Nobody compared Nashville to Edmonton.
In anycase the Yotes are definitely buying in. Anybody they throw over the boards believes. Thats a nice atmosphere to have when you have it. Its why the playoffs is special and you can never tell for sure what teams get on a roll.
Lets be clear about a thing here too. Yotes won this in 5 games. They outshot and outplayed Nashville in the only game they lost. Its not like the series was even all that close. Yotes did everything they wanted to in this series, applied their game to it from game one and never looked back. Preds were very guilty of not matching puck battle intensity in this series. Just look at the late icing call where Weber and Suter get beat to the puck by the lone Yote. Fairly symbolizes one team wanting it a hell of a lot more. The yotes one this series at their own blueline and they won that battle repeatedly in every game.
