I personally would love this to be decided by 1 or 2 goals. Why?
This series is already voted the best series of ALL TIME according to NHL.com. Statistically, if the margin of victory tonight is 1 or 2 goals, it is also statistically the absolute closest series in NHL history.
I don't know if I can handle another overtime game (really I have a heart condition). Last game made me chuck my remote out of my living room window 2 floors up. I think the Pens need to avoid a wide open game that favors the Caps. Just play sound defense, block shots, and counter when oppertunities present themselves. The Caps will try and force the tempo early on. Know what I mean
The only one that comes close is Detroit vs. Colorado (2002). The Aves were up 3-2 at one point but lost. So much animosity and so close until game 7 where the Red Wings blew out Patty Roy with a 6-0 win.
It's win or go home and someone has to be willing to step up and win this game. Our captain will show up ready to play tonight tonight, if the rest of the team follows his lead we will be back in the conference finals...
