Smith has been playing really well lately. Has stopped 69 of the past 71 shots thrown at him. Our defense blocks alot of shots much like yours. Probably won't be a shortage of offense though with Stamkos, St. Louis, Gaborik, and Boyle in the lineup.
Hope to repeat the last time these two teams met during Thanksgiving week.
My favorite player against my favorite team, totally torn especially since I need Stamkos to have a big night for fantasy haha. Any chance they could kidnap him and force him to play for the Rangers? Leave a few players behind like Gilroy and Feds or something...
The Positive: Hank is 13-5 with Tampa and a 1.93 GAA; that's a huge bump in confidence.
Rangers are 7-3 on the road
Must be feeling confident after that Calagry game.
The bad: Rangers seem to get 2-3 wins, then immediately lose.
Stamkos is having an unbelievable year, and a huge hand from St. Louis
Rangers PK is pretty average, Lightning's 4th in PPGs i believe.
MDZ will be on the ice.
My thoughts about this one lies in strong defense and making sure St. Louis has no opportunity to pass to Stamkos. Stamkos is a lot less threatening without St. Louis. Their netminder's weak and if Gaborik can get room to move he's sure to score a goal.
