Ugh i was there for that infamous game three, what many point to as the beginning of the end (although I think it started back in '98 when Tik missed the open net). I hope to god they can put thi game behind the, and come out gunning tomorrow and win big. Given the scheduling, I'm sure neither team wanted to play much longer, not that they would have anyways but you know what I mean
No big surprise, but the Caps are heavily scouting the Bears.
Anyone else think the odds are better than 50/50 that Walton will replace Beninati for this season? OLN has Beninati working the conference finals. Engblom quit the Blue Jackets today, since OLN wants him full time for 2006-07. Just wondering...
I said something about Beninati and OLN a few weeks ago on some boards; I think there is a very good chance of that happening; interesting news about Engblom; not sure I see the Walton thing happening, although that would be sweet - seems to me he just started a new job, but perhaps this would be a big enough opportunity to not pass up???
I have not read the complete GDT yet; bummed about the loss, but glad I was there to see the game
Steckel and kudos to Flesichmann and Green, too. and the whole team for that matter, but credit goes to the Pirates for not packing it in when the score was 5-3. Congrats on the win JR and seeing at least a game 7. The guys are going to be exhausted today with the 6pm start. Hopefully, Cassivi can stand on his head to withstand what I expect will be a Pirates onslaught to start the game. And to state the obvious, the Bears need to stay out of the box.
Strange to see Koken sitting with McPhee at the game.
Getting ready to hit the road back to Hershey

Rumor going around AHLfans.net is that Steckel is done for the playoffs (knee). This is completely unverified, so grain of salt and all that.
That would be disastrous. I have to believe he would at least suit up and play whatever he could to give the bears a morale boost. He did come back out to play in OT though, so maybe its not quite so bad.
