WE WILL NOT WALK QUIETLY INTO THE NIGHT!

Jason Getz-USA TODAY Sports

Tonight the Wizards play the Hawks in Game 6 of their playoff series at 7 p.m. ET on ESPN. They trail the series 3 to 2, so if they lose, the offseason begins. If they win, we'll see one more game on Monday.

If there's one suggestion I hope that the Wizards take directly from the Capitals during gametime, they need to create an "Unleash the Fury" video. This video captures the essence of riling the fans up and they love screaming those three words:

If you want some motivational speeches from the movies, you have the famous "Inches" speech that Tony D'Amato gave at halftime to the fictional Miami Sharks (NSFW language):

If you want something more inspirational and without vulgar language, Coach Norman Dale was just as effective to his underdog Hickory High School team:

In addition, Rocky Balboa, in the modern era, still has an inspirational speech that the Wizards can use today. They still can persevere despite the hits.

But if you want my favorite inspirational speech that the Wizards could use today, it's this one that President Thomas J. Whitmore gave to a group of citizens on Independence Day:

as the President said:

We will not go quietly into the night!

We will not vanish without a fight!

We're going to live on!

We're going to survive!

Today, we celebrate our Independence Day!

TL;dr version: Time to extend this series.
