as we all know quite well, predictions are baseless. Not saying it's not worth it for speculative purposes, just pointing out that all we can do at this point is wait for that puck to drop and see what happens. It's like a movie that has a 50% chance of a happy ending or the popcorn having some virulent bacterial contamination. And you really don't know until the end.
Bruins have never come back from 0-2
Bruins had also never won at the BC this year
We're great at guarding two-goal leads...until game 4
Road team has won every game (and in game 5s of tied series so far...now 2/2) and we've been a not so great road team until the playoffs
We have 5 cup winners
We couldn't hold a 1 goal lead with 6 mins left cuz it got lost in the skates of the latest one of those Cup winners
Thomas is winning the Vezina
Price not even considered
Refs give us PP with 2 mins to go, botched
Cammy misses a breakaway to ice game 4 after being Mr. Clutch last year
Gionta on for 4 GA (not his style)
I could go on. So many storylines, so many stats, so many stats that have meant nothing. Bad bounce, good bounce, who knows. After a few days of going through complete anguish (and I truly believe in this team), I've just come to terms with the fact that what will be will be. If doing it for Max wasn't enough, if doing it to defeat these cretins who have gone past the point of being CLEARLY team evil isn't, if Carey showing the doubters that he's the man even post-season isn't enough, if Gionta wanting to make his first year as captain count isn't enough, if PK rising to the occasion in the face of all the hate isn't enough, if flipping the script rather than the bird isn't enough, I dunno what is.
We just have a monumental end to this series and it's going to come down to heart, heart and a little bit of brains. I think of the guys leading this team and what they've accomplished, particularly last year and I want to believe that it will dictate the outcome. From what I've seen though, we just love to make it hard on ourselves. Then again...that's how we roll.
All my positive energy is being sent out to the team. Go Habs Go! I believe. Justify me.
