Don't worry, it's not like we actually think that.

They play a swarming defensive game that requires a lot of energy. They dont just sag and back it in toward the crease. So, they are a big first period team and they dont bring much in the 3rd.

that is in part because when they are ahead they pack 5 players in the neutral zone.

where are you reading that? all i read is that they think we(caps fans) are dismissing them and we are in for it. that their offense and defense is as good as the caps and roloson is better than neuvirth. sounds to me like they expect to win the series.

i am not reading a lot of wo is me from them.

however, if you like i can certainly post up some "who's your daddy?"

You might’ve run on a little tough luck baby
Don’t you sweat it
Everything is waiting inside for you
You know I got it
So come and get it

Who’s your daddy, who’s your baby?
Who’s your buddy, who’s your man?

Tampa's offense may be equal, but where are they getting this defense thing? They are playing a gimmick to minimize how bad they are.

The worst part of this match-up is I have no hatred for TB right now. I like Stevie Y and what he has done to the team.

its because you are in edmonton. if you were around here when the caps lost to the lightning in previous playoffs, you wouldnt feel that way. i hate the lightning. not quite like the penguins, but its pretty strong.

I may be in Edmonton, But I am a diehard fan for almost 28 years. We may have lost to them, but I don't have that hatred for them. It is definately not as strong as my hatred for Pittsburgh and Philadelphia!

My hate for the Lightning is nowhere near that of the Penguins. When Stamkos first started scoring goals, I was rooting for him (as long as it wasn't against the Caps). I can't say that about any Penguin, ever.

I don't even really hate them. They're just annoying.

Most of the last two decades has firmed up my hate for the Guins - I doubt Tampa will ever match it in my lifetime.

I hated that choking caps team and refs more than tampa at the time. Not feeling much hate for tamps atm. At least vs. the Pens or the Habs there would be some legit hate flowing.

6-2 caps. Ov(3) backs sturm laich. Ov and backstrom with 4 points each. I'm feeling an early goal by ov's line and a great start. Arnott won't let them come out slow
