    So the second round was a letdown, though we did get some fun games. I am not optimistic about the next round, either. I think the Isles will make life hard for Tampa, but if the refs call it even a little like the regular season, I don’t see how the Islanders can win a battle of special teams.

    I am not sure how Montreal beats Vegas. It’s going to take Price being God and Flower being awful, which is possible but not likely. I just don’t like the matchups for Montreal. Vegas can get the Stone line out there against Suzuki and just erase that line entirely, while still dominating offensive possession.

    i agree, Vegas plays a smart game. I think Colorado would’ve been a better matchup for mtl. Colorado is top heavy and their d is small.

    Colorado missing their second line center all series was a pretty big deal

    I remember during Panarin watch he would keep tweeting non-stop that Colorado was the favorite to sign him and that they had been having secret meetings with panarin to pitch him on colorado. Literally no other source in the NHL had it but he continued to shout into the universe that it was true.

    Those secret meetings ended up being a single layover meeting at the Denver airport with Panarin's agent. Panarin wasn't even present.

    LMAO

    Blues released a documentary about the post cup celebration.

    A) It's fun as hell to relive it

    B) It's weird as hell to see pre pandemic crowds just having fun and not giving a shit.

    Weak goal by vasi, the guy has no other option than shoot. He gave him the easiest play

    if you score on a play like this it better be bar down

    What a period for the isles, hedman losing his shit at the end is perfect

    Tampa is panicky again, relax. Play your game and see what happens. You can’t press against these types of team. That’s exactly what they want you to do

    Nice period Isles. This is going to be a much tougher series when you don’t commit penalties like Fla and Car do.

    Such a weird stat. A lot of those losses looked a lot like this one also. Flat. First big pressure game of the playoffs for the bolts on Tuesday. Win or lose I’m expecting a lot better of a performance than today.

    If he’s going to leave Carolina, he should go to Seattle (if Seattle wants him). Perfect fit imo.
