Wings will be so owned by the hawks if they play them the first round, and its looking more and more likely with how brutal they have been playing lately... they think they are already in it so they relax...
I don't look at the stats, fact of the matter is they haven't played like they SHOULD since the pittsburgh game, and that is weeks ago now..
dude...i know you're an active contributor to these boards and i appreciate that. but in this case, you need to STFU. like another poster said, they are 10-1-2 in their last 13. the wings have played the hawks really well this year, and they're better now than ever, these last two games notwithstanding (one was an OTL and the other was a one goal game -- they're not getting blown out over here). and how exactly "SHOULD" they be playing? you're not happy unless they win every game 10-0 and outshoot the opponent 50-0. god damn. it's a back-to-back game, ozzie hasn't played since russia was still called the USSR, and we're just coming off the best stretch the wings have had all season. relax. it would take a miracle for the wings to not make it in at this point. the the flames lose today, we're in. if we win ONE MORE GAME, we're in. chill out. seriously.
Goodness! The team is losing and they are failing Mindfly! He DESERVES for them to win all the time! He is being robbed of what is rightfully his! Waaaaaah! WAAAAAAAAAAAAH!
