You know what, The Underdogs, we do certainly respect the confidence. It's a bold move to play, not one, but TWO starters with zero points (Nick Kwiatkoski and Cyrus Jones), while still getting the W. We just ask you to please keep those flashy shenanigans to the regular season. Can you imagine how silly we'd look if we let it happen in the playoffs?
