Dom Lusczyzczyszczsn of The Athletic has this to say about the Bolts -

6. I think this Tampa Bay team might be even better than last year’s version (that argument might deserve its own full article), one that looks to be one of the most complete teams in the salary cap era – committed to a complete 200-foot game and elite in both ends. The Lightning aren’t invincible, but they would be heavy favorites in a seven-game series against anyone according to my model. Only two teams would hold the Lightning’s chances below 65 percent: Boston and Pittsburgh. Against an average team, they would be 83 percent favorites.

That’s usually way too certain for a game as random as hockey, but this Tampa Bay team is a different breed and we’re in uncharted territory now. Still, it’s not 100 percent either and last year’s Lightning team, which had a 75 percent of beating Columbus in the first round showed that. No matter how automatic the team has looked in 2020, there are no guarantees in hockey. Now they know that, and that’s likely the biggest reason to fear the Lightning this year.

Thanks to everybody for the congrats. I just got out of the sin bin here, but oddly I could stay logged in and like posts? Weird. It was a super fun final and I got hammered the night they won. Didn’t

Why aren’t they showing flyers highlights

Look man I can’t go through this again. I’m too old to be as sad as I was last year. That #### hurt my heart.

Just install a speaker in every helmet and have someone upstairs talking in their ear during the game. Can advise when they are about to get hit or when someone is cutting back door for a tap in. Nobody will know. 😉

Could hire the ex Astros to be the eyes in the sky.

pretty low price to include what's left of Backes and an actual dead guy in the trade

Also important to note: the Bruins are retaining 25 percent of Backes’ remaining contract. So the Ducks are only on the hook for about $3 M in real dollars next season on that contract.

Axel Adnersson

Skilled defenseman who skates well. Has interesting offensive upside, with very good passing skills and the ability to lead the rush. Strong puck mover and plays well on the man advantage. (EP 2018)

Since the start of the 2016-17 season, Igor Shesterkin has earned a win in 104 of his 129 appearances in the NHL, AHL, and KHL. He has earned a win in 25 of his 33 decisions between the NHL and AHL this season and has earned at least one point in 28 of those 33 decisions. #NYR

The guy is going to carry them into the playoffs. Hank was a healthy scratch tonight.

David Ayres, the Marlies ZAMBONI DRIVER, and emergency goalie from Whitby, huge Leafs fan, going in as Carolina’s emergency goalie against the Leafs in a HUGE game of playoff importance. With half the game to go!

Leafs getting beat by a 42 year old emergency goaler :lmao:

He got the win and a shot on goal

 

@domluszczyszyn: “the leafs lost to their own zamboni driver in net” will be the new 1967 for years and years and years

He's  a big body who never lived up to his high draft spot

 

Can't stay healthy for more than a week but will probably win Conn Smythe if Tampa picks him up. #Ryano'reilly
