Mods: I should be able to spruce it up by about 3pm EST (I have a few errands to do first).
I hope the crowd will be ready, and that the 0-2 deficit and off the ice issues don't dampen anyone's enthusiasm.
I just want to win game 3, and then see what happens. If we go on to lose the series, so be it, but I just want to win today to make it 2-1, because then some of the pressure shifts to the Coyotes and sets up what should be a tremendously fun Friday night at Bridgestone, with us being just one win away from knotting the series.
Lose, and all hope is lost, and the enthusiasm will definitely not be the same come Friday.....
I can't wait to be in the Bridge tonight, well still technically tomorrow night. We need to rally around this team and we damn well know we can bring the noise. Halischuk should be back in the lineup, never should've been benched, and I think he adds a ton. We can NOT go down 0-3. We need to come out strong and take no mercy.
Also, this barebones gdt ain't getting it done. Glad to see that the OP is going to add more. We need something extra to help our mojo.
So much negativity the past few games with the game 2 performance and the AK and Rads stuff. The team and the fans need a positive. I'm hoping all this adversity the past few days bands the team together. We will see where that psyche is at here in about 19 hours.
I have a good feeling about tonight. We're gonna come out and play Predator hockey for the first time this series, and we're gonna win an ugly grinding game. **** Phoenix and **** Mike Smith! We've put 3 goals behind this dude twice already, tonight we'll tighten up defensively and squeak one out...bring it!
Great to hear. Interesting he's already coming out and going on the record with this.
They better have done something pretty bad to say this. If we lose tonight, it' doesn't matter, we'll be done for the season. Putting them back in the lineup will be hopeless desperation. I thought Radulov was dominant in game 1 vs Phx, just couldn't capitalize. He was also one of our best players vs DET. If he was out till 4am getting in bar fights, OK. If he was 30 min late on curfew...
I'll wait to pass judgment until what really happened comes out.
Honestly, I think Trotz is getting nervous and wants to go back to the "Predator way". Legwand and Klein still make those horrendous mistakes in game 2 without Ak and ARad in the lineup. Fisher and SK are still playing like poop offensively. Rinne is still not playing Rinne like. We have plenty of other problems to fix.
