The Bottom line

It is all about being tight to the end.

The Blackhawks, the Wild, and the Red Wing are all relatively soft teams, and only the Flyers should be tough to play against. They all find themselves in the bottom-third of the NHL hitting department, and with the Canucks bringing in Kenins and Pedan, Vancouver will look to hit the life out of the opposition.

Next: Hitting the Road Hamhuis-less

None of these games are going to be blow-outs, perhaps with an exception in the Chicago game. Lord knows what happens in the Madhouse. Be tight, be tough, be resilient.
