Just A Reminder…ShareThis
I told you so.
In the other series, one of the red teams shot it into the other red teams net twice late in the game (sarcasm aside, it was a pretty thrilling finish for all the Canes fan), effectively moving up what I was hoping would be a conference final to a semi-final, Pens v Caps.
How bout the Ovechkin-bashing from the colour guy in that last game? Advising him to dump it in? This is exactly what coaches do that makes players go beserk, but to advise it to The Great Eight is ludicrous: “Don’t take guys on one on one, get it deep, pass the puck”… Ovie’s top 10 would be on the NHL’s all-time top 20. You want the individual shockers, you deal with a couple turnovers.
I hate the prevent defense teams go into when they have the lead, it’s like football. Teams start shredding teams who suddenly change their defensive tactics in an attempt to defend their lead, and tonight, the Devils paid. Plus, I think Marty already had a vacation booked.
Predictions, praise and snide remarks on round two to come! Stay tuned!
(Round one totals: 6 -2, with one definitive down 3-1 “The Caps will advance” that counts as a bonus ball)
