Feels like a larger deficit than 2-3, but I'm with you I believe they have the ability to come back.
It's probably just the game that has me down tonight but they really look done. Not "done" like they don't care, or "done" like they're getting demolished by a better team, just "done" like they don't have enough left in the tank.
Probably not true, Nashville just played well tonight and shut them down. Just feels like the magic of coming back against the Oilers in game 5, sweeping the Flames, winning a game 7, tieing the Preds with an OT win... all that stuff has run out. Carlyle might have some magic left but I'm not sure.
I really expected a better game with Johansen out, I didn't think the Ducks would lose this game unless they beat themselves again. I guess Rakell and Gibson had to change that. They had a chance to really get that advantage but it just didn't happen. Magic ran out.
