GDT: R2/G7 Sep 4 Vancouver - Vegas 6:00 Snet - Game Seven!

Post by Per »

Tonight's the night! Let's finish them off! 8-)

I would like to steal a few words from the sage woman of this forum:
Would be nice if our PP came alive.
Would be nice if we could eliminate penalties.
Would be nice if we had our forecheck going.
Would be nice if we could score first again.

All we need is one game where we play our best for 60 minutes. One game where we are the better team.
HW

Now, once again, I'm so impressed by the way this team plays.
After game four, I thought we were done.

But no.

The players have played their hearts out, doing the seemingly impossible.

I expect another all out effort tonight, and I think by now they have gotten into the heads of the Vegas players.
Their knight caps, so to say.

I believe in this team. They have no intention of going home yet.
Tonight they win again.

Demko looked gassed at the end of last night.
Hopefully he can recover quickly, but another day before this game would've been huge.

They asked the league, (strong rumor), for just that. This was well before last nights game. It made sense because the ice would be better
as no-one would have played on it Saturday
Demko made reference to the back-to-back games he had to play in the college championships. He sounded good late last night.
In re to team emotion, think I once read somewhere positive emotions were a better way to carry into your next endeavor then negative ones. ;)
The Knight post game interviews didn't look positive, so there's that. :devil:

The Canucks definitely have the momentum & if they can get the 1st goal again that should carry over.

The chance to knock Goliath down for the count has come upon us once again.

As fans, this is what we live for. I wouldn't in my wildest dreams think we will be in this position today, and yet here we are.

I really couldn't ask for more from this team, but dammit this is too fun to not plead the boys to do this:

SHUT THE FUCKING VEGAN CHIRPERS UP, FOR GOOD!

I hope the strategy of playing in a small defensive box for the last game saved some gas for tonight. vegas will be playing desperate hockey tonight, we'll be playing skilled, 'got nothing to lose' hockey tonight.

Demko has had enough time off that two nights in a row shouldn't hurt him, right? I guess we'll fluery in the other net.

We got this.

GO CANUCKS GO!

The only chance our Canucks have is to exhaust them to death with smart and skilled play. And then you need heart and luck.
They have more gas but this team i love so much is 'Hearter'.
Goooooooooooooooo, trying to get sober. :cheers: :cheers: :wave:
