I don't know what the deal was. I came in ready to play, and sat through the 1st. He beat me fair and square though, and the 3rd was fun. I just don't care to waste the time, once he had a lead, fine, but it was 0-0 and the puck didn't move from Hedman's stick in his zone until 12:00+ minutes into the 1st.

To be honest, I was worried he had a secret strategy, but it was basically to hope for a Stamkos breakaway, or simply shoot low far side and tap in the rebound. Once I realized that was the plan, it was a reasonably competitive game--3-2 in the end.

Ultimately, it's on me. I should have suspected that was the plan, and I just wasn't ready to defend. To be fair, he needed the win to make sure he made the playoffs, and the strategy worked.
