On a day with two Game 7s in the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals, New York Islanders defenseman Steve Staios drops by Thursday afternoon to discuss the Stanley Cup Playoffs. Staios, who has played in 1,001 regular-season games, as well as a Game 7 in the 2006 Stanley Cup Final, knows a bit about the pressure the first round's four remaining teams will face Thursday night. After a season of facing off against these teams, he also knows about their personnel and tendencies. So stop by and get an insider's scoop on the drama that will unfold Thursday night.
I don't think today was my most solid game that I've had, some rebounds here and there. I know there's a lot of work to do, not every game is going to go as good as these last few. I've just got to make sure I keep working and keep trying to get better.
