Great GDT graphic as always, thanks for your high quality work, Mike!
If Petr stands tall early and our boys draw first blood, things could get very interesting. We all know what they need to improve from game one, and I have this feeling that Hank is due for a game in beast mode.
Sadly, I'm stuck at a rehearsal from 12-4 today, and it's a 35 minute drive home, so I should be able to catch the third, but I will be depending on all of you for the recaps for the first two.
As was said previously, it's great to have our goalie steal one. Big ups to Petr Mrazek for his first NHL playoff win. I haven't watched the DVR yet, but I'm looking forward to it. Keep it rolling. Getting Abby back for game 2 would be a nice plus. If we can draw first blood early in game 2 and Petr is strong early, could the team be getting in Tampa Bay's head? Nice of the D to be stepping up in a better way. How did Marchenko look? Does it seem like he will stay in for game 2?
I will have the iPad on during chorale rehearsal tonight (I'm hoping I don't have to cover the piano so I can keep the feed going - a benefit of mastering Solfege and sight singing when they have a rehearsal during the playoff drive).
Here's hoping for a decisive win to send a message and Tatar gets to 30. Maybe the injury to Cole will be a rallying point - seemed like the guys liked him as soon as he came over. I just hope the refs don't make a bunch of ticky tack calls, and if the Canadiens start the diving act that they a) don't fall for it and b) call the dives.
I'm visiting my parents, but I set the TV on a timer - hopefully letting my rabbit watch the game is good luck (holding him and petting him during the entire OT and shootout yesterday worked). I have the DVR set, but I hope to be logged on for most of the game tonight. Any detailed recap in the thread is appreciated.r
