I agree. What is DeBoer going to do when Lehner lets 3 in within the first 12 minutes tomorrow?

 

Easy there getting my hopes up. Keep saying stuff like that, I'm going to hold you to it.

Nikolaj Ehlers (#27 in blue) is properly getting a lot of credit for holding the scrum back from the injured Evans.  

Man, Tom Wilson just can't help himself. He's not just a goon, but he undermines his actual ability when he pulls stupid shit like this. He should be out for awhile. But it's the NHL, and th

I’m having a hard time seeing this. First, you said someone is really going to get hurt one of these days, even though the kid is out with a concussion. Then, you said you were thinking of something m

Is Tampa a lock to win the cup?

Recent history would show that you should never call anyone a "lock".

I'm sure Tampa is a betting favorite right now.

The Isles laid an egg last night, and Barzal lost his cool, if you’re going to get a major, take the other guy with you, it’s that simple. He drops the stick, he probably gets the other guy to fight. Stupid stupid game last night.

That’s what happened to Varlamov last night.

No, the Isles in their history have stolen some Game 7s.
 

The Isles are that boxer that no matter how many you knock them down, they get back up. Tampa last I heard was down to 10 forwards for Game 7. 
 

If last night’s game was the last ever game in the Coliseum, what a way to close the old barn.

I love how @Billy Z posed his question the morning after NYI got blown out and you responded the day after they tied the series up in game 6.

I responded to the Game Five 8-0 blow out by Tampa.

See @billchao and overall I don’t think even if Tampa goes to the finals they are a lock to win the Cup. So, in general, no. Tampa is not a lock to win the Cup.

The Isles laid an egg in game 5, but even after giving up 12 goals in a row, picked themselves off the mat, stayed disciplined and won Game 6 and forced a winner-take-all Game 7 at Amalie.

And Montreal advances.  I know a few guys who will be overjoyed.

Two things prompted my comment, one was that they are the reigning Champs, and two 8-0 is quite a lopsided win.

Even Cup Champions lay an egg in a playoff game once in a while. 
 

If Tampa is down to 10 forwards for game 7, they’re really going to be depending on Vasilesky (sp). Point and Stamkos will try to take over for Tampa. It’s gonna either be a laugher or an epic 7th game.

Anybody want to go out on a limb and pick the winner and game score for tonight's hockey game?

Well that was a pretty comprehensive job by Tampa last night.

It was just constant pressure. No space for anyone to work. The Habs got to the point where they were shooting anything the moment they had the chance and missed the net with a ton of them. TB manages to be dynamic offensively and rarely out of position on defense. 

Plenty of teams lose Game One and come back, but Montreal is going to need some adjusting if Game Two is going to be any better.

Don’t they have a few superstars who just recovered from an injury that they can activate, @mcanadiens? 🙂

"Superstars"? 

I'm supposing there is a joke in there that I'm too dull to catch at the moment.

Guess Armia was scratched because he just came back from covid protocol. Haven't heard anything about Tatar, but I never would have thought to call either of those guys a superstar.

I think @iacas is making a TB joke. Because you know, salary cap circumvention is selectively punished around the league.

Ok. That makes sense.

As far as I understand the Kucherov situation, the NHL allows it and Tampa Bay took advantage. It's the definition of a loop hole.  You never like the people that exploit these things, but sort of wish your own club had managed something like that.

Another mess the NHL needs to clean up, but nothing can be done about it now.

    • I didn’t watch the video, but the thumbnail screenshot has him in position to hit a big block with that right elbow stuck behind him.
    • My home course closes its range for maintenance Monday mornings or Tuesday if a holiday falls on the Monday. The sign indicates they re-open by 1 p.m.  That makes sense for them. It's always a busy course, but evening leagues are really big business.  Closing at 3 p.m. seems a bit odd to me, but if that suits the course's clientele, that's what they'll do. I hate mats.  We usually get stuck with the damn things after October. It is a much better thing that the course close the range for a brief period of time once a week and keep the turf up to snuff.    
    • Replace the grip if you want, but a new putter won't matter (unless it makes you practice more).  There's some great putting and short game drills in chapter 9 of Every Shot Counts by Mark Broadie. His drills are also games, with scoring that measures objective skill level.   Also recommend The Putting Bible by Dave Pelz. 
    • A strange round of golf yesterday. I played from the red tees (plays just 5350 yards).  My ballstriking is not very crisp these days, but hopefully I can sort that out soon. It was a round of two halves, as usual. Front 9:  Could not hit fairways or greens at all on the front, 2/9 greens and 2/6 fairways, but still shot +2 on the front. That includes 2 shots in the bunker on hole 4, a horrible misshit that lead to a double on hole 7, topped my driver 80 yards twice and the only 2 fairways I hit were with short irons in hand. 11 putts on the front 9 says a lot about that tretch of holes.  Birdie on both par 5s on the front is allways nice.  37 shots, par 35 Back 9:  A little better ballstriking even though I hit 2 shots OB, leading to a tripple and a double, 4/7 fairway and 4/9 greens. The short game was more off here and I left a couple of chips a bit short. 17 putts is not as good as I'd like it to be. 1 threeputt, but I think I would threeputt from there more often than not, as it was a 60 foot downhill putt with a lot of break where I gave it a little to much speed. Birdie on hole 15 (short par 3) and on hole 17 was nice, and I missed a short birdieputt on, the tough par 3, 11. Had 165 yards in after a decent drive on the par 5 18, but managed the top the approach and miss the green from 90 yards after that and walk off with a bogey after also missing the 5 foot par save. 44 shots, par 37.  81 shots is not bad, but I make to many misstakes from tee, making golf a lot harder than it needs to be. I hit driver on 8 holes: 1 fairway hit (265 yards), 1 OB, hit short and low slices mostly except from the two topped 80 yard ones, avg. 240 yards today. My drives are usually 270-320 yards depending on wind and course, so my driving is not where it should be. My short game is not perfect, but it's certainly better than my hcp right now.  Playing a round at an away course today. There is a curse hanging over that course that needs to be lifted. Good luck me 😉  
    • Our range closes early on Sunday to do a “clean pick”, and reopens at 11:30 on Monday. It is mowed early Monday. The course is closed until noon on Monday’s.
