Haha, I was just explaining the playoff OT rules to my 9 year old daughter, a burgeoning hockey fan. Anyways, the theme seems to be: So Effing PumPEd!!!! Whoooooooo!!! LGR
I concur. Man, it is going to be intense. That pit/Philly game was raw! They were dropping the hammer big time on each other. So glad the ice chikkens lost. Could never imagine rooting for Philly , but the addition of jagr , plus the exit of carter and Richards , makes them at least watchable...
The puck can't drop fast enough on this series! I believe we dispatch the Sens a little easier than we expect. I don't think they can handle our forechecking and physicality over a whole series. They have two good lines, and great team speed, but this will be a battle we are built for . I think Neil is hurt, no? He took a nasty spill in practice, so if he is playing we shoul go after him. Neutralizing their most physical forward would be huge.
So here in Europe the day has come.... Since we're kick starting the Thursday 6 hours ahead. And I got to be honest, I am asking the question if we're ready?
By looking at the highlights from the other games just now I only have one thing to say... Wow! The high paced intensity those games had.. I can't recall us fitting into that style (not on a regular basis anyways). I hope we have that extra gear and I hope we bring it tonight.
