NGL, both lineups look eerily similar in talent without Hedman and Stamkos plugged in.
LETS GO BOLTS!!! ⚡⚡⚡
Fantastic GDT @TheDaysOf 04!
Winning the first one would be huge, as it would scare away the ghosts of last year! I want them to give it all, if we lose, so may it be, but I don't want to see them coming out flat.
GL guys! Just win
We can do this
By the way, what beautiful graphics @TheDaysOf 04
Ouch that d is pretty bad, unless Shattenkirk can get his shit together. Rutta still hurt?
If we can get a 3-0 lead and then proceed not to choke it away, we'll be alright.
I dont think so. Show me their Kucherov, Point and Vasilevski.
I still don't think we have any excuse to lose this series. We are still deeper and more talented than this team without Stammer and Hedman.
They have a massive advantage behind the bench.
Well, it's hard to overstate the importance of the game today. We can't let them in our heads again.
My worst fear is blowing a lead...
Aim for the head. simple.
I'm not as good as Bryan Burns and Jay Recher in their "Bolts Breakdown" show but, my 3 keys are:
1) our defense (and Vasy) has to step up their game. Likely we're without Hedman for a while, so, in particular, I think that Sergachev will play a key role in this series. He's the only one that could "replace" (in some way) him. For this reason we need the best Serge!
2) In the post season, the special teams are very important. So, our PP (if the officiating will be decent of course) has to work in the right way and so is the PK. I don't want to see tons of wasted chances...
3) We have to be angry for a revenge. Remembering what happened last year, we have to be focused on this series, trying to play a full 60 minutes game, without any pause. Anything less than this would be unacceptable.
We absolutely need to win game one. Otherwise its RUH ROH
This team is so weak mentally that they'll get in their own heads and fall apart. Worried they wont recover like last year
Well, Cooper does seem to be more agitated lately. Maybe he'll walk out with a Boston accent, goatee, glasses and 6 inches shorter.
^ This face must keep Cooper up all night.
Btw, after the Coop era, it's be a very nice thing to have Torts back behind our bench
Skill is there. Bring the "will"... please
Last year was Infinity War, we're in the Endgame now.
I'm not sure Torts would mesh with the Vinik/JBB regime.
You're right. Probably they will look for another type of head coach.
Guys like Torts or Roy does not fit well here.
Btw, right now both Gallant and Laviolette are available: so, in case, it's easier to hire one of these 2 than contact Torts...
