If only their players played desperately tonight, they might've finished up the series.
Cole looked pretty good to me though, it was exciting to hear he was back. Real good second shift he had too, asserting himself physically.
I thought he looked good physically, but i think like a lot of players with that type of layoff, he seemed out of synch offensively, which was true for every cane. Although very tough to judge him that way based on how the team played overall. He is still a beast, but the next game is a really test. Often the first game back guys play over there head do to adrenaline. If his body can respond, as well as the canes, they have a good shot Monday but big MO is not in their favour.
Your name won't be on the cup if you didn't play in the playoffs? I know that there's a rule for that but I'm not sure. Why didn't he play in game 5 then?
I think you either have to play half the games in regular season or 1 game in the playoffs to get your name on the cup. If Carolina should win, then he fulfils both criteria. Hopefully though, he still won't get his name on the cup this year
