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.
Interesting. Thanks for the feedback. I sometimes get sloppy with my grip so I’ll concentrate on that more at setup. I know the proper grip but sometimes it helps to go back and review fundamentals.
Point 2 is something that I had an issue with way back on my first swing thread post so maybe it has crept back in. I’ll have to pay more attention to that. Thanks!!
