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.
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.
