Carolina was due for a loss. Their last regulation loss before last night was exactly two weeks from yesterday (also a loss to Tampa, BTW). Unfortunately that loss couldn't come at a worse time.

Also, Tampa is a well-coached team of professionals who would never forego the opportunity to eliminate a division rival. Stamkos mentioned it during the first intermission, they were motivated and wanted to take out Carolina. Just because a team has already clinched a playoff spot doesn't mean that they have to lay down and not take the role of spoiler seriously. I have the utmost respect for the Lightning, that's how athletes should play in a game like that.
