I can't remember the last time this team competed hard for the entire game. They need to give'r for a full 60 minutes tomorrow night.

It's been awhile that we dominated a full 60 minutes for sure.

Even in our wins against the Panthers and the Sens near the end of the season, we didn't dominate throughout the game and had some moments of letting go.

Unfortunately, I doubt the trend will be broken against Boston. The only thing we can hope for is to capitalize on our chances and not look like a pee-wee team when making passes.

I don't even need domination. Momentum will shift back and forth. I would just like to see 60 minutes of good, solid effort. Three full periods of consistent hockey, playing the system that was so successful early on.

Lately, it's been 10 minutes of solid defensive hockey, and then 10 minutes of pinching defensemen without support. Major brain farts all over the ice.

Keep it simple, stupid.

Maybe they have shaken off first game jitters and RC drove home the message that time to fool around is over?

If we limit the giveaways, this series is not as hard as people think. Just simple things and we can take them. I think the majority of the issue is mental. This will be a big test for RC as to how he handles their mindset, especially phil's

Completely forgot Leo my bad! Maybe a Komarov-McClement-Hamilton 4th line, though Orr and McLaren did provide some decent energy last game.

Kadri said, it is a very very winnable series. I hope he shows up for game 2, and backs up his talk.

Whatever line Orr is on can cycle. Its been consistent all season. When none of other lines can get anything going, his line goes out and at least gets offensive zone time.

Love it except Komarov over Hamilton and Orr instead of McLaren. This is a solid solid lineup. I don't understand how Carlyle doesn't see this!!

We're trying to be too fancy with the puck. Stop looking for highlight reel goals. Park in front of the net and get some dirty goals...

More pucks on net from every angle. I wish we could play half as good as the Blues did...they showed urgency against a team that has owned them for a little while.

Phaneuf-Gunnarsson
Liles-O'Bryne
Fraser-Franson (or Gardiner depending on how Franson is feeling about his foot)

I still kept Fraser in despite his poor game last time. He has been one of our most solid defenceman all season and I'm not going to take him out due to one poor game.

I like those lines except for Hamilton. Frattin needs to draw in.

If it's Lupul-Bozak-Kessel, at lest put JVR on Kadri's line. How is he going to produce with Komarov and Hamilton as linemates? Or put Frattin in instead of Hamilton.

I liked the Lupul-Kadri-Kulemin line. Why not stay with what we had during the season? Why fix what wasn't broken?

Fraser hasn't looked good for a couple of games...
