Can I repeat myself till I get my only wish right now?
Bring our best hockey tonight plz!!!
Time to win at home. Caps have been flying high coming into our arena so far this series. But just like Icarus they better be careful trying to fly to high and watch out for those Tesla coils.
lots of hockey on NHL Network today before this game. World Championship semi-finals and Memorial Cup.
NHL Network Schedule
From the Series Talk thread.
Actually, I would love Sergy to be more like Heddy not only because he IS a rookie and has much to learn but I believe that Sergachev also has the natural talent to blossom into a Hedman-like top defender. But he's still only 19 so I don't expect as much out of him as I do out of McD.
McD is in his prime and has years of being the #1D on the Rangers. So it's not that I don't expect offensive help from him. His 4 points in 5 games vs NJ was great! And I do think he's definitely an important part of this team. I'm very happy that Yzerman got McD and think our blueline is much, much stronger because of it. Even with his occasional bonehead defensive plays/penalties, he's also done some terrific defensive plays too. His presence has also changed around the pairings so it's great to be able to see our third pairing come on the ice and not be filled with fear.
I guess I want him to not feel like he has to be "the guy" like Heddy so that he takes stupid risks. I think McD needs to just play HIS brand of two way defending and not try to do everything himself like Heddy does/can. He's got a dependable, supportive partner in Strålman and the two of them have done some terrific work together in the first two series. When they trust each other and are in sync, they are a top shutdown pairing that gave Taylor Hall and the Bergeron/Pasternak/Marchand line fits and can occasionally bring some offense.
Here's hoping today's game brings some nice solid TEAM defense!
Just win baby!
Let's go !!!
Please don't suck!
We KNOW you have the talent. Play like you're on the road tonight.
Back on home ice
It's a trap!!!!!!
Let's GO BOLTS! Carry the momentum and get them win tonight in front of the home crowd. I called it all along BOLTS in 6!
Huge game! Feeling really nervous but I hope they can get it done tonight and put the pressure on Caps, would be great for our fans at the arena to enjoy a win as well!
LETS GO BOLTS!!!
Time to grab a hold of this series and not look back!
Someone better get some ruh roh up in here before game time
Enough pussyfooting around and kick some ass!
We got this
Stay out of the penalty box and stay in front of Caps 3 big scorers, Ovechkin, Kunestov and Oshie on defense. Come on D, now is your time to shine and shut them down.
Need to take the initiative in this one and somehow get the refs not to call three penalties in a row on us.
I have been away from home for a couple of days but I'm happy that we've tied the series. Now it's time to turn the series around and play hard from puck drop to the final whistle. Let's go Bolts!
Go Bolts!!! win for the home crowd!!!!
If the Bolts win tonight I promised I would buy my daughter a Miller jersey, she is 10 and thinks he is cute, getting her eyes checked Monday.
Hope you have lots of beer on hand boys.
I smell 2 or 3 O/T....
I get the feeling it's not going to be close. Either we're getting blown out or we're blowing them out. Of course now that I've said that it will be 1-0.
