Awesome game to watch. Responded well being down early in the 1st. They were buzzing all the way until the end.

Apparently, after going down 2-0, they felt some kinda way.

Another 8 goal beatdown...against a pretty good team.

And WTF has gotten into Coburn? Dude needs to chill or people are gonna think he doesn't suck.

I know right! He had a couple of brain farts and the usual I’m getting pressured and I can’t clear the puck, so I’ll just heave it all the way across the rink for an icing, but did a pretty decent job last night.

You were right about Uncle Kuch...He straight pucked out last night and Stammer got a little taste of blood scoring his first goal. Hope he finds a way tomorrow to keep it up.

*His second, forgot he scored against the wings.

Not looking too good...need to start getting pucks out of defensive zone, and start pressing harder.

Didn't get to see the game...it was on behind me. I do see 40-something SoG from the Bolts and figure there was ZERO puck-luck tonight. Also noticed the game was 2-1 until about 3 minutes left.

GString...don't get squirrely on me. It's an 80 something game season. Calm your tits.

There must be some extremely agitated titties down in Miami, Alpha. They got a great shot at Hughes.

I can't believe the Panties are this bad. I actually believed that the end of last year would carry over for them. They have too much talent to be this bad. Their goaltending was their only question mark, in my mind. They might be in desperate need of a coaching change. I had them being a 7 or 8 seed this year.

It's still early but they've got some problems down there, for sure.

I like the deal now. Not sure how much I'll like it in 5 years. I'll have to see if there is a NMC there. Without one, I'd like it much more...

And there is no NMC/NTC in this deal.

Big fan. Also bodes well for the reputation of the team, with players around the league. Willing to re-sign their own, when they earn it...and Gourde has certainly done that.

Good for him.

This Petterson kid is absolutely phenomenal. He is doing all this at 165. Imagine when he puts on 25 pounds.

Ho-hum.

Can we just FF to the playoffs and figure out what's, what?

This team is what it is. It's gonna be a top 4 seed come playoff time. We have all seen this movie before.

the only questions are: Does the Cirelli/Erne/Joseph line figure out how to actually SCORE GOALS, by the time the playoffs start (SPOILER: They will)

How injured are we and Is Vasy healthy and hasn't played 65 games?

This team is built to be a dominant team during the regular season. They can literally smoke ANYONE on a given night with 5+ goals...and it really doesn't matter who the opponent is. We've seen this for years now. They lose a game, get pissed and then hang 6 on a really good team, the next night. They'll throw up a stinker every now and again because it's an 80+ game season and that happens.

The only thing most of us care about is...can we FINALLY win a cup?

We are the Pittsburgh Steelers of the NHL. Guaranteed to make the playoffs...only to have the ONLY better team beat us in the playoffs...or that better team gets beat and we win it all.

The only exciting thing this regular season is going to be how many points we score? Do we win the East? The Presidents Cup?

The things I'm looking at:

1) Koekkoek and Erne. These guys are on one year deals. It's time to put up or shut up. I really thought Erne would be a better scorer than this. If he isn't...adios. Koekkoek is an interesting story. He's playing well with Heddy out...but where does he go with Hedman's return?

2) How does Joseph respond? Remember when Point first broke in? He had a hard luck, first half of the year. FINALLY scored on a re-direct, ticky-tack goal. Once he did (and Stammer went down), he's been one of the best players in the league. Joseph has that kind of ability and talent.

3) When do we get some call-ups...on offense. We have guys in Syracuse that will be damn good NHL'ers. There isn't room for them. Are trades in the offing? We extended Gourde. We have Stammer, Kuch, Miller, Johnson, Palat, Killorn, Gourde...everyone but Point, locked up, long-term. Essentially our top 6+. PLUS our top 3 Defensemen. We have a LOT of guys about ready to come up...on offense AND defense.

We don't have room for everyone. Even NEXT year. People have to go.

That penalty sucks because nobody knows the ****ing rule! Even the refs. It looked like a good no-call but you never know with those calls.

That Lucic attack was complete bush-league, bullshit. You don't punch a guy when he's laying on the ice. Period. I'm not even talking about the blind-side hit BEFORE that.

I wish the Bolts had put up 3 more and run up the score. Edmonton is still built like an old-school, western conference team; Big AF and slow (outside of McDavid obviously).




This just in:

The Lightning are STILL a really good team. Rinse. Repeat.

We'll see how it shakes out come playoff time.

I watched a longer replay that shows Lucic stalking Joseph from the other side of the ice. Once he blindsides him it actually looked like Joseph was trying to protect his face with his stick and Lucic was trying to use that same stick to choke him out.

I don’t think any of the punches really landed though so that’s good. Props to Cirelli for getting in there to save his boy

I thought the first punch landed , $10,000 fine given to the thug ... I wish we had somebody who could fight the big guys. That’s the only thing this team is missing when this stuff happens .

That was the good thing about having Boyle. Now you’re right we don’t really have any enforcers just a bunch of speedy vanilla midgets. We need to get someone before the playoffs start
