Does anybody listen to what the teams say about "momentum" carrying over from game-to-game in hockey playoffs? It depends on what end of the so-called "momentum" scale you are on. For instance, after Edmonton won 7-1 last night in Game 6, the Oilers and their fans think ol "Mo" is on their side. Conversely, Anaheim believes they'll create their own momentum with a good start to Game 7 on Wednesday!
For a while last night, I thought Chris Jones was going to play "villain" again and only take Canadian prospects who are honing their talents at U-S colleges. Second overall pick Cameron Judge and second round selection Dartiusz Bladek...both American raised and attending U-C-L-A and Bethune-Cookman, respectively...were the kind of selections that had the appearance of Jones thumbling his nose at C-I-S talent. But, Jones and the Riders made up for it the rest of the way...making C-I-S players their last seven selections.
I didn't think this would happen, but I think Dwane Casey will get fired as Raptors' head coach before John Gibbons does as Blue Jays' manager!
