Odds Still Good
I know what y'all are thinking. How can the Canes possibly win game 7 after how they played tonight? Yes, Edmonton skated better, their special teams were better and overall, they totally outplayed the Canes. Yes, Edmonton looked fresher and with a long trip across the country 2morrow, it will be tough for the Canes to reverse that perception. Yes, it's hard to win when your not getting a lot of shots on net. However, last time I checked, the Oilers didn't win the Cup tonight. They still have to win 1 more game, and that game is Monday night, in Raleigh. The Canes worked hard all season just in case a series came down to a game seven, that they would be able to have that game 7 in Raleigh. On Monday, they will get the opportunity to win a agme 7 at home for the Stanley Cup. Let's stop and think for a second. If I said to you last Sept. that the Canes would have a chance to win the Cup in a game 7 in Raleigh, everyone of you would have jumped at the chance. Well, the Canes have that chance. Everything that has happened to this point means nothing. All that matters is Monday night. Anything can happen in a game 7. A bad bounce, a bad call, a hot goaltender, etc., can determine the outcome of the game. The best team doesn't always win a game 7. There is a 50/50 chance the Canes will win the Cup on Monday, I'm excited about that, and so should you be. Do your part, be loud, show this team how much you have appreciated the season they gave you to this point. Believe it or not you can make a difference, and the players will be able to sense your level of belief by the amount of noise in the building on Monday. Now is not the time for doubt.
