On TV, the Forum lighting looks dull. Being there is completely opposite unless you're in the upper deck. The lighting's really adequate downlow. Great place to watch a game at, especially when there's a decent crowd, etc. I love it there.
Games vs Tampa are so frustrating. We're usually the better team, but give away the W through stupid penalties and defensive gaffes. I seriously don't understand how they made it all the way to game 7 in the ECF last year, and I've always been a big fan of Tampa - definitely my favourite expansion team.
Nothing hockey related, but I wanted to give you props on correctly using "couldn't care less" and not "could care less". I'd say 9 out of 10 people at least get that wrong.
But that's not as bad as the number of people who don't know the difference between "than" and "then". You'd think more people would get it right just by accident. It's almost like people are using them wrong on purpose lol.
Gilroy should be getting PP time with the 1st unit tonight as he was practicing with that unit in practice this week. Him and MAB have actually been really solid defensively and Gilroy was actually playing on the 1st pairing with Brewer for several games when Hedman was out and didn't look out of place at all. Just need to watch Stamkos when Gilroy is out there, because like all 6 of his assists have been direct passes to Stamkos that resulted in goals. It's kind of somewhat weird.
Not to nitpick either, but Jones was waived and sent to Norfolk a week ago and will likely never be here again. Gervais and either Pyatt or Shannon will be the other scratch.
And for the person that mentioned the ex-Rangers tonight, there's 3 ex-Bolts on your side too.
Gilroy shows up against us, but our Tampa connection combines for some goals to overcome that. Last year the Lightning shat on us but I think we're the better team this year. Their speed will probably give us a problem, though. I say this one goes to a shootout.
