Predictions for February

I'm really apprehensive about the next month. 12 games, 8 road, 4 home, all against tough Western Conference teams. How do you think we're gonna do?

I'm crossing my fingers and hoping for a winning record.........................

Normally I am an optimist, but I will consider it a success if we are above a wild card spot at the beginning of March.

If the PP becomes a threat again we should be able to survive Feb.

The Extra Point reports that the Bolts have a 99.1% chance of making the playoffs and only need go 14-19 the rest of the season.

We have got to fix are power play for sure. Who knows maybe the bolts wake up for bigger games as they fall asleep when lottery teams come to play them.

PK more important, but yes, PP picking it up would be nice. It's awful on the road, just like the PK.

If we show up in Feb. like we did tonight, we arguably could win them all.

In reality? I'd say we'll go 60/40 for wins/loss.

It's hard to predict what will happen, hopefully the team is up for it. I am nervous about the 3 sets of b2b that they will play against some really hard teams. I mean:

Kings and Ducks at home
Sharks and Kings away
Coyotes and Avs away

Which goalie will we pick for those games, I mean if Nabby lets in 4 goals against the flyers how will he do against those top teams? It's pretty much a pick your poison thing and it could get ugly...unless, and this would be my wish, that we bring Vasy or Guds up for the month of February, could be a good test for them. But like I said, we'll see how it goes, will be a tough month either way.

If the PP works hard and scores close to a goal per game, and the road PK is middle of the pack, we'll be okay. But we've been a different team on the road this year, and that's with a hodgepodge of opponents. A west coast road trip looks like a nightmare right now. This is where I think the spotlight is on a coach's motivational powers.

One small benefit is that we're finally going to get some days off between games. We had a pretty tiring schedule in the first half +.

As for a prediction, I'll say the home games buoy us: 6-5-1.

3-1 at home, and a respectable 3-4-1 on the road.

Can't see us coming out of February on top of the Atlantic though. Aside from a few games, Montreal's February is comparatively easy. Buffalo, Arizona, and NJ to start. Edmonton. Two games vs. Toronto.

Luckily, Detroit is in a lot tougher and have 9 of 11 games on the road and they'll be finishing the month with their own west coast trip.

I think this is the run this team uses to come together and start something special.

We go 7-3-1 or better.

Tue Feb 3, 2015 Lightning at Blues 8:00 PM
Thu Feb 5, 2015 Lightning at Stars 8:30 PM
Sat Feb 7, 2015 Kings vs Lightning 5:00 PM
Sun Feb 8, 2015 Ducks vs Lightning 5:00 PM
Tue Feb 10, 2015 Lightning at Predators 8:00 PM

Sun Feb 22, 2015 Lightning at Avalanche 7:00 PM
Fri Feb 27, 2015 Blackhawks vs Lightning 7:30 PM

bold = back-to-backs
blue = road game

Boy, what a rough month! Back-to-back against the Kings and Ducks at home, followed by 3 games in 4 days in California, followed by another back-to-back in Glendale and Denver - all that during a 5-game road trip in 8 days. To top it all off we'll also face the Preds, Blues and Hawks in February.

Is .500 even possible?

It's a tough road, but if we want to be considered an elite team, we should perform in this instance. We're (relatively) healthy, with just a #4 and #5 Dman out, so the only excuses we can use if we lose is the other team was better.

This is the test - let's see how good this team really is.

You forgot our #1 Center is playing hurt and that line is not producing offensively because of it.
