ATL's been alot tougher since Lehtonen's re-surfaced, but we got red-hot Ricky. it's gonna be a goalie battle and go into OT. after 17 missed shots each, Erskine scores, ala Malik, and i eventually fall asleep with a stupid grin on my face.
We need to stay out of the sin-bin otherwise we'll have to deal with Savard setting Kovy up for one-timers all night. We played a very disciplined game against the Devils, so lets hope that discipline carries over.
It's gonna be tough though. They have a great goaltender so I'm going to have to account for that in my prediction.
I'm more worried about Lehtonen than I am Kovalchuk. If this guy is on top of his game he will be tough to beat. Our defense is hit or miss right now and I'm thinking we need at LEAST 3 goals to win this game. Who knows though Ricky could stand on his head and that 3 could turn into a 1.
