Hopefully Polak opens up a can of whoop ass on some Queens tomorrow, and the rest of the team responds accordingly. I'll admit that I overreacted to just one loss, but if they fail to get it done and assert themselves as the superior team in game 2, stick a fork in them.
I wouldn't say that...especially if they outplay the Kings again and come up short.
I've seen far too many things the buck the trend to ever say "stick a fork in 'em" if the series is only 0-2.
We're not a 7 seed playing a 2 seed and envisioning being down 2-0 to a superior team. This is a very good Blues team (a better team than the Kings) and we're only down 1-0 in the series, and if they happen to go down 2-0, the Kings still need to win 2 more games...and with the record of home teams in this year's playoffs?? Nah... we're not out of it until the Kings have secured their 4th win.
I didn't get all wrapped up and swept away by this team this year to give up on them if they go down 2-0 against a friggin' 8th seed. Not a chance. Even without Petro.
