After every loss, everyone but Tavares is horrible and could be outplayed by those of us in Over 30 beer leagues.
Tampa's a damn good team, probably top 3 or 4 in the conference. We didn't exactly get beaten by the '92 Senators
Tampa played a 5 man defensive unit game to cover up the weaknesses of their individual defensemen, and they played it well. The forwards got back and supported the D men, kept their gaps, and worked hard in all zones waiting for transition chances.
What was disappointing was the the Isles had no answer for them, did not rise to the challenge. No matter how it is catagorized, they could have made a smarter, stronger effort, even when faced with a determined, more desperate, and more talented team.
Florida was shut out last night and we were embarrassed. We should be up for a battle on Saturday.
