Anthony Cirelli, John Cooper, Brendan Gallagher discussed on Tolbert, Krueger and Brooks


Across the line on left wing, an election and his angled off good played by Anthony Cirelli. They're allowing them to stretch it. They caught the Canadians on the change plot gets it over and Kucherov scores. Bad change by the Canadians costs them dearly. It's 31 Tampa Bay and what an alert play by the Tampa Bay defense again. They've been involved in every goal. John hollers Joe Micheletti on the call Here on Sports USA. It's been always something from Montreal in this series, and not usually a good thing. What's cost? The most are bad line changes that even cause that Killer to on old goal, uncharacteristic turnovers and bad locations. Odd man rushes galore and they've never had the lead in the series, which has only happened to other times and Stanley Cup final history. When it was all said and done, head coach Ducharme has some thoughts on the importance of scoring first now. Well, I think it's huge against any team, it would be something important. But at the same time Cannot stop lying. And you know if you don't score the first goal, so no, we want to have a good start. I thought, uh, I thought last game we, uh it's not that we had a bad start is just You know, the major spirit right away on a on a nice ng and and on Empire play. Uh, fuck that we to understand. Uh so we need to, uh Managed to start the right way. Come out, dynamic, active, uh, playing our game, and, uh, you know, getting that first goal there for sure It would be important. And then there's carry Price who was standing on his head, with or without a helmet. All playoffs long from Montreal. But in this series against the best on the planet, the haves Future Hall of Fame goalie ISO and three with the 4 39 goals against at an 8 35 save percentage. Has allowed two goals in the first four minutes of a playoff game for the first time in 87 career starts, and that can get you one win, let alone a chance to win the cup and he knows the score. Now. You don't have a choice. Uh, you know, we've we've overcome adversity all season long. And you know racks are obviously against the wall. So we're going to start bringing our best. Yes, an understatement for sure. And don't ask his coach. If there will be a change in goal for this must win carries a guy playing Monday so If you wonder, or people wonder about who is going to be a net. Kerry is going to be in that. And, yeah, you can talk about one guy and another guy. It's about all of us. To borrow all of us. We need to be better in front of him. Everyone all 20 guys putting on the jersey you know you are looking for Monday night. Playing their best game. That's it. And so how are some of price's teammates sounding now that their backs are super glued against the wall? Well, Brendan Gallagher was actually asked if he can take any positives from that disastrous game three loss. You just have to Correct the mistakes. I mean, it's your here. I'm not going to sit here and take a whole lot of positive. We We believe we can play with these as we believe it since Game one. We just haven't shown it enough for a full 60 minutes. Uh, you know, we've had we've had spurts where we've you know, everything We've talked about. Everything we've done is work. Uh, but there's just been mistakes in our in our game. And, um, you know, we're playing too good of a hockey team. They're you know, they're deep everywhere. They're gonna capitalize are gonna make you pay. Uh, so you know, the positives are this This team has been In many holes. This change been doubted, but the character in that locker room isn't going anywhere. That's something that, uh, we're going to keep competing. Keep playing. In terms of how the games are being played. We need to get better. Sorry for the possible record amount of cliches ahead, But here they come as expected under the circumstances. Josh Anderson, What's your mindset to stay positive? Um, no, we're here for a reason. And, um, obviously, we've dug ourselves a little bit of a whole year. And, um, in the mood slight right now, and, um, we have a job to do, and we're gonna Do everything we can to, um, stay in this thing and fly out Tampa on on Tuesday. So everyone just getting prepared for tomorrow night's game, and, um, we're all going to compete and work hard and put off full effort in Of course, Tomorrow night is now tonight and many moons ago, I was the radio voice to Wisconsin hockey and their leader, then badger. Bob Johnson had some wonderful sayings. Not sure if this was his or not. But what should be hanging in the Canadians locker room right now and became a championship slogan and Madison 60 minutes. No alibis. No regrets when we already know it's a great day for hockey because it always is, and even more so, with the perfectly shined up Stanley Cup in the building, along with our glossy broadcast team. John dollars and one time Montreal drafty A few years back. Joe Micheletti, standing by Atlas, Sandra Bell Fall in Game four and May. None of us ever have to be as desperate as the ABS are tonight, guys. Well, you you Teddy. You pulled out a few of the many cliches that will probably toss around time. The cup is in the building. There's no tomorrow at their backs are against the wall. They're desperate hockey team. All of those things. But also the Tampa Bay Lightning of tossed some cliches around Joe. The fourth one is the most difficult game to get, and there's a little history here. Certainly there were ghosts at the old Forum. Those ghosts remain in Montreal. The Canadians have lost the Stanley Cup final eight times in their history and going to the final 32 times, but only once. In the city of Montreal. Have they lost here? So this is not a foregone conclusion. If you're the Tampa Bay Lightning. You have to just keep the mindset I would think of. Keep your foot on the gas. John Cooper, talking with the media this morning, said. We had a couple of chances last year to finish teams where we didn't I don't get the feeling this is a team that.
