BoltProspects: If you were to ask an outsider to pick out the player for the #TBLightning who was playing their first NHL game, no way Gudas gets picked.
BoltProspects: Hard work usually beats talent when talent doesn't work hard. On paper, TB (and everyone) should be crushing FLA. Dineen has the effort up.
BoltProspects: Thanks to @mikegallimore for running this account tonight. Nice to see the Lightning win again, though they were outworked all night.
BoltProspects: Chad: Good first game from Gudas. Lots of poise and didn't look out if place at all. Also didn't play timid, pinching in when able.
BoltProspects: Alright. Turning the account back over to Chad, reverting back to @mikegallimore. It's been fun, per usual. Thanks for reading/interacting.
BoltProspects: @ShawnDulin Wow.
BoltProspects: Killorn had played 19:26 and 21:28 in the two previous games coming into tonight. Now at 4 G, 6 A in 16 GP.
BoltProspects: Almost neglected to mention, Killorn w/ another impressive showing, albeit in more controlled minutes. Finished w/ 2 helpers in 16:08.
BoltProspects: Tonight, TB essentially pulled off hockey's version of the Rope-A-Dope. Or something to that effect.
BoltProspects: *For FLA, 16 missed, not on goal
BoltProspects: FLA finished the night with 68 shot attempts (39 on goal, 13 blocked, 16 on goal). TB had 33 (13 on goal, 11 blocked, 9 missed).
BoltProspects: TB credited with 40 hits to FLA's 20 tonight. Read into that what you will.
BoltProspects: @CaustinRC Obviously, the specific numbers from tonight far overshoot realistic expectations on a game-by-game basis.
BoltProspects: @CAustinRC Meant to convey was Lindback allowing a couple goals, posting a decent SV% and being a difference-maker must have been the ideal.
BoltProspects: @CAustinRC My fault for lack of clarity.
BoltProspects: @CAustinRC I get that. You're getting stuck on the exact save % rather than what I intended, which is the gist of what the numbers imply.
BoltProspects: @CAustinRC "More in line" does not mean exactly.
BoltProspects: @Brett_Klein Again, live, the hit looked a lot worse. Gave initial reaction to that, then followed up after watching replay. End of story.
BoltProspects: @NYRFan70 Well, look at career numbers. Not too far apart and KW with more NHL experience. That was the goal.
BoltProspects: WEIRD. I was just looking up players who have worn No.75 and saw Timmins. Remembered him from Windsor. Now this: http://t.co/yQG0el4l3V
