New York loses two games they should have won

They had to win game one, they outplay Carolina, and failed to do so with some help from the refs for Carolina, and were the better team. Game two they took only 12 shots, with none for the first sixteen minutes. Carolina had 110 shot attempts and outshot New York 19-1 in the third, and still New York had the lead with Carolina's goalie pulled. Tying goal/winning goal nine seconds later. ENG. 2-0 and all the excuses in place as to why they could have won the series but lost. Unreal, but hardly unexpected. First time in the teams history they lost a playoff game up 3-0. Ping pong Pageau returned, -3, no surprise.

Ultimately if they don't win this series these two games are where you have to look, they deserved one win, and despite being dominated were in position to win again, but failed. Roy's press conference was little more then two minutes. He failed to take his timeout, a goal was scored. We know what happenes when they win a bunch of games in a row, they lose a bunch of games in a row. Whether it be 4-5-6-7 this will be where they lost the series. It's bitterly disappointing but was expected because that's what this odd season has been since day one. Varlamov outplayed Andersen in game two, he had little help. Dobson got roasted like Stadium series in overtime on GWG. A high stick goal was disallowed for New York. For their 12 shots, Horvat also missed a breakaway.

Go prove everyone wrong. Only winning the series does that. Now they have plenty of excuses why they did not win.
