    Columbus has zero chance of pulling this off.

    Blue Jackets have plenty of talent to steal 1 or 2 games. TB in 5.

    Sucks that their GM is going to have to get fired after going all in at the deadline only to end up against Tampa, and facing yet another first round exit.

    I think they can win a couple of games though. TB in 6

    Only thing CBJ has going for them is that Bobrovsky has sky high potential. But he's never been great in the playoffs and even if he was, I'm not sure it would be enough.

    Lightning have proven in the past that they close out weaker opponents with haste. They'll get the gentlemen's sweep here.

    I think CBJ are a tougher draw for the Lightning than many give them credit for. I'm sure they would much rather have faced The Canes or the Habs.
    Certainly, if Bobrovsky plays to his potential the Lightning are going to have to work very hard for this, but at the end of the day I think they're too good not to win.

    You might be too kind for CBJ. TB will sweep them.

    This will prove my case how MTL would've been the better 2nd WC in the east. They have a more proven team than CBJ

    And maybe the Habs would've stolen a couple of games.

    You're right to say they have the skill to win at least game 3 at home, but was their win against us really worth it?

    Broom at the ready. This is going to be the worst series of all.
