All the way back in Round 1, I was talking with a fellow media member and they mentioned how much they love dramatic Game 4s. It’s almost always a team looking to go up 3-1, playing a team desperately trying to even the series. That was exactly what we had tonight.

At morning skate today, every member of the media that I talked to said roughly the same thing, “I can’t believe we’re back here.” Halfway through Game 5, everybody was making plans for what they would do with their days off in between series, and obviously you know what happened next.
