Still skating on thin ice

Coach Sleek's G5 speech:


Ducks: we played great in G4 to bring the series back home. Good work. But remember: even though we are closer, we are still one loss away from elimination.

The reason it is so hard to come back from a 3-0 series deficit is with each win, the road ahead feels easier. Each win means that there are fewer future wins required, and thus the burden feels lighter.

But remember, the task at hand is not different: one loss and we're done. That has not changed.

The ice we're skating on is still just as thin. The number of wins required has not changed:

ONE WIN.

We did it before, let's do it again. Give 'em hell, boys.

(A disciplined version of hell. I'm talking to you, Rusty.)
