I've been in a cave, for forty days....

All we have left now is faith, fellow Caniacs. Faith in our team, faith in ourselves, faith that the Hurricanes will win.

I believe in them. Wholeheartedly, totally. This isn't a time to be wishy-washy. This is a time for will--perfect, genuine, complete, crystalline, pure. We must be resolute in our determination, unshakable in our faith. We must rise up, fellow Caniacs, and with one voice and one heart and one soul will our team to victory.

Forget the Oilers trolls that have decided to come out from under their rocks and start bombarding the boards with crap because their team has tied the series. Forget about NBC's constant fellation of the Oilers and their bashing of the Hurricanes. Forget about MacT and Coingate and Fernando Pisani leaving his feet with every check he tried to lay on Erik Cole the other night. Forget about those things, for they do not matter.

The only things that matter now are the 20 guys wearing the Sightless Eye that will take to the ice tonight for the fight of their playoff lives. Focus on them, cheer for them, and most importantly love them--that love, that focus, and that energy will be returned a thousandfold.

The lots at the RBC open at 3:00, the puck drops at 8:00.

Go Canes.
