Game thread today:

  • First period is HERE at Broad Street Hockey.
  • In the second, we'll invade Pensburgh.
  • In the third, we come home.

A few quick numbers to get you perhaps a little more hopeful today:

  • There are six series in the 2009 playoffs in which one team is down 0-2. The odds of at least one of those teams coming back and winning the series are 55%.
  • The odds of at least one of those teams coming back to tie the series in Games 3 and 4 is 81%. The chance is a little higher if you allow them to tie the series in Game 6.
  • In 2006, the Carolina Hurricanes were down 0-2 to Montreal in the first round. They were blown out in Game 1 by a score of 6-1. In Game 2, they fell in overtime 6-5 -- both games in Montreal. They came home, won Games 3 and 4 before going on to win the series 4 games to 2. Then, they went on to win the Stanley Cup.
