3. Nobody knows if Begin "faked" anything. If he did, it is without question FAR outr of his character, though it appeared to us that he may have.

4. Thornton didnt try to hurt Begin, though it appeared at the time that he did.

5. Begin will try to do his best Madden job on Thornton.

6. I hope like heck that Lapointe isnt matched up with Begin...we need Marty in other situations than "policing" the opponents checking line forwards.

I agree on all points.

The only thing that I'd add is that Joe must be able to play through any distractions.

If the B's hope to advance, Joe (and several others) have to bring their "A" game
