No rational, sane person on earth would EVER take this 4 win streak for granted.
That being said, the danger is a slip up in their confidence. They really have to believe that they can pull this off. Winning definitely helps that, but it's just so fragile right now. If we drop one or two games against calgary this week or whatever, that may be too much to recover from.
Everyone might be nervous and jittery right now, and TBH it's just going to get more and more intense the more you win. This game doesnt give you anything, you have to take it. I believe the sense of humility is there, but it also needs a dose of confidence in our ability as a team to get the job done.
Great post, pretty much sums up my thoughts exactly. This is going to be a tough end to the season and no one can be taken lightly, the effort, finish, and luck has to always be there.
