Agree, its not us. But when I watch other games, Ovi aside, I just see more passion for the game from players. Yet when the playoffs start, our guys start playing that way, or are expected to. Suddenly, they start clearing the crease. Ward and Carlson start hitting, out of no where.

So, they may have it in them. Like a dormant gene. I saw Flash crush a guy in the playoffs once.

The Zen philosopher Basha Huntsie once wrote, If you not aren't angry, you are not trying your hardest.

We need to just start throwing a few hits and it starts on defense.
