Okay, here's my own contribution as to the keys to producing in Playoff:

1- Secondary Scoring
2- Secondary Scoring
and, most important:
3- Secondary Scoring

Both teams have an elite top offensive line, and thus a LOT of work will be spent into shutdowning it. This is why I believe our bottom-6 will have to pick up the pace and dominate. Same for THEIR bottom-6.

1) Plex and PK needs to do to Stamkos what they did to Crosby
2) The defence needs to be faster to counter Tampa's speed
3) Price needs to outplay Bishop
4) Quick transistion game/quick strike offence

PK first needs to get his head out of his butt and play like he did last year.

Maybe he knows three times more about hockey coaching than you ever hope to learn, and thus actually know what he's speaking about instead of just being an armchair coach. This isn't "I haven't been relevant in the NHL more than one season" Don Cherry we are talking about. This is Scotty ****ing Bowman.
LG a la science infuse. Don't you dare question his knowledge of hockey. Scotty Bowman is obviously full of it and doesn't know what he's talking about.

Its not gonna be easy but it can be done.

We need to kee playing the way we are right now, get pucks to the net and try to deflect them. Sharper defence then last game vs them.

Stamkos and PK are buddies from way back. PK will take a lot of pride in shutting him down. The question is: Will he get that match-up?

I think Tinordi could be be a huge factor this coming series. If he's able to play the Hal Gill role it could be an enormous advantage for the habs.

Size is one of the only point in common they have.

Well unless Murray does this job, I mean't more the clear the crease and protect the net type role.

Or he takes out Stamkos ala Komisarek vs Thornton in the 2004 playoffs.

Yeah, well, he was invisible and didn't record a point, so he was pretty much taken out of it.

Even if we shut down Stamkos, it's still not a sure bet. I don't like this first round matchup.

If we do get home ice, those will be the most two important games in the whole series. I think that if we play well and score in bunches against Bishop in those games, it'll get into his head. But if we're stymied against him like we have been all year, it'll get into ours.

Super pumped for them to start.

Every team currently has multiple scoring threats. Facing another team will not change anything in this regard. Although, shutting down Stamkos will go a long way. We still need to keep Callahan, Filppula and Palat on a leash.

I bet they're wondering who on our team they need to shut down.

Same thought process would be going for any other team we could have faced.

OP. there is a key. It starts with finishing ahead of TB in the regular season and getting one more home game.
