Not when a team loses 3 in a row and comes back from a road trip. It's a pretty indication they will be firing on all cylinders. There's no such thing as a certainty but odds are they will have more jump then us.

Whether we can counter this with our upside and grab control of the game early on is secondary debate.

Let's not forget this is the same team that beat boston on the road...as you can see, it's not just a question of adding up the talent and predicting a score. In the NHL anything can happen and to not include game importance, fatigue, motivation etc.. is equally as foolish as over emphasizing it.
