The results will be the same whether the fans have ‘more expectations’ or more ‘patience’.
Yes. But it is a fact that there is no legitimate progress until we beat Boston. After 2 game 7 upsets in a row after a very promising series against the caps in 2017, and before that one of the worst comebacks against us ever, there is no actual progress until we beat Boston.
We saw fans on here before we knew the 2020 playoff schedule talking about how avoiding Boston in round 1 and finally getting a series win is a victory. It really wouldn't of been.
Based on your logic they could win the cup, not play Boston and there would be no progress made because they didn't beat Boston
My point is we shouldn't have this defeatist mindset of "man we keep getting owned by this team, gotta avoid them". We should be hungry to beat them now more than ever, the same way Washington finally beat out Pittsburgh in a series.
Couldn't care less who they beat if they win the cup
