We have to jump quick and do the same thing. Convert early. I think Tlusty had like 3 chances alone to put a puck in the net either to make it 1-0 or 1-1.

Can't expect a win. If we do, same result as Buffalo.
I do expect Kunitz-Malkin-Iginla to really gel quickly but more importantly we need the puck movers to kick start the offense.

If Letang dresses, our chances go up significantly in my mind. Letang and Despres dressing would be ideal. If not were looking at Fleury having to put the team on his back again.
