Yes, but they were all pretty hurt on injury list.
I am confident the coaching staff and players are preparing and are going to their best.

Trying to compare the team we are playing in this year's playoff to last year's is like comparing a crocodile to a chameleon!

Most people know history 0 they just think they are above it - cant happen to them sort of thing.

I believe the coaches & staff will pound the concept of finality!!
