8/22 Game 1 "@" Avalanche (7PM CT) - Miro’s Better! clap clap clap-clap-clap

Postby Troy McClure » Fri Aug 21, 2020 1:09 pm

With no real break, we’ll have to wait and see if Bishop or Johns can play. I doubt it.

If Bishop can play, do you start him though?

I wouldn't...especially if Bishop has been hampered by something like a groin or back issue. I say if Bishop is available, you start Khudobin but pull him when he gives up three goals to Val in the first period.

If Bishop isn't good enough to even backup, I can't see a 48 hour break making him ready to start.

The Stars are playing an actual hockey team this time. The good news is, Jim Nill's job is now safe for another decade.

Stars and Avs have played four playoff series, and in all four the heavily-favored team has lost in embarassing fashion.

Stars in 7.

I'm not so sure the Avs were the heavily-favored team in 99 or 2000. The Stars were President's Trophy winners one year and coming off a cup victory the next.

However, you are definitely right about 04 and 06.

Maybe not a 'heavy' favorite in '99, but in '00 Dallas was just a speed bump on the Borque Finally Gets His Cup Train. Remember all the talk about how Borque, Blake, and Foote would each play 30 minutes a night of shutdown defense and we had no answer for that?

Good times.

Not much of a break, but then again we don’t have to get going, either. I’m definitely worried about the Avs.

I don't think the Stars were favored in 03-04, when Chris Therien was the team's leading playoff scorer.

This Avalanche team freaks me out. However, if there's one team amongst the remaining ones to be capable to shut them out, it's the Stars.

I'm expecting to have boring hockey à la Lemaire back again, but maybe it's the path to take to play in their heads. Or not.

Sadly for him, the reason Bishop isn’t in Tampa Bay any longer is because the healthy playoff mode version seldom is available.

The Avs might have the worst anthem singer in the playoffs.

Fichaud, the guy who told the Stars would come back when it was 3-0 Flames, said that Benn will be the key player tonight...

Well, Benn just made his best play of these playoffs.

Imagine that it was 50/50 for the overall first choice between him and Drouin when both were flying with Halifax.
