curious to know if Habs come out like gang busters and use the crowd's energy or TB comes out playing desperate. If Habs feed off the frenzy and get a couple of early goals, it might very well be curtains for TB
im more nervous for the home games than the road one for sure
I don't think the fact that we're at home matters. We have pretty much the same record this season at home and on the road. I think the team will feed off the energy. However, if Lightning take the lead and quiet the crowd, that could be rough.
We've also shown that we don't give up, we can make comebacks.
The only thing that worries me is with what emotion and drive our boys go on the ice. Then how they would react to the Lightning desperately wanting to go full force.
I think we can win it. I'm just hoping our Habs go through this roaring rather than being complacent.
Bolts no longer have pressure of pleasing the home crowd. Palat also has been an annoyingly effective contributor for them, and adds spice to the offense. There's going to be storm from them at the start. If the Habs team is matured from last year, they'll be able to take this game. If they don't, Bolts certainly could take this one. Hopefully they'll continue to roll with Lindback.
We have the same odds of sweeping as Tampa has chances of coming back to make it 2-2. Just to make it clear though, jinx's aren't real and this years team is not the team from any of the previous 2-0 blown leads everyone keeps mentioning. It's all irrelevant.
