So I decided again to revisit the 24/7 HBO Special on the Caps and Pens' Winter Classic and during the Penguins 12 game win streak and the Capitols 8 game win streak this wise piece of wisdom came up from Liev Schreiber:
"Teams are never as bad as they appear during their lowest points, never as good as they seem during their highest ones. The very best clubs then must be not just talented, but resilent; not just hungry, but focused. Their sport demands it."
Let's hope resilience and focus is on the Avs' agenda.
