The SyraNo players have won 16 straight playoff games going back to Game 5 of the Connecticut series last year.
They are just playing lights out hard nosed hockey continuing the script that Cooper laid out for the organization the last few years.
When you play solid hockey even the goal tenders start to look awesome.

Pete have you had the chance to watch any of the IIHF games?
If so do you have a take on Bishop's poor play in these games?

The USA coach decided to start the 19 year old rookie Gibson based on performance. This goalie situation is critical for the team to begin a move forward. I have watched 3 full and 1/2 of the last game with Bishop in net and he has not looked good at all. Do you see this as a possible concern next year?
When I watch him play he is not coming out to challenge the shooter, leaving the goal post open for shots and the five hole is like a red light district welcome sign for the men of the world.
Someone stated previously this championship was nothing more than exhibition hockey, maybe it was you not sure. However, you would think that he should be playing well against arguably weaker competition than what he has shown to date.

Any thoughts on his play? Appreciate the input.
The journey starts
