Lets see...two teams I like. I think it'll be a battle of the two Russian goaltenders and the Sharks will actually overcome Khabby with 3 goals while the Bolts only manage 2 against Nabby. Niko shows us why he was called up...scoring on one and assisting on another.
I'm torn on this one, reality suggests that Tampa will spank us into next week given the way the two teams are trending, but my hope is that after the last game, and a practice long meeting yesterday the Sharks will show some productive fire... so I guess I'll side with optimism...
3-2 Sharks in Overtime
Cheechoo, Sturm and Niko with the goals...
Damn you Wild GM! I was going to post 4-1 Bolts. I'll stick with it too. I'll hazard a guess that Lecavalier scores two, Stillman one, and Clymer 1. (I almost never partake in these predictions for games, but because I do like the Lightning as well...)
Nabby Trade Value: None, the goalie market is dead, the world is chalk full of good goaltending.
Why in the world is my man Lecavalier on a line with Roy and Fedotenko?! Where the hell is Modin? What about that kid Alexeev, he was talked up in prior years. I'm surprised Svitov didn't make it either.
