Such absolute nonsense in this thread.
No team rolled over intentionally.
Carolina was playing a 2nd game in 2 nights against a damn good team. Carolina put together a damn nice run, but ran out of gas from the strech run (and played a VERY talented team)
Do you know why Tampa played hard, because you go into the playoffs winning. Not for Torts, or any other reason.
Tampa Bay got ready for the playoffs by executing playoff intensity play. But also don't forget, Tampa rested Roloson and Malone.
The Rangers lost games this last week because they sucked, and Carolina earned their points, not for any other conspiracies.
Bingo! When Sam & Joe said Tampa Bay would be playing all of their players (minus Malone) for the game, that was the first thought that popped into my head.... That Tampa wanted to keep up their intensity level and momentum heading straight into the playoffs... It would be a stupid decision to sit some of your players and have the other guys on the ice skating around all lackadaisical thinking they could mail this game in, only to have the team try to regain it's compete level and composure for their first playoff game..... You don't mess with a team's rhythm by taking a game off in that fashion....
