interesting comments from Pekka Rinne on why they lost to the coyotes. They were so pleased with themselves after beating perhaps the weakest Red Wings team in the last 20 years
Rinne finds reasons for the playoff loss.
"We started thinking too highly of ourselves after the Detroit series that went so well. We couldn't keep our feet on the ground and everything fell apart. We panicked when we lost two away games."
Rinne says what happened with Radulov and Kostitsyn in the playoffs didn't have a big impact on the team.
"It didn't affect as much as media made it seem like. The way I see it, Radulov joining the team mid-season affected the atmosphere more than the incident that happened in the playoffs."
