Yep.

I don't know what it is...but this is the THIRD year now, where our "Big Game" guys (Killorn and TJ) start to play. I was wondering coming in, if this was a fluke or coincidence. I think we can call it a trend now.

We NEED one win in NJ. We held serve. That's it. It'll be interesting to see how we come out for game 3.

For some reason, NJ has been late to the dance, thus far. They get down big and THEN remember that they're a good team. The experience factor is really showing. It helps that Hall and Hirschier are young and inexperienced. When the other team's best players are in that position, you have a BIG advantage.

The OTHER trend that TB has displayed over the last 3 years, is the ability to win on the road, in the playoffs. We'll see if that trend continues.

I fully expect NJ to win game 3. Probably a close one. NJ is too damn good to get swept. And I expect TB to come out like their balls are on fire for game 4. The one thing we've ALL seen over the years, is that this team gets soft when things are going well and play their asses off when their backs are against the wall.

The bottom line is that NJ has to win 4 out of 5 against the Bolts. That's just not gonna happen. The only question is how many games this goes.

Honestly...I've heard the "experts" talk about how the regular season series' really don't mean much. The PIT experience a couple of years ago should've made me a believer...but I really doubted it.

It's completely true.



Anyone else notice that BOS is taking TOR apart in their series? They (BOS) looks really good right now. It helps that TOR has no defense but still...

God help us if Ericksson gets traded to TOR in a couple of months. As I stated a few months ago...they are a legit defenseman (or 2) away from being legit Cup contenders.

Bobrovsky is a MONSTER! I think I'd rather see PIT as opposed to him, should we be so fortunate.

Jeez...watching Washington try and choke away ANOTHER playoffs. Looking to go down 0-2 AT HOME.

They are the antithesis of the Lightning, come playoff time.

So the NHL is profiting handsomely off of Vegas’ success. Looks like Seattle is going to have to pay 150 million more for their franchise than Vegas did. I predict the next expansion draft will be vastly different. I’ll bet you won’t see all these side deals, eating of contracts for prospects and draft picks and so on. Teams will just say take one of our guys and be done with it.

Girardi is good to go. If we keep up the same intensity as the first two games, I'm feeling good about tonight.
