Not saying they lost because they were out hit. To me it looked like we got pushed around A LOT. We need more guys who will push back, like Tootoo.
How many times did we see White, or Filppula, or even Hank simply get pushed from behind and knocked down and had the puck taken from them? It was sad.
They played slow and showed little awareness. Unfortunately this team has morphed into small skilled forwards who can't really skate.
The Blues DO NOT...and I repeat....DO NOT have more skill than the Red Wings. But the Predators set the blue print for overcoming a skill mismatch against the Wings: skate fast and hit hard.
Our guys need to play with more energy and speed. I'm just not sure if they are capable of doing that though....
