“My message to our guys is you’ve got to suck it up, got to fight through it,” Cooper continued. “And if they’re bringing it, you’ve got to bring a gun to a knife fight. That’s how it has to go. So to get on them, we have to be better.” Cooper
That has got to be some of the most incoherent babble I've heard from a coach in a long time. "And if they’re bringing it, you’ve got to bring a gun to a knife fight" What the hell is he talking about?
I think he's talking about getting 8 or 9 power plays tonight or something.
Maybe just maybe Backes, Reaves will become available now.
But I'm absolutely shocked the Blues should be a team that's made for the playoffs they have the size, grit and physicality but once again goaltending has let them down. May have been the last game for Ken Hitchcock as a Blues coach.
Just goes to show you that size, grit, and physicality aren't the be-all and end-all of playoff hockey. Sometimes speed and puck movement and scoring are, you know, sort of important and stuff.
The Blues were so slow today it was almost disgraceful. And Allen was terrible. There's your series in a nutshell.
true but now it's highly likely that they both will, like I said we aren't playing Chicago anymore, and if the Habs let Ottawa back in then do we even have to play the Sens? With the WC would rags get em?
Stays within the division. Rangers play the Caps/Islanders.
What I can't handle is Johnson going into the boards like he was dead on mild contact with Glendenning and the bulls*** that ensued. Luke gets rag-dolled from behind, hurts his hand, and that diving little midget has his way for the next 6 minutes and OT. Why can't these teams win without resorting to tactics?
