    Hey, that’s Lightning legend Gerard Gallant you’re talking about… he scored a whopping 4 goals for the club!

    NYR got a break by playing against back up goalies in first two rounds and still took 7 to win both series. If Bolts play in their structure they will be fine, on paper both Leafs and Panthers are better teams, though NYR do have better goaltending and coaching than either of those two previous opponents.

    Rangers have too many nasty guys, just hope they are physically worn down.

    The big test will be how our pk handles their pp, I think we can score the goals to win.

    The canes’ power play has sucked almost as bad as Florida, Svechnikov and Trochek are pointless in the second round, Raanta gets hurt if you breathe hard on him, and Andersson would be coming back very cold if they turned to him in Rd3. Plus we beat ‘em last year, and so far in this year’s playoffs they can’t win without home ice and last change advantage. They’re fast and structurally committed to defense, but I don’t feel terribly threatened by them.

    Many reasons I’d prefer Carolina.
    Well, it’s the Rags. Too bad Carolina blew their home streak in Game 7. I feel so bad for their not-at-all overrated fanbase. Raanta’s injury opened the floodgates.

    Now we have to deal with a team with a very dangerous power play, a good mix of youth and experience, and of course a young goalie who can unpredictably be good or bad on any given night. Oh, and did I mention Barclay Goodrow is back after missing several games?

    KHL: Yaroslav Lokomotiv, 2019-20, 40GP, 2G, 10A

    Not showing he played 20-21 or 21-22. Maybe he's toting a rifle for ol' Vlad??

    So. God still hates the panthers. Bolts have more cups in the last 26 years than Canada. I can’t fuckin believe I have to say this: THE WORLD IS NOT FLAT!!

    Binnington being injured was a ridiculously tough break for them. MacDavid vs Mackinnon now, a lot of skill on display with weak netminding and not the best defense in front. They’ll feast on each other and develop bad habits

    Blues outshot 2:1. Kyrou had a glorious chance early in third. Second Colorado goal has to be stopped.

    I'm sure Colorado will be favored over Edmonton, but I would have a tough time trusting Kuemper. Wouldn't be surprised if all the Western Conference Final games end 5-4.

    Huge pressure on the AVS after their previous early exits...Enjoyed Tocchet saying they need to play more like the Bolts..Details, sacrifice, take a hit to make a play, block, etc etc. And he's right. That's what champions do. We'll see. They only need to win one of two.
