The only reason I'll watch is to see Jacques Lemaire execute his flawless defensive strategies, Marian Gaborik score 5 goals, and Brian Rolston to release never-ending slap shots from the point.

Minny is getting a bad rap this season. From the games I've watched, they forecheck plenty. They're pretty aggressive, feisty, gritty and truculent. All those good things. TB? Not so much.

Yeo was quite defensive (in interviews) last week when his style was put into question by the Edm media, and I think he was justified.

Just because an NHL team has an exemplary defensive record, which Minny has currently, and just because that NHL team once upon a time played an extremely passive game, doesn't mean they play that way anymore.

From what I've seen, Yeo's style/philosophy is to attack.

I hope Boogaard gets in a fight; those fans in Minneapolis really love to see the Boogeyman go at it.

In seriousness, I'll catch as much of it as I can, but that might not be much. Early start isn't doing me any favors.

Think we'll see a "Tortsplosion" behind the Tampa bench tonight?

Quoting because honestly I don't believe what I read.

Agreed. Pretty sure they roll the passive 1-4.

That's what I've been seeing in my limited viewing of Minnesota. You watch them way more though, so maybe I don't know what I'm talking about.

No I'm being sarcastic. It's usually the case.
