This was like a big **** you from torts to all his haters. We don't like how you're playing boyle... we don't like how you're using richards... maybe we should just **** and let the stanley cup winning coach coach his first place hockey team!
This is a discussion forum. Different opinions should be tolerated. If you cannot dig it - do not go here. But you are right in principle. Lets see in May!
Very nice goal to win it. Tedious boards play by MDZ, great feed from AA and nice finish by Brad Richards.
Good = 3 Stars = McD, Boyle, Callahan
HM = Strålman, Richards, Girardi, Prust, Dubinsky, Gabby
Bad 0 Linesmen & refs, Marty B did not have a better outing. 1,5 softies, some very good saves in a difficult game for a keeper yet looked very uncertain at times
Ugly = hit on Fedotenko who probably got concussed. Should be 5 games. Totally unmotivated interference headshot. Should have been a major...
I think you may mean tenacious, BBKers.

Agreed. Prust as well.
Biron was definitely off early on, and frankly I think was the team's worst player for the first half of the game - but picked it up at the end.
Great comeback win, had to watch the TB feed. Play by play guy is fine, but the color guy is just plain obnoxious. Every little thing that goes the Rangers way he makes up some excuse. On Boyle's goal, he said it was the luckiest thing he has seen in a long time. If Stamkos did the same thing, he would've said it was great skill. And when there was a non call on the Rangers, he would ask where the penalty was. When the same thing happens involving a Lightning player, silence. And on the OT goal right after Richards scores, you can hear him under his breath saying "You gotta be kidding me...".
Professionalism at its best; this is what happens when you stick a hockey team in a Southern state with piss poor announcing teams. Nothing against you Floridians, Texans, or Arizona people but what a waste of a team. So I can now add the TB commentators to the Pens (Staggy, what a bull Malkin is!), Chico (what a play by Brodeur, he flopped a little but thats OK), and Philthy (Tasty Cakes?!). Rant over.
