Right now the Canucks are frustrated by the Blues ability to block shots (they blocked 26 in game 3) and clog up the neutral zone. As a puck possession team, the 'Nucks haven't been able to penetrate the blueline when the Blues line up four across. Vancouver will have to do a better job with diagonal dump-ins and having the wide winger hitting the line with speed if they hope to recover more pucks deep. Right now Osgood and the last defender are simply getting too much time to handle the puck in the corner and chip it out off the glass or, worse yet, execute a planned breakout.
5 on 5 the Blues are killing the Canucks, and so Vancouver's only hope is that the powerplay gets going. Cloutier can only do so much to hold them in games...
I still have faith, though

Heh Wow, that Peca hit on Zdeno Chara looked familiar. Good thing the NHL uses that clipping penalty now, or else it may have gone unpunished. By the way, the Peca related whining from Islanders fans was old the week after the series ended.
