I admit I'm a pessimist, but it's been 20 years since we've reached the final and we've got a lot of 1-and-outs along the way. It's hard to feel optimistic with our track record.
Spezza's already having issues, he was inactive last week. That might be a worse injury than Emelin, one that's recurring.

Boston's made a lot of changes from the team that went to two finals...pile of guys gone from the cup win and a bunch more from last year. They may end up being as good and they may not.
