Seriously, Backs looked like **** out there last game. He's obviously tired. He needs a damned rest and a thorough physical to see if there's any kind of injury he's concealing. Give him a game or two off and let Hackett take a hack at it.
Get it? Hack at it? Cause hes Hackett...
Dammit, don't try to be funny after just waking up, or you'll end up like me!
Yeah I get the sick feeling that we're going to **** the bed on this one. We never play well in Vancouver and we never had. Backstrom obviously needs to rest. Mental as much as physical. Vancouver will get some fluky goal and then pop in two more quick ones all in the first period and then Hackett will get the nod for the second and third. Bouchard will be invisible. The only bright spots will be the usual. Suter and Brodin will look heavenly again but that's about all. Parise will probably score, as will Cullen because they are solid. As much as I'd love it, I just don't see us winning in that building against this team two times in a row and I don't think we can win three in a row we're already 0-6 trying for three in a row this year. Hopefully they prove me wrong. But I predict a 4-2 final Vanny.
Have you considered, or do you have NHL game center live? I work the games so I use it to watch re-runs (of winning games, haha)
I just cancelled my GC subscription, mainly because I can't afford it this month. I'll maybe continue it next month though, but some Finns seem to have good luck with the streams, so I'll see the competition before shelling out almost 20€/month.
I think the current payment ends at 20th, so I should be able to watch tonight's game at least.
Yeo, "Well, we know he's looked pretty bad the last few games. Let in some softies and pretty much just thrown rebounds right to the other team. Hell! I had to ask Backs the other day, if he was getting kickbacks for every goal he lets in lately! Heh, I was joking of course... But yeah, we're going to go with Backs, because it's, uh, the best chance we got. Yeah."
Ah well. Backs at least looked good in teh third period of the last game... I'm hoping for more of that.
