Between the patented Bruce Boudreau playoff choke and the fact that other than Chicago and Pittsburgh there is no-one in the league who I think is significatly better than we are, I think we are at leat 50/50 to get through this series now.  We are skating better than they are right now, and I think Jimmy showed us tonight that he can play in the playoffs.

I would love to see Tuzzi get up with Z and Pav on the first line for Game 5. In my ideal world Sammi loses his spot to Tuzzi and Tootoo replaces Tuzzi on the line below.

Sometimes I feel like Babcock hates the idea of an old school grind line. I know he likes all his offense to be as to put the puck in the net, but the value of a line that goes out and plays high energy, fast, and physical - even if they don't score - helps open up the ice for everyone else.

that was a heck of playoff hockey game.  Tense, solid play throughout.  Mostly 5-5 with a couple key penalty kills mixed in, late dramatic goals from both teams and a crowd that was charged up most of the night.

loved it

looked good last night, he could be SOOO huge in the rest of this series.  Sammy looked ok at times but then made some bad mistakes, but hey, he hasnt played all year...looked ok.  When Abby gets back I would like him up there with Pav and Z again but move Burt with Fil and the mule on the second line. 


Love me some playoff hockey for all those who hate hockey, I feel sorry for them.
