc. You can't forget that Luongo always does this, too -- flat out disappears for stretches at a time.
Of course, neither team is all skill or all goon ...
