They do, but logic would dictate otherwise in this scenario. The Rangers just haven't put up any semblance of a fight that would grant me optimism for a four game win streak.

Did we even have a 4 game win streak this year?

Screw logic. If we lose we lose. We have all year to think about how logic prevailed if we lose. But have fun with this. Have faith. Personally logic is telling me we can't do this. But **** it. I'm gonna have fun tonight and every other possible game we may play. AHL Bruins just blew their 3-0 lead last night. NHL Bruins blew a 3-1 series last round. You never know. Besides game 2 we've been leading all the way up until the 3rd period. We could potentially be up 2-1 in the series right now if Eminger doesn't take a penalty, and the craziest puck play doesn't occur on the goal line. What makes that even more surprising is that we've been playing like absolute dog **** and we've been in this series (technically). Add energy tonight, maybe we finally pick our **** up. Have faith.

I really don't want to be swept. Even if there's very little chance the Rangers win the series.

If we could just get it to 4-2 even.

If two teams are evenly matched, one has a 6.25% chance of winning four straight. I think evenly matched may be a bit generous, but not much.

Anything can happen.

So the bruins have been in that 6.25% thus far... i'm sure if we pick up our play we can too.

Well the Bruins have only won 3 games so far. The probability of one team going up 3-0 is 12.5%.

Flip a coin 100 times. However many times it lands on the edge and remains upright is the %.

This team coming back from 3-0 would not surprise me.

They are maddeningly inconsistent.

I don't get why Hamrlik is playing?? Why not test McIlrath to see if he is ready...other teams not afraid to play rookies in the playoffs.

for those like me who favor change in coaching/system, a good old fashioned drubbing would be the path of less resistance. Unless we're going to win the series, best not to win any games at all.

I'm shocked Gilroy isn't in for the mobility factor. Hamrlik is slow....

Krug + Bartowski + Hamilton all offensive defensemen. McIlrath is a stay at home defensive defenseman. Teams willing to substitute defensive lapses for offense, not substitute defensive lapses for nothing.
