      Tampa scores with 41.6 and hung on to win 3-2.  That’s ok, I’d like to see the Rangers win it at home.

      Rangers are GOOD…Tampa facing another must win Tuesday! Top 2 pairings of Fox-Lindgren & Trouba-Miller are one of the few teams that rival⚡️dominant trio of left Defenseman: Hedman, McD & Sergachev ☝️

      Fox is a really good player, The other 3 aren’t even in the same conversation as the Tampa dmen. Rangers defense is pretty much all about Shesterkin

      True about Fox, I’ve been impressed at times with Trouba during these playoffs (although he had a lousy game today) taking 3 penalties, he knows how to throw an open ice hit, a lost art. But agree, Rangers D is largely Shesterkin.

        Yeah I think ppl often conflate good goaltending and good D. The lightning definitely outchanced them and Igor made a ton of great saves, definitely more than Vasilevsky.

        Fox is a very skilled offensive defenseman.  Although you can’t argue they have played much better in the playoffs with Lindgren than without. They really picked back up when he returned from those three (?) games he was out after his injury.  I think they said today he’s a +10 for the playoffs this year.   Not to take away from Igor, he’s easily the MVP so far.

          Kucherov was the difference, power play goal & brilliant pass on GWG. Great finish by Palat, (evidently) it’s his 10th GWG in playoffs for career.

          Kucherov and McDavid are head-and-shoulders the best offensive forwards in the league. Every time they have the puck it’s dangerous.

            I have more nasal hair than Makar has on his baby face. Though he is one good hockey player.

              Cale Makar is arguably the Avs most important player! He keys their offense!

              They might be doing Cassidy a favor. The Bruins look to be in for a rough go next year

                Sad to see a player as great as Draisaitl playing hard with clearly a bad wheel. Nugent Hopkins SCORES! Oilers lead 2-1 with three minutes left in 2nd period. I don’t like the Avs one bit, but they have a really good squad! Now McDavid SCORES! 3-1

                  I love Lindgren, but I’d say Draisaitl is more dinged up

                      Not wanting to skate or touch the conference trophies is so childish. It’s like a Minnesota high school team not wanting to touch or celebrate the section championship trophy.

                        I can’t believe he played 2 years of college, seems like he stepped in and had a big impact immediately but maybe that’s why.

                          I feel Smith was the Oilers achilles heel all  Playoffs long.

                                  Out of curiosity how many of these guys still don’t wear visors?  I’m too lazy to google search.  😂

                                      The Rangers are screwed. Once Tampa figures out how to beat you they step on your neck.

                                      So, the visor discussion got me thinking about both goalie masks and skater helmets. The last maskless goalie was a guy named Andy Brown. The date of his last NHL game (and thus the last ever) was April 7, 1974, but the guy played three more years in the old WHA (all without a mask).

                                      This article gives the last ten guys to not wear a helmet.

                                      Thanks for posting!  Your helmet needs a haircut. 😂

                                      Way back when they didn’t really lift the puck like they do now.   And just like baseball bats I can only imagine how much more dangerous todays stick technology is in making that puck fly!  Although unlike the MLB, I have not heard any rumors of tweaking the puck to make it fly differently….yet….;)

                                      Imo… Tonight’s winner will eventually win the series and play Colorado for the Cup. I want NYR to win, but I think TB is the only one who can actually challenge the Avs.

                                      Similar to amateur level hockey and full shield/cage or just a visor. Canadians laugh that Americans wear a full shield or cages.

                                        1-1 after 2 periods. Lindgren scores for Rangers, Sergachev for Bolts.

                                        Great power play goal by the Rangers to tie.  Then immediately a lucky bounce off stamkos’ leg after a great stop by Igor. 🤬

                                        Tampa vs Colorado.   Cant cheer for the avs, not sure I want to cheer for Tampa either.

                                        Tampa it is… they didn’t act like children and skated the Prince of Wales Trophy compared to Colorado with the Clarence Campbell.

                                          One hell of a series! Rangers have nothing to hang their heads about, they competed hard & they are a really good young team! In the end, theLightning are a mentally relentless, talented, gritty, experienced. And they are the CHAMPS until somebody beats them 4 times…

                                          Avs fans are annoying… very UND like when regionals are at Fargo. Everyone tries be a comedian to be on tv.

                                          Kuemps could prove me wrong but I would bet on the other goaltender skating away with the win….

                                              The way the game unfolded, if Avs would have lost. it would have been a huge setback. They got two bounces and to their credit capitalized. I think this series goes six or seven, not sure who wins, Avs play with tremendous pace & are a damn good team !

                                                COL forecheck took over at the end of the game. Would have been tough if they controlled the play at the end of a home game and gave up a goal on one of Tampa chances to lose.

                                                  If the Avs win game 2, you might be right. But…Vas let in 2 uncharacteristic goals last night & Tampa still got the game to OT. Winning goal was set up on a turnover after not just one but two bizarre, bad bounces. Avs also got a gift 5-3 PP, which resulted in their 3rd goal. Avs forecheck, the speed of it did give Tampa problems, they’ll need to adjust. Makar was the best player in the ice, his lateral movement & ability to explosively jump into the play offensively is a sight to see. But again, the trick isn’t beating Tampa once or twice, (or 3 times like Islanders last year & Leafs this year) it’s beating them 4 times, which nobody has done the past 15 series they’ve played ☝️

                                                  Vas got it going, but being down 0-2 early was a tough way to start. Tampa has a way of settling down and coming back. Last night, it felt like it took everything Colorado had to get the win, and they had the crowd.

                                                  Game 2 will be big for Tampa. They don’t want to start in a 2-game hole.

                                                  I still think CO’s weakness is in the goal. Tampa needs to get pucks to the net, although that’s hard to do when you’re defending against a speedy team.

                                                        Tampa looks like they played last night

                                                        Tampa looks like they are playing the second game of a double header.

Avs have badly outplayed them in the mile high city. And when guys who aren’t the main stars are having career playoff games for the Avs, it’s a bad sign. I’ll be surprised if they get swept, but right now have to admit a 4 game series looks more likely than 6 or 7.

It’s too bad Tampa can’t get more shots on net. I still think Colorado is vulnerable in goal, but it won’t hurt them if Tampa is always defending.
