Could not agree more. How many times have we seen this team ahead by one goal late in a game, pinned in the defensive zone with extremely tired players diving in front of shots hoping to get the puck deflected up into the netting so that we can change lines? Tonight they played defense by eating up the clock in the offensive zone. The coaching staff had a real breakthrough in preparing for game 7. They killed it in both tactics and motivation.
