    So the people who were in attendance at the game weren’t the only ones who had a clue that Lovejoy went into the Bolts box at first? Did the broadcast mention it?

    That confirmed for me that he was intoxicated today. Either that or suffering from some other unfortunate memory loss due to age.

    I felt like I spent too much of that 2nd period on my phone. Something that I don’t do during games, except at stoppages.

    If I were king I would scratch Gragsner. I’d send him home for the rest of the season. Can you say dead weight? How much do you think he’ll get on his next deal? His last two Rags years were a fluke. Sexy Leafs era stat line that he’s got going since he’s been here.

    Space Junk mother****er.

    Circling back to this since it appears Cory might get the game 3 start. This is as simple as it gets regarding expectations.

    Before we get to Amalie Arena, my buddy (Cage Helmet) and I have a meeting spot a few blocks away from the lots where we park, so we can park together. He lives 4 hours away and it’s out of his way to meet me at my house and ride with me. It’s even further for him. And he comes down on his bike and when we park together I can let him keep his helmet, riding gear and his backpack that he brings to store his game gear in my car during the game. So I got in front of him on the way to the lot and told the attendant that I’m paying for myself and the guy behind me to park. I told him don’t worry about it, it’s on me and he said “You don’t have to pay for me, I make a lot more than you do”.

    Well I bought the tickets for us and told him to just pay me back when he gets here and we see each other. So after the game he said “You don’t really need that $145 bucks back, do you?” so I told him “Sure I need it. I don’t have to pay for you. You make a lot more than I do”. :laugh:

    Since we have the last change in games 3 and 4 I would go with this lineup.

    Hall Hischier Bratt
    Maroon Zacha Palmieri
    Noesen Zajac Coleman
    Wood Boyle Grabner

    Greene Vatanen
    Mueller Severson
    Butcher Santini (obviously it’ll be Lovepoop)

    I wouldn’t mind Santini on that bottom pairing. He did well in that role last year.

    Santini hasn’t played against NHL pros in months though.

    Throwing him back into that pretty cold, and in his first playoff game to boot? That is just asking for failure. I don’t like the idea of setting kids up for failure.

    Better to just sit Lovejoy and keep Mueller and Moore in. I’ve never been a fan of Moore, but I don’t think Santini at this juncture is a better option.

    Would be a different story if we got Santini into some games down the stretch, but they chose not to do that.

    I’d be okay with starting Cory in game 3, but it needs to be on a short leash. Like a very short leash.

    A bad angle goal (or any pretty weak goal) a few minutes into the game and out he goes. Even if it’s just 1-0. Don’t wanna get embarrassed by being yanked at 1-0? Don’t give up some bull**** goal that’s gonna embarrass us like he did early in that game in San Jose. If it’s a goal he has no chance on like the first two against Washington then I’d excuse it.

    No coach is giving a goalie that short a leash. It isn’t happening.

    Gulutzan did last year in game 4 against Anaheim with Elliott.

    Bad angle goal a few minutes in, 1-0 score and Elliott was done for the night and the series. That was the series. Johnson wound up giving up one goal in 55 minutes or so and they lost 2-1.

    2 hours and 4 minutes? Lol. That first period seemed like a half court basketball game.

    Vatanen's hit on Callahan was quite a shot, leading immediately to his goal too.

    With Callahan's history of shoulder injuries, I am doubtful whether this series or the playoffs (if they move on) sees Callahan again. It looked like he's done. Either a dislocation or a fracture. This is a huge loss for Tampa.

    How much of how listless Tampa looked after Callahan went off was due to them just taking their foot off the gas, how much to missing him? He's quite an important grit guy for a team that often doesn't like to get its hands dirty.

    Hopefully the Devils third period represents a momentum swing in the series and not just Tampa sitting back once they had a four goal lead.

    Huge loss? He is a 4th line player with 6 goals all year. Yeah no not a big loss.
