I actually can't decide who would be better between Spacek, Weber and Mara

Spacek has sucked the last two games, but when he's on he helps our transition game a lot

Mara will get those a-holes out of our crease and take no prisoners, but he might not have the stickwork that has been the key to success (getting in passing lanes, blocking shots, stick checking, etc.)

Weber played terrific in game 2 in his role as FWD (not defence) and we badly need him on the PP, but we're not taking any forwards out at this point since we're already missing Benny from the lineup. On defence, hard to say if he'd be adequate physically. He's come a long way since the last series he was in against the Bruins (scored a goal in that one to), and I'm leaning towards he IS capable if Spacek is. Hard call, but I highly doubt Martin pulls a veteran out for Weber. Weber is for the future (in his mind).

What we need:

Spacek to play mistake free and solid hockey. It's our only hope. He's done it before. All we can do is hope.
