If Martin keeps preparing these guys to play, they will take care of business.
OMG, I cant believe that I am pumping Martin. Where was this during the regular season. Martin did something that I havent seen in a while. After Ryan White came back to the bench after his shift, JM grabbed him by the shoulders and talked to him for a few moments. Awesome job.
Martin is obviously using the regular season as a time to prepare exactly for this. Everything they work on during the season game in and game out, makes them a very strong playoff team.
Great win and such a clinic out there when it comes to road hockey!
Keys to game 2:
1. Great defense
2. Price was great
3. Timely goals
4. Blocked shots
5. High compete level (grinding out a win)
I think this team is much different than the one that let a 2-0 series lead slip away against Carolina. They are too smart and experienced to do that. They probably will go back to the Bell Centre and think they are down 0-2 rather than up 2-0. As well, the incentive will be there is simply make the Bruins pay next game by winning on home ice. Lastly, the Bruins are fragile mentally and this may be too much for them to come back from. Cant wait for Monday!
I dont think so. On Versus, they interviewed PK after the game. He was calm, called Lucic a world class player. Asked if he played a perfect game and PK said that he had a lot to improve upon. When asked about going home to Montreal, he said it was business as usual.
Very cool and calm. And very respectful. Awesome kid.
And................our Bulldogs take game 2.
I saw the same interview. Jacques Martin has this team focused. There will be no happiness and all business until mission is accomplished. PK's interview, while short, was perfectly awesome.
He always looks like an idiot. I am so glad that Jacques Martin and Kirk Muller and Perry Pearn just keep things cool. Guys that freak out like Torterella and Julien and all the other guys just look like idiots in the end. Hockey is a game of ups and downs and keeping things modest and nice and calm is always the best way to go. For all the people here that are worried about the players getting cocky and thinking they have already beaten Boston, come on, just look at how composed our guys were in Boston, complete class and heart, they have the eyes on a bigger prize. GO HABS GO!!!!!!!!!
