@coopz22 To quote Michael Keaton in Gung Ho: “you GOTTA take it.” Better to play 7 than…be out in 6 : (

And away we go, away we go to Game Seven.
And the Rangers are fuckin lucky they’re there.
But as my friend Glenn says above, better to play 7 than be out in 6. (And he speaks from experience, being an Isles fan).
We didn’t just go through a full 82 games last year, but I went through two seven game series PLUS a disastrous ECF. The way the Rangers played in the first two games, I didn’t think we’d see a game five, let alone seven.
Forgive me for sounding like the hockey version of the fan played by Randy Quaid in Major League II, but I do not have a good feeling about this game.
But that could work to my advantage. It must mean that I don’t give a shit about the outcome.
Here’s the deal: The Rangers have scored less than one goal in four of their games played. Three of those games were losses (especially the game they scored zero, haha). This leads me to believe that Henrik Lundqvist is otherworldly…but also that he cannot do it all on his own, contrary to popular belief.
We need to have some guys remember they were brought in to come through with the offense (see: Richards, Bradley; Nash, Rick).
We need to remember that having a man advantage is generally a GOOD thing for most teams.
But most of all, game seven need to be a regulation game, a regulation victory. There needs to be no bullshit allowed. And even if there is, who gives a shit, because I don’t have a good feeling about it anyway. So there.
Perhaps I need to bring back this video from last year.
Perhaps my friend Metstradamus said it best today:
“While I hope for a few more weeks of this, I’m prepared for whatever happens.”
That about says it.
