We should be fine. Not worried about making the playoffs. Of course there is adversity but that is an opportunity for someone to step up. Many teams go through something like this around the playoffs. and it's up to the players.
Brown has been playing well as of late over the last 10 games or so. I think two games against the quacks will make this an interesting and fun close to the season.
TM has stated that he would like to earn a win to clinch a spot.
The players know if they win they are in.
They are playing at home.
They are coming off an embarrassing loss.
This team has veterans.
Quick gets a chance to bounce back after a tough game
If they don't win I seriously see them missing the playoffs. And sadly we don't even have a first round pick as consolation.
So is winning all of them. I don't dwell on possibilities. I attend the games, cheer like a mad man and let the team do the rest.
im with Zad, except for the attending part. imo they clinch tonight and knock DAL out. i still want to see them knock ANH out of the race Fri/Sat. totally cockblock Baldy and the rest of the boys from OC
Seriously, panic about what? Not making the playoffs? Because that's the jist I got from your post. Not only do we have to lose every game, but Dallas has to win every game. Even then, two more teams have to pass us in the standings as well. Could we miss the playoffs? Certainly, but the odds are heavily against it and the team, aside from the other night against San Jose, have played great down the stretch, even without Williams and Kopitar. Aren't we like 20-5-5 in our last 30 games? I'm not worried at all about the team, but man this fanbase can be easily scared at times.
Nothings changed from the start of the season; get into the playoffs, win a round and build for next year when our real cup push should begin. It's harder now without Kopitar and possibly Williams, but the goal's still the same and we should be looking at that, not panicking that we fold like a cheap tent while Dallas rattles off three wins in a row and blows our doors off.
Have some faith, this team has earned at least that much.
