    That misplay by Strome when he had the wide open net in 3rd will haunt him forever.

    That was the reaction of a team that knows they probably just lost the series on about the slimmest margin possible. I’d be really upset too.

    I loved seeing the fire from the team at the end. Rangers were pissed and hurt, having lost at home when they were completely expecting to win. Trouba just tried to elbow Palat. Poke the bear and start shit, bring it bitches.

    I don't mind the extra stuff at the end, a lot of people saying we should have quietly skated away and celebrated but Kucherov knows exactly what he's doing there. The more you can get the Rangers focused on something other than winning their elimination game the better, if we see undisciplined behavior from the Rags at the start of next game we'll know it worked.

    Yeah the refs put away their whistles in the 3rd, but they need to watch Troubadour, he keeps leading with his elbow to hit people in the head. That said, yeah the guys sent a message at the end of the game and Stammers blow to his protagonist was really good. Maybe they will stop the silly stuff. Good to see Serge score he needs to shoot more often from the top, I would think the Rags are worried…they lost on home ice and have trouble away. Should be a tough game on Saturday.

    ↑ This.

    These guys are really doing this again, aren't they.

    The nauseating NY Ranger butthole bathing and scrotum slurping by the announcers in each game and the hockey media in general has been shut up nice and quiet with a big fat piece of black, blue and silver duct tape.

    There's just an undeniable sense now that the Bolts are going to the Cup Final for the third straight time. If so, this time will be against a WAY tougher opponent than DAL or MTL, so the hockey gods will need to be in attendance and ready to work their magic. But these guys with this stifling, smothering defense are about to make history, you can feel it

    Yeah, but it’s valid to question why Kucherov was out there. We all know he’s emotional, and before Perry arrived he was clearly our most agitating player. Nothing that happened was surprising, but I kinda doubt Cooper wanted that to happen, and while Kuch’s ability to help defend a late lead is underrated, I won’t be shocked if he keeps him on the bench next time we’re in that particular situation.

    Insane how clutch this team is when they're rolling. They really don't flinch in these "first team that blinks loses" situations. It was definitely scary for a bit when McD missed a few shifts but when he came back it instantly tilted back and that was all she wrote. Please finish it at home this time! No need to go back there even though I have faith we would win anyway.

    I really didn't care for Kuch starting a scrum at the end of the game that could have resulted in multiple injuries, including a Stamkos broken hand punching a helmet. We won, skate away and blow kisses to the crowd if you want to, but stay away from that stuff, you're too valuable to this team to pull s#$t like that.

    You weren’t getting a penalty in the third period without an arrest warrant.

    I find it extremely funny that they’re beating the Rangers playing Islanders hockey. Any way you want to get beat by this team, you can get beat.

    Yeah, there was some egregious shit the refs let go, but as long as they’re consistent both teams make adjustments.

    I feel like TB should have been on the power play for almost the entire game.

    Two point shots and net front presence gets the job done. Lightning have really got their game in order. Stamkos showed he has the mitts and the wits.

    Stammer bringing out the Vinnie in himself. Beautiful. Suck it, Rags.
