    Seems like Tampa is finally getting their **** together this season. Bad timing to play them at their house. Gonna take a huge consistent effort to pull out a W on the road tonight.

    Yeah, with us stumbling and them getting their house in order, I don't like the looks of this one. Would be nice if we stole one here. Panthers are playing decent hockey too so it doesn't get any easier.

    Will be interesting to see what lines are rolled out in the morning skate. I'd say Ross will probably come off Barzy's line, but I'm not sure what the great alternative is, TBH.

    Its pretty much a foregone conclusion that Carter Verhaege is going to score the GWG, right?

    Important game; team has been inconsistent, don’t want them to continue the trend. Teams creeping up.

    ‘MUST WIN’ in before the trite...ok I’ll stop...for now.

    Yes, fair enough. They need to get going together or separate.

    Just saw that Tyler Johnson is out and Curtis Mc (I never spell his name right) was the first goalie off the ice for TBL. I'd say that's a good thing but we scored 4 goals in 3 games against him last year in the playoffs so not sure that's a bonus for us.

    **** Kucherov. That guy is a piece of ****.

    I hope he doesn't get hurt, but is run through the glass tonight and decides to spend the rest of the game on the bench for safety.

    4-2 good guys.

    I don't mind Dal Colle replacing Komarov. There is probably a little more offensive potential with MDC than with Komarov.

    And I saw that too:

    Looks like Dobson could be used on PP1?

    Will it help them score a goal, or just help the pretty passing display?

    There is definitely more potential, but will that translate to better results? So far MDC has not actualized his potential and has yet to establish himself as an offensive threat, in any form.

    That Tampa 4th line has been awfully productive. Their depth and finishers could embarrass us tonight especially with Varlamov in net - any passengers tonight and were toast...hope Trotz knows this

    He's just been a little ***** of a player for years now. He's the new Kris Letang. Very skilled, but when things doesn't go his way, he starts slashing and being a prick. He's been quoted as saying he wishes he could play the Islanders all the time because of how easy we were to play against. That plus him playing like a little ***** puts him in my top 5 least favorite players.

    He also got into it with Mayfield last year too before running to the Bench.
