Game Seven

Runaway train

The Detroit Red Wings, the NHL’s top team during the regular season, couldn’t stop them.
Neither could a 0-2 series deficit to the San Jose Sharks in the Western Conference semifinal or a wicked bout of the flu during the conference final against the Mighty Ducks of Anaheim.
Losing Conn Smythe Trophy candidate Dwayne Roloson in Game 1 of this Stanley Cup final, then falling behind 0-2 hasn’t stopped them either, even though it stood to reason it should.
Given the above, the Carolina Hurricanes will need one helluva game plan tonight to put the brakes on the Edmonton Oilers with the Stanley Cup in the house for Game 7 at the RBC Center.

A simple message for the Hurricanes: Play your game

There is one game left. It’s for everything. How do you play it? You play it as you would any game. Nothing extraordinary. No new wrinkles. Play your game.

    It’s going to be an epic game. This has arguably been the best Cup Final in a generation.
    Oilers have history against them (since ’39 they are the sixth team to come back from 3-1 in a final, but only one has won the seventh, Toronto in 1942 on home ice).
    But the Oilers have all the momentum, esp. the way the Canes lost that fifth game, home ice on the PP in OT; plus they are banged up due to Edmonton’s hitting.
    I predict the game will go to OT…how cool would that be?
