    MacTruck is a warrior in the game and rightfully deserves his name in the Cup. Convince me otherwise.

    Ride the Lightning!

    Win in 6. Tampa scores 21 goals, lets in 15. One blowout, one shutout.

    Stamkos is there, ruled out for game 1 at least. https://www.sportsnet.ca/nhl/article...ley-cup-final/

    Stars in 6. They play a game that will frustrate the Lightning IMO, with better talent up front than the Islanders.

    Tampa in 3.

    They're a shredder.

    Dallas is a tougher team to play than the Islanders, and Tampa had loads of trouble with the Islanders.

    Tampa didn't have trouble with the Islanders. They had Trouble with Varlamov. They threw up 31 shots/60...Which is alot. Varly was .921 and 2.46GAA.

    Dallas hasn't faced anyone with the scoring depth of Tampa. If Point is healthy? Tampa rolls.

    Point is obviously got something that bothers him more with use. He tore up the Islanders for the first half of regulation in Game 6 but was a non-factor thereafter. Usually there is a longer rest period before the finals, which the league likes to hype the event. Without that this year, Point may be going through a cycle of play a bit, aggravate it, rest, play a bit, aggravate it.

    The only thing that’ll extend the series in my opinion is Tampa’s health. Even though they fairly dominated in every category except scoreboard in the last round, they wore down a bit and the Isles play heavy. I think they win but it’ll be a similar series because of how banged up they are.

    It's a travesty of the Stars win. 4 shots in last 28 minutes. What a joke.

    And Tampa had 4 shots in the first 20.

    Dallas plays a well structured game. Not much reason to take any chances when up 2 goals.

    Dallas finished with 20 shots and Tampa with 36 so it's not quite the same.

    Regardless, top line for Tampa was shit. I don't expect that to happen again.

    Lightning sure look gassed.

    I’m very surprised they started the finals so quickly. I know, bubble and all that, but an extra day or two off would have been very nice and customary. It’s not like the Lightning went to 7 last round.

    This thing is already being played almost four months late as it is, I think they had to start it fast, especially given the lack of travel. Goal drought for Tampa now at three regulation markers in three games. At some point, I expect a real beak out, but it's not clear whether it they will shoot their wad in one game with it, as sort of was the case against the Islanders.

    Ryan McDonough has played a lot of hockey through the last 7 seasons or so. And it looks it. Always like him as a player, but he looks really beat up and tired.

    Yes, one minute he's anticipating, doing something remarkably deft, and reminding me about what I loved about him as a player. The next minute, he seems a bit worn down or just an instant not quick enough. Still like to have him on my side rather than the opposition's.
