ok...so....it will now take a miracle performance from the goalie...like theo's game 6 in 02 + another ridiculous shot from Kovy (that's 2 now) + D corps playing like they did in game 1 (limiting chances at least) + fair reffing (if not calibrated to give as much advantage to us that they were given in the first two) + being able to convert on the PP without Markov
wow...I wish I were a fly on the wall at the meeting this afternoon
Hey, I can dream can't I? I doubt we see Lang in this round though, since he's been away much longer.
The guy has been in the league so long though, maybe he's used to it enough that he doesn't need that much practice to get back into it. He plays a cerebral game more than a speed/synchronism game anyway so maybe he can get right back in. Also it's not an injury that he can worsen if he comes back too soon. It was a freak thing so if it's fixed it is, and if he gets cut with a skate again well there's nothing anyone can do about that. Are there any precedents for players getting back in the playoffs without practicing much after being out so long?
