Two Different Approaches

I saw something in the pre-game one press conferences yesterday that I thought was pretty interesting. John Stevens said in his presser that he goes in to each playoff series with the full expectation that it's going to go seven games, because if you treat it like you're going to win in four, you can find yourself looking ahead before the job is done. If you believe it's going to be a seven game series off the bat, then you bring the heat until you get to four wins.

A reporter, I believe John Boruk from CSN, asked Dan Bylsma what he thought of that method. Bylsma said that "it's a race to four, not a best of seven" and that's how his team is going to approach a series.

What do you guys think? Should a playoff series be approached as a "sprint to four" or a seven-game marathon?
