Oh I'm not saying it wasn't deserved or understandable given the circumstances.

Hopefully it pans out well for us, but I'm completely expecting it not to.. As others have said this pretty much the definition of a trap game.

We'll know in the first 5 minutes of this game if this team is ready take care of business tonight or if they expect an easy game. We have to take control of this game early and choke the life out of this weak Isles team by taking a lead.

The Islanders are horrific 5 on 5, 3rd worst in the league in GF/GA ratio. There's no reason to lose to them at home if we play one of our solid games - unless Tavares turns into superman, which he can do obviously.

I'm sure MT has been working on a pregame speech on this specific topic.

They'll be ready.

To his credit, I think he probably does too. I don't say that lightly either because frankly under MT I've never been as confident regarding our coaching staff. I liked him as a coach 10 years ago, and I think his time away and his subsequent time spent in the media the past couple of seasons has really seasoned him into a better human being and coach that can now truly understand the game from just about every possible aspect.

If someone like yourself says "MT probably has a speech about this" I can safely nod and say "yeah you're probably right". Where as with Jacques Martin I would have been surprised if the guy even went in the dressing room before games. MT is definitely a much stronger presence in the room, and a clearly superior motivator.

Games like this scare me, specially after a 5 games win streak.

Old Dutch BBQ is awesome.

A win tonight is definitely important with a good Rangers team coming to town on Saturday. In Price I trust.

MT's speech will probably be comparable to this:

''Are we satisfied with 5 wins? Or are we ****ing winners?''

Old Dutch bought Humpty Dumpty but replaced some of their main flavors with their own. Old Dutch was prevalent in Western Canada while Humpty Dumpty in eastern and then got bought out.


Not that it really matters

I'm picturing Therrien flipping through a well-thumbed book, about
the size of a phonebook. " Esti, where dat what Scotty said, playing

5 game streak going to 6. Don't stop now!



Helps now that our team is rested. Besides, we have to win this for when we're on the road for a long while, in a few weeks. That's going to be real tough.

We can do it!

Can any of you guys remember if Galchenyuk has been on the ice for an ES goal against yet? I can't seem to remember it happening.

I cannot remember the play, but he was a -1 in the 1-5 loss against Ottawa.
