No. Kyle Wellwood fought off the checking of 3 Tampa players along the boards and fed Tangradi on the left hand side, who roofed it cleanly behind Lindback, who was likely anticipating a cross crease pass to Slater.
Possibly making it less likely CBJ will deal any important players (namely Brassard) to us... then again this is CBJ. Not like they're close to being a contender. Looking forward to a renewed rivalry with WSH... although looking at those teams, other than CBJ there are no easy games in those schedules. Might be analogous to football where we beat the hell out of each other for six months then by the time the playoffs roll around the division leaders are all beat to hell from the regular season.
Chicago may be in a position to be dominant for a long time as they've got 3 "often soff" teams in their division (Winnipeg, MN, CO) and they subtract Detroit. Their biggest rival going forward is STL and while skilled they're not exactly a rough bunch to play against (physically).
