Hartford Whalers? Is that where they went? They were the first hockey team I ever saw play. Living in Springfield, MA as a kid, they were on television all the time. Green and white unis. I was already a Celtics fan by then so the color scheme fit. I didn't understand the game back then tho, so I never would watch a full game lol

That was one of the most absurd periods I've ever seen.

They set an NHL record for SoG in a period! 33.

If Cam Ward wasn't playing out of his mind, this game would be 12-1.

Through 2.5 periods...this is one of the most dominating performances I've ever seen.

Cam Ward should get the first star of this game.

Cam Ward has given up FIVE goals...and has a .900 save%.

I'll just leave that here.

This is what this team is capable of on a given night. This is what this team should be.

They have the depth to be exactly this.

Hory Sheet! Domingue is a ****ing animal. He got about just as angry as me when we lose. I think we learned a lot from the wild game...don’t feel comfortable...ever.

So how many times last year did we talk about them being too cute and looking for the perfect pass? Screaming for them to just shoot the damn puck?

At the end of the 2nd period, my old lady says, (Insert Boston accent here): "Jesus...it looked like they were on the Power Play for 20 minutes!?"

I couldn't disagree with her. For once.

Here's something you don't hear often:

It's 0-0 (barely)...and the Bolts are getting their asses kicked.

We really picked it up in the 2nd.

What a game. 2 penalties per side. This is the best of the NHL; back and forth, non-stop action.

And Kuch got screwed on that last attempt.

And STILL no Stamkos. He has been a non-factor. Again.

Y'all notice that he AND Kuch are whiffing a LOT on their one-timers on the PP? This isn't the first time, either...

Last night's 23-save shutout comes as lucky No. 13 in Andrei Vasilevskiy’s NHL career, moving him into sole possession of third all-time in Bolts franchise history.

1. Ben Bishop (17) - 223 GS
2. Nikolai Khabibulin (14) - 192 GS
3. Andrei Vasilevskiy (13) - 151 GS


Pretty amazing.

I’m gonna get to see the Bolts play live for the first time in several years. It’s a strange 3 PM start time on a Friday though.

If you haven’t seen Vegas this year you are going to be entertained by the newly constructed 4th line: Reaves-PEB-Carrier. It is the most violent line in the league and if these guys could only finish it would be unstoppable.

Reaves and Carrier are basically linebackers on skates and they are going to play the entire shift in your end and they are going to skate right through and over you. It’s nothing but chaos and collision when these guys are out there.

Vegas is still having trouble scoring more than 2 goals a game and they are missing their best blue-liner and 2nd-line Center so I think Tampa beats them for the first time tomorrow.

I can't wait to see a game in Vegas.

I wonder if the Bolts will start Domingue tomorrow? They have a back-to-back so it'll be interesting.

Apparently, LV is regressing this year and TB defense/PK is much improved.

This should come down to how Flower plays.

They are 3rd in the league in shot differential and have had horrible puck luck, easily hit over a dozen posts so it’s still too soon to say if they are worse. Their PP does suck though.

But they are either being incredibly smart or dumb by signing all these young guys to these long contracts based on one season. Theodore, Schmidt and Tuch all just got like 6 and 7 year contracts. Seems like a huge gamble to me.

Keep your eye on that 4th line; it’s old-school smash-mouth hockey, just a demolition crew. In the LA series

Another huge win for the Bolts. These are the kind of games that get out of hand and then go to overtime and only show a point for it, but they didn’t break. Vasy was getting pepperd with shots the last period and quality shots too but with a badass goalie and defense that has been tremendously way better this year, I have faith we’ll make a deep run for the Cup.

This was the "perfect storm".

The second night of a back-to-back.
Back-up GK.
Best defensman out...without ANY practice to get the new line-up together.


**** happens. GREAT road trip.

I feel bad for NJ on Tuesday. I can all but guarantee Kucherov is gonna be pissed. That ain't good for NJ.
