Sami looked pretty shaken at the end but hopefully it's just that. He has a lot of time to recover for Game 1 and with Malakhov hopefully back by Game 2/3 I think we've come out of the series pretty well, at least compared to last year.
I thought Hitch said after the game that Sami is fine? dont know thought i heard that. Vladdy get 5 days off inbetween games so lets see how he feels saturday.
I think we came out of this in relativly decent shape thou. everyone is a bit banged up i imagine but this was no way the bloody war last seasons series was.
I think we're in good shape... We're not as beat up as we were last year after the Leafs, and we have a longer rest period as well. Tampa is a tough team, and they are NOT to be taken lightly, they did beat us in the season series 4-0 convincingly... but it's the playoffs now, and it's time to step up. My prediction is, whoever wins THIS series, WILL win Lord Stanley's Cup.
