This is crazy fast, back and forth action.

This is the BEST part of hockey. You can't even catch your breath.

UN-BE-LIEVABLE.

What a game. **** me if this isn't the best game in professional sports.

That OT was ridiculous.

Gutsy win by the good guys.

It was funny. When it happened, my girl looked at me and said, "That's interference, right?"

I told her I had NO IDEA...because I don't know what qualifies.

They need to figure this **** out...

Gotta admit my mistakes.

I busted PP's balls earlier in the year regarding Conacher.

Still not a fan...but he hasn't sucked.

Good call, PP.

What a game. The best Lightning game I've attended in person. I have no idea how we won in OT. I think the hockey gods had our back in OT after we got screwed by the clock operator & then the refs/NHL. If that wasn't GI, I don't know what is. Also, I was screaming about the clock well before the Stars scored. How does the clock stop in the middle of play? Lol.

That was a resilient win. No Vasy, no Kuch, still no McDonagh, second of a back to back on the road, 3rd game in 4 nights. Huge win.

This team is so dangerous when we hold that puck in our offensive zone...Jesus...Now we just need to be able to get the puck out of our defensive zone.

Ok. I saw bits and pieces of this from my bar.

I just watched the replay of the entire game.

I'm not exactly sure what I just saw.

At least the Bolts just said, "**** any attempt at defense", in the 3rd.

I'm withholding judgment until the end of the year and I see how McD fits...but as it stands NOW...this defense will get us beat in the playoffs. It may be in the first round. It may be in the finals. I have NO clue...but this is an abomination.

That is, unless we score 6 goals/night. Which they might.

And I'm amending this well known saying:

There are 3 things that are certain in life: Death, Taxes and a goal when you have a 2 on 1 breakaway, where the 2 are Stamkos and Kucherov.

That's just unfair.

At what point does Vasy get fed up with the ineptitude in front of him? Seriously, how many turnovers 8 feet in front of him should he have to stop? I don't know what the deal is but Cooper has said all year it's a mindset. Is our defensive system just not good? Hopefully McDonagh eases things down but I don't see how one player can have such a huge impact. Maybe getting McDonagh and then Palat back will be enough. Our defense wasn't this bad the first 2 months of the season.
