Carolina Prepared For Game 7

from Chip Alexander of the News & Observer,

What’s left to be said? Not a lot. The Hurricanes either win tonight and keep the Stanley Cup in their sights, or they have a bittersweet ending to their season and start facing the speculation about who returns and who won’t for next season.

“It’s Game 7. You want to play in those games,” Staal said. “Obviously, we wanted to finish it off when we could, but it didn’t happen. We look forward to Game 7, look forward to the challenge. You dream of playing in those games growing up as a kid, and it’s going to be fun.”

When they led 3-1 in the series, the Canes talked about theurgency of winning Game 5 andand finishing off the Bruins in Boston.

Now, the common refrain—as if the Canes were trying to convince themselves of it—is that that they gladly would have accepted and embraced a one-game, winner-take-all scenario before the series began against the Eastern Conference’s top seed.

Panic Set In

Imagine losing power at 3:00am this morning and the first thing that comes into your mind is how in the heck am I going to watch the game 7’s tonight?

Thankfully power was restored about ten minutes ago and all is well.

I am sure many of the fans who have teams involved in game 7 tonight are trying to make the hands of the clock spin faster.  It is a day of anticipation, both in a good and bad way and I hope you are dealing with it in the best way you can.

Bruins Up Against History

from Dan Shaughnessy of the Boston Globe,

Claude Julien’s skaters are attempting to do what no Bruins team has done in 20 previous tries: come back to win a series after trailing, three games to one. Milt Schmidt’s Bruins couldn’t do it in 1947 against the Canadiens. Bobby Orr and Friends couldn’t do it against the Rangers in ‘73. Cam Neely and Ray Bourque couldn’t make it happen in ‘95 against the Devils.

So it’s up to Chara and Tim Thomas to boldly go where no Bruins have gone.

“From the time we fell behind, three games to one, our goal was to create Game 7,” said Julien (who enjoyed one of those Bill Belichick nights in which everything he touched turned to gold). “We’re there now. We need to decide what we’re going to do with it.”
