Murderers Row
 
Starting Tuesday we have 9 tough games in a row 7 of which are on the road. Safe to say this stretch will make or break any chances of us making the playoffs IMO. What say you?

I agree. But I think we will tough through it and come out with a majority of wins. We looked better against the Panthers than we have in a while. I'm hoping it translates to better play overall. Our D really needs to pick it up. We shouldn't have to score 6 goals every game to win.

I hope you're right, but it WAS the Panthers. Giving up 5 goals to the Panthers is like 7 or 8 to a good team.

It is amazing that with all the skilled players the Lightning have that they don't try to forecheck more to put the pressure on the opponents coming out of their zone.

The choir. You're preaching to it.

Anyway, we need to put wins together over this stretch. The obvious reason is we need the points, but we also need the confidence of beating top teams that we'll be facing in the playoffs if we get there.

The new buzz word is "net presence".

Let's see how long we hear that one. Whenever they do execute a "net presence" stratagem we seem to "compete" a lot more.

If we will play without defense like last 7 games, we will lose all nine games..

Leafs 6-2
Bruins 3-1
Canes 4-3
Pens 5-1
Sabres 5-3
Rags 4-2
Bruins 4-2
Pens 6-3
Devils 3-2

The optimism is overflowing.

If they are able to stay out of the PB, I think they can win a lot of those games. Bury the opportunities they have been getting and play the kind of defense they are capable of playing. They can do it. Its on them and nobody else. Forget about the refs and who they are playing that night. Play the game they are capable of playing and they will get wins.
