Hey guys, I havent posted in a couple of months but I wanted to throw something on the boards real quick.
I moved to Kentucky in January, so everytime that the Ads have come to Cincinnati, I went up to see them. And I have seen them soundly handled, only scoring once in three games.
This last game really showed me that Cincy and Milwaukee were playing two totally different games. The Ads looked like a group of free-wheelers and the team play was horrible, no passing, so setting each other up, etc. On the other hand, The Ducks play a great team game and it just seems that they maintain total control over the feel and tone of the game every time that Milwaukee comes to town.
Why do you think that the Ducks dominate the pace of the game, and is there concern that the Ads will have to battle them to make it out of the first round?
Cincinatti is 3-1 in 1 goal games vs Milwaukee; Cincinatti is 2-2 in games decided by 3 or more goals ... taking that all into consideration, I believe this is going to be a close series ... probably 6 if not 7 games and either team could come out with the series victory.
Cincannati owned the Admirals last year too...then in the playoffs went up 3 games to 2 on them,before the Admirals came back to win...toughtest series by far the Admirals had in the playoffs,Cassivi seems to just flat out have their number some nights...the key to the early Admiral victories over them this year was the pp(two games they scored 3 pp goals against them)...Admirals scored 10 pp goals against them,half of their total overall goals against Cassivi this year...no coincidence that once the Admirals pp started struggling about 3/4 of the way thru the year,that the Admirals really struggled against this team...in my mind that might well be the key to the series..the Admiral powerplay

the pp did look pretty bad, even the 5 on 3 was really weak. Here's to hoping that it gets better real soon!
