His ports of every game. That guy's gonna have to get on their game pretty quick here to make sure that they'll be -- behind. -- that you do you -- trouble. Politics these guys to kind of sit back after gave its okay. Now -- on a play at a high level again.

It was this. Pretty tough spot you know everybody was in the same boat. -- Not that it has little -- overseas. Great much to -- how how critical how intermarriage altogether. How long it can dictate -- And and let exit what the brewers are or prepare as -- -- have a veteran group force the same coaches and the same certain terms and they know. They're also much about the system and are so well coached. I think the brutally have a returns called back and Q into the season here. -- heard Barry Melrose say you know during the shortened season for him it felt like every night was a playoff game that intensity of that feeling. Is that fair to look at that would you feel that way for you. Yeah I mean excited to get -- or again certainly you know for the first part of their. You know you're you're so happy to be back here and intro and then in every -- Excited about being back and playing financial schedules. Is missile or. And Vietnam. You know that you if you go to -- -- keep -- but it's all behind. You're concealed turn around and make sure that mr. -- hockey games. -- exclude every game actual -- so.

In scrambling to try to get into the playoffs. You'll see that now you know not laid off the -- but it will take very long. Were searching it should be enough that you understood it it'll it'll go off to a cease. Nor am watching this this scrimmage last night at a Boston Bruins dot com couple thinks that a one. Was what Jim axle they skater on the ice and a black and gold Jersey where in a number -- That wasn't a 77 out there but there was a seven at the that was a strange.

We're talking a Bruins legend ray Bork you haven't seen him play a game and that's what are yet so maybe you'll have to wait but -- think ray. It'll be different than watching him play whether it was for the caps are -- year. Even Pittsburgh to see him as a father in a Bruins uniform worn the uniform we -- for so long.
