Many citizens of this great nation will be making the rounds tomorrow. On talk radio they will blast the Sharks heart. Blogs and mainstream media outlets alike will trot out the convenient lines of playoff choke artistry in order to cater to the public. Fans will state it's the same ol' team, the same ol' team that has broken down in the playoffs time and time again.
To hell with em'.
At the crux of the playoffs remains one fact, and one fact alone- four wins gets you the series. Not two on the road. Not two brilliant games from your goaltender. Not two games where you instilled a little doubt into a team that has "crumbled" under that pressure before.
It's about survivin. And that begins tomorrow.
