Well, Ken McRae has been through this before. Problem is, his team isn't playing El Paso this time.
Neither are the Bats. Not hard to understand why Hughes didn't want to start the series at the LEC -- or go 2-3-2. He's spoken in the past about the pivotal nature of Game Fives, but right now that one isn't even on the radar. Blowing a late lead on the road then losing in OT is tough, but I don't think the Bats will hang their heads. It's been a counterpunching series of razor-thin advantages. It ought to go six or seven regardless of who wins.
And what's the secret to Roscoe's goalie rotation, divine guidance? Going back and forth is not supposed to work this time of year -- a nugget of wisdom you can now put in the same place as all our Bucks pre-season picks.
Btw, Stefan Keski-Kungas is my favorite name since Melissa Auf der Maur. Go ahead, say it out loud. "Keski-Kungas." It's fun!
Though it also drives me nuts, 'cause it always looks like Laredo had an extra player in the Pointstreak boxscore.
