So far this is a lot more like preseason reffing than playoffs.

The players were in post-season form. The refs were in pre-season form.

Then again, if you are a team with good special teams, maybe you take that and run with it.

Yeah if the Lightning can count on having that many power plays I'm licking my chops.

Lineup news from Joe Smith:
Quote:
- Victor Hedman will play, with Cooper said he didn't "skip a beat" after working out on own for week
- Steven Stamkos won't, though team still hopeful he'll be in for Game 1
- Vasilevskiy likely starting all three round robins

He got nicked up (a different injury) in camp. Should be back for the actual knock out playoff rounds.

They looked awful the last 30 minutes or so of that game. Came completely unglued after the soft goals Vasiy gave up. They should've gotten the three goal lead and cruised through that final frame. Instead they just wasted a lot of energy on a Round Robin game they had in hand.

Not happy. That sucked. Thank God they didn't completely blow it, or the ghosts of Columbus would've been out and visiting tonight.

Might of helped if they would of got one PP opportunity from the refs considering they called crap like the Point penalty. There were at least half a dozen blatant things that could of been called in the last couple periods.

Looks like another postseason where the refs swallow their whistles and nullify our special teams.
