    What’s the point of having a hot goalie if he isn’t going got steal you the series as the underdog? Also, I don’t want any of the remaining teams to win the Cup

    I mean to be fair it's kinda hard to steal a game when your offense only generates 14 shots and 0 goals. Demko deserved better.

    And I'd kinda like to see Perry try his shit with Reaves running around.

    I think it'd be funny if the Isles took it, just so Trotz can laugh at Washington.

    I don't have any particular problem with Washington, I just think that'd be the best storyline

    I wouldn’t be upset at the Isles, if only because I still have a soft spot for Varly. Dude put in some absolutely unreal performances for the Avs during some incredibly awful seasons.

    Yeah... this is rough.

    Welp, how appropriately Philly Sports. Get the fans hyped for a comeback, and completely blow it on the last bout.

    Was hoping the flyers would be able to pull it off. Defensive teams like the islanders are always a pain to play.

    Ugh. Now rooting for anyone but Vegas. Arrogrant, classless team that chirps when a player is laying injured on the ice.

    I am even more upset over last round if this is the best Vegas can muster.

    Well that's one way to start the series.

    You could def tell that the Lightning had a week to rest while the Islanders had just finished playing a 7 game series.

    That tip pass by Kucherov to Point, to set up for Kucherov's score was Crosby-level magic

    I love the hockey man narrative that vegas knew what they were doing and didn't just get super lucky.



    Remember when they signed their very first player and he was from the KHL and then like two weeks later they bought out his contract before the season had even begun?

    Bold and shrewd. Sure. Hockey men can never fail, they can only be failed

    Edit: Vadim shipachyov, he played 3 nhl games, my bad.

    Edit2: maybe it was a bold more to sign a guy with no nhl experience and then they followed it with a shrewd move to buy him out because he wasn't nhl caliber?

    I feel like it's less McPhee being very good than the other GMs being very dumb

    and by other GMs I like, 50% mean Dale Tallon

    I fell asleep trying to catch up with the game last night. Tonight I had some time to watch the key plays of the game. This was a beauty.

    Also, a little bit of luck, in my opinion.

    Wild bill karlsson is 109th all times and 1st for currently active players, for single season shooting percentage at 23.37, and only one other currently active player has cracked 23% once (the oshie)

    Good enough for 3rd in goals scored (43) and 115 in shots taken (189) that season

    And if you don't think that's luck, just imagine MAF being good in the playoffs (more than one!), for Christ sake!

    As mentioned above, sadly, Dale tallon is no longer a GM

    I really hate when the Bolts resort to bullshit plays. Killorn getting a game misconduct for a dumb stupid dangerous play. Then one of the new editions from the trades, hitting Martin, who Killorn clobbered, again but it was a good hit, followed by a fucking cross check in the name sending him into the boards with his head again.

    Vasilevskiy stole that game for Tampa. Islanders had a 5 min major power play as well as a 5 on 3 and he stonewalled them.

    It'd be nice if next game Tampa didn't wait until 10 mins left in the game to start actually playing.

    Dress 11 forwards. Lose one to being dumb. Lose another from injury. What do you do? Score with 8 seconds left in a tied game. With a defenseman dishing out the apple!

    Ya I was a little nervous about it going into overtime while only having 3 lines worth of forwards.

    Hopefully Brayden Point is ok and that Cooper shoves a foot up Killorn's ass so he doesn't do stupid dangerous shit like that hit again.

    On watching the different views, and knowing Killorn is usually the good guy, I think he wasn’t trying to do what happened, it looked more like he was going for a shoulder on shoulder?

    Yeah, the expansion draft is tentatively scheduled for June 2021.

    MacKinnon running away with the Lady Byng in apparently a landslide is hilarious. Yeah he only had 6 penalties all year but he’s not exactly the definition of calm, cool and collected either. He much more Peter Forsberg than Joe Sakic.

    A hard hitting game going on between The Lightning and The Islanders.

    Edit: Good game by the Bolts. Nice win. I just noticed Brayden’s wearing the C. Nice! Though he went off on a line change in the 3rd and never played anymore of the game. Not that he was really needed while we had the 2 goal lead. Nice empty netter for Pat Maroon, on a backhander while racing down the ice. Followed up by Kuch trying the same thing but on a forehand and missed the net! Hah Kuch!

    I still have to watch the third period of the Tampa game. Have they said anything more about Point? Was it just a rough hit he took or did he tweak a knee or something?

    Also if it comes to fruition, Dallas v. Tampa should be interesting. The #1 Offense vs. the #1 Defense.

    If Dallas wins the Cup, I worry there will be a moderate regression to teams with a slow, plodding defense that slowly strangle the other team (and the fun of watching the game).
