The series is really taking on a life of its own. In the series against Detroit, Nashville was allowing nothing but perimeter shots and bad angle chances. In this series, Phoenix has been capitalizing on odd man rushes and prime scoring opportunities. I remember this goal for instance....
Can you remember Detroit getting prime chances like this? I really can't.
Now you can blame that on Detroit not being hungry enough, but I look at how hard Nashville played that series. In this series, they appear to be on cruise control while Phoenix is fired up and ready to play.
You're right, I don't remember Detroit getting chances like this. But I think one of the biggest problems is, Phoenix has been shooting high on Rinne. The Wings would shoot from bad angles and always low. Rinne will always stop those low shots.
