Lol how do we not score on that empty net. 2:30 minutes.
It was kind of comical, actually. I would have liked some stat padding, but other than that I kind of prefer it not happening. Seeing Hedman throwing the puck down the ice, but then passing up the shot at the end.... just lol.
2 wins in a row! All around a good win...Lindback had his howler goal, and played well enough after. Toronto went goon/hack towards the end, whatever.
Lightning cracked Scrivens, but he was bound to have a game like that...doesn't matter that it was going to happen, I'm just glad the Lightning took advantage of it. Tonight was about getting pucks on the net, and good things happened when they did.
Lightning were outshot 25-19, but still managed to get 4 past Scrivens (and give him an awful SV% of .692, 9sv on 13 shots).
Have to say the Leafs played good D but overall, that was a really ugly win. I don't know what was going on with Brewer, MAB and Lee, but we need to start wearing other jerseys when we play the Leafs because those 3 couldn't tell who to pass to all night. Boucher needs to move MAB up to the wing because he obviously can't play defense. Either that or we need a coach who can coach defense.
I probably will never understand the pairing of Lee and MAB for tonight's game.....
Good game. I thought Pouliot was the best player on the ice last night. Worked hard and made a lot of smart plays. Lindback played well. He has been sharper the last few games, maybe he is settling down. Lecavalier's goal to break Scrivens' shutout streak was important. Scrivens deflated a bit after his streak ended. Overall, the team worked hard and deserved the win, good game.
Geez I hope we win, I mean I'm happy for the team with 2 points, but yeesh, Leafs fans are so obnoxious and my friend did not shut up about last seasons meetings, apparently the season before that was irrelevant, so lets win and make last season irrelevant.
Scriven has played well but I wouldn't call him red hot, the panthers have been shut out 3 times in 9 nights? Not what you call an offensive powerhouse. I think we can win this, Toronto is going to come out physical, and I think we play with more heart and passion when it's a physical game. I hope Crombeen doesn't fight Orr, I would not like to see that.. maybe a old reunion between Aulie and Orr? Crombeen / Brown would be nice to watch however.
It is great that Crombeen is willing to fight, but I do not think he should be fighting. He seems to not be a very good fighter. I felt so bad for him when he fought Rinaldo or whoever knocked him out.
