Ray Bourque Gives Lightning pep talk

Before the game he called Tim Taylor's cell and addressed the team. Told them just to worry about game 6 and bring the cup back for a 7th game. It seemed to have uplifted the team

Ah yes. Clearly, it was all Ray Bourque's speech.

Conspiracy indeed. Even Ray Bourque is against the Calgary Flames.

Was it Taylor with the falling trip on Simon at the end?

I'm almost positive Ray told him to do that.

It was Cullimore who lunged out and tripped big Chris Simon.

That's a very hypocritical opinion, Sotnos. Seems most of you guys choose to see only what you want to see as well.

Ray Borque's speech must not have done much, becuase the Lightning were terrible in regulation. The only thing that kept them in it was constant clutching and grabbing.

But, brutal special teams by the Flames let them into that game. (including one BS penalty to Conroy that was called immediately after Tampa was allowed to generate a scoring chance by slashing a Flames player's stick right out of his hands)

It's disapointing. Calgary has been the superior team five of six games, yet here we are.

Funny, that's the SAME thing that has kept the Flames in the playoffs to this point.

Im tired of the "we played the better" game copout. The better team in any game is the one that wins. PERIOD.

Oh...man

But I'm the one who can only see things one-sided, eh? Don't know how you came to that conclusion anyway, since I've posted here maybe 5 times since the EC semis.

The Lightning were the superior team throughout most of the game, not your Flames. And you must have missed out on the Fedotenko phantom interference call....while most of the game the Flames obstructed away from the play to try and stemy Lightning surges

I didn't believe in the conspiracy theory against the Flames, but now that Bourque is involved, I have to reconsider, because anybody of intelligence knows it took a conspiracy to get his name on the Cup. I just didn't think Andreychuk rated as high as Ray among the hockey gods.

Man some of you are dense

If you think Sutter made that speach because he believes the NHL is "out to get his team" then you really need to start thinking outside of the box

What is Raymond Bourque doing giving motivational speeches. The guy couldn't win until he was carried by Colorado on a that 16-W campaign where he was basically given a free cup (not that he didn't play well). Colorado's stars won the cup for him that year, not because of Bourque.

He must have went. Through my life I haven't had lots of cup success so I can tell you what not to do. Don't lose games when your opposition has 3 wins.?

Did you fall asleep during that game? I think your home team bias is showing through there. Calgary was horribly outplayin Tampa most of the game. Getting shots from the outside and generating your most dangerous attacks on the PP does not count as being superior.

Exactly. If one team pots their chances and the other doesn't- that is a hockey skill. Blowing or missing the net on scoring chances is a LACK of skill. If one goalie makes great saves- that is a hockey skill. Special team productivity is a hockey skill. These are precisely the parts of the game that matter.

You could argue that Kiprusoff was at fault on the Richards goal, so Richard was "lucky". But Boyle was just as at fault on the Nilsson goal, so Saprykin was "lucky" to get the loose puck. This sword cuts both ways.

Moreover, Calgary missed some good chances and Khabibulin made some good saves. Last I heard, missing good scoring chances was NOT the mark of a "better team" and that good goaltending WAS. This is precisely what hockey is about. How many odd man rushes Calgary generated (or some such thing) is incidental to that basic fact.

Anyway, I certainly didn't think Calgary had much of a margin in play at all. In the 2nd Calgary was a bit better. Tampa was a little better than Calgary in the 3rd and much better than the Flames in overtime.

You should probably understand there is no explanation for why he made that speech that doesn't end with the word stupid!
