While Ryan Kesler displayed one of the most impactful performances by a player in one series in NHL history, the rest of his star teammates were largely MIA. Although Roberto Luongo's numbers weren't bad by any means against the Nashville Predators, he allowed a couple of bad bank shots from behind the net and looked uncomfortable at times. More of a concern however was the ineffective play of the Sedin twins. Daniel and Henrik combined for just seven points, while going up against the Predators' all-star defensive duo of Shea Weber and Ryan Suter, and had high minus ratings. Rumours began to circle about Henrik fighting off an injury bug too.
