from Jason Botchford of the Vancouver Province,
You know the story—they’re too soft.
But these “soft” Swedes have had their most success during the past three seasons against the Calgary Flames, one of the West’s toughest teams who don’t actually swing battle maces, but some nights they can leave opponents feeling like they did.
In the past 18 games against Calgary, the Sedins have combined for 49 points (23 for Henrik and 26 for Daniel). They say bring it on. “We don’t get scared if people try to play us hard; we actually like it,” Henrik Sedin said. “The Flames try to hit us as much as they can, and that actually opens up room behind the defence. “We like that, we like it when teams play that way, because it seems to get us to play our best games. There’s always a lot of hitting, and they are always physical games.”
