Therrien has coached his life out to get a 15th place team to turn it around and believe that they could win. I think clinching so early has caused our guys to feel maybe a little elite but toronto and philly took that away. I hope they play to win tonight and make us forget the last two games.
It's tricky. Maybe they should be totally self-regulating, but no group is. Yeah, these guys are pros, but professionals of all ages and businesses get psyched out. Nothing you can do to stop it. I mean, can you think of another reason why the same team that was beating everyone for 40 games suddenly morphed into timid, disorganized mice with a head-case goalie?
