Get to watch tonight. Unencumbered by silly broads.

End of 1. Score is 2-2.

On the one hand, the Bolts look really sharp offensively. They are peppering the **** out of Ward. Stammer looks as fast as I've seen him this year. Maybe he's hitting his stride?

Vasy is beginning to give me some pause. On the heels of his last outing, I really wanted to see him start strong tonight. On the one hand, neither goal was soft and would've beaten nearly everyone but it's really hard to judge...especially when you're missing Girardi on the PK AND STARTING both Sustr AND Koekkoek.

I hope Vasy isn't "hitting the wall". He's never played this much before, consistently. And I suppose his start has led me to expect more than is realistically possible from him.

I guess we'll see...

Vasy just seems a little off tonight, just kind of a bad night for him

Who do I have to blow around here for the Bolts to get a ****ing PP?

Did the announcers say it's been 2 YEARS since we've gone 2 games without a PP?

On a side note:

I'll readily admit...I was curious as to our signing of Girardi in the off-season. As we all (should) know by now...Yzerman is a ninja-genius but still...Girardi!? The guy that Ranger Fan couldn't **** on enough last year?

Yeah.

Our PK looks a tad shittier without him, doesn't it?

Those goals aren't on him...2 on the PP...but we're just used to Vasy not giving up goals.

Right?

Please?

The last one wasn’t his fault he was screened bad , the other ones looked a little soft to me .. not complaining tho, Vasy is the best

They scored 3 goals with the man advantage. There are no "soft" goals when you're on the PK. That's on the defense. That last goal was missing the net until it was re-directed.

We score. A lot. Again.

Nice win. Stay healthy.

And did anyone else have massive sphincter fluctuation, when Stammer went legs first into the goal and skated off gimpy?

1st game back home after a road trip is often tricky and the Bolts still won without putting forth their best effort.

This is yet another sign of a good team.

Stay healthy Bolts... Let's get these next 2 at home before hitting the road for what (on paper) is the by far the most brutal 17 game stretch on the schedule.

Can't blame Army. Vegas used the same Golden Knights team mascot name, same color scheme and very similar logos.

I'd say Hedman is probably the one skater we can least afford to lose. He does so much & you can't replace what he does. Praying to the hockey gods he's ok, but still in the locker room.

Shitty game so far. Calgary taking it to us, Hedman hurt. Bogus penalty on TJ leads to a Calgary goal, up 3-1 now.

2 goals is nothing for this team to overcome , mike smith is playing well tho . I think lightning offense is playing well just the defensively they can play better .

Hedman out the rest of the game

Just a bruised knee? No way, that looked way worse, like an MCL or something.
