Q. Could you both answer the idea of having an extra day mentally and how much having that normal practice would mean in this situation? MICHAEL PECA: I think the extra day allows the coaches, you know, to obviously analyze Game 2 a little bit more, allows them to make the corrections. I think as players we kind of understand and are aware of some of the changes that we need to make, but it is the coaches that are able to break it down and, you know, kind of lay it out in simpler terms for us so we understand it and correct things for Saturday. So the extra day allows them the time to do that a little bit more diligently. Q. What about the mental part? CHRIS PRONGER: Obviously the mental part as well, get the two days, obviously a long day yesterday of flying, still rehashing mistakes and things that can be tweaked and corrected. Obviously using today as the day to go out and implement those changes, you know, try to brush that second game off and get back to focusing in on Game 3 here and not worrying about what has happened in the past and worrying about the present.continued in the comment section...
