The road to redemption doesn't get easier tonight, but a win against the league's best team could go a long way in building some confidence to a team that describes itself as fragile and presents and endless string of players who have run out of things to say. But that's reality for a team that perpetually puts itself in the jaws of the beast before finding a way to playing its best hockey.
So many things have been said, so many solutions suggested, so much pressure has been placed at every level of this team, all that remains is to sit back and hope for yet another crazy sprint to the playoffs. Stop me if you've heard this before, but every remaining game is a playoff game for this spiraling team. The coach is on notice, and that notice may reach even higher than the coach. A strong finish will not be enough. Now we get to see if this team has any fight left. Buckle up.
