Anyone Seen Staal?

from Eric Duhatschek of the Globe and Mail,
He is tied for the National Hockey League playoff scoring lead, so in the larger scheme of things, this post-season has been the coming-out party for the new face of the Carolina Hurricanes' franchise. But in the near term, the question on everyone's mind Sunday was: Why has Eric Staal-ed? Why has the only player currently active in the playoffs who finished in the top 30 of regular-season scoring suddenly gone cold? And if Staal can get it turned around – say as early as Monday's fourth game of the Stanley Cup final – does that mean doom for the back-from-the-dead Edmonton Oilers?
