    I have a banner, logo, pennant and Daneyko bobble head that reside at my cubicle year round. They know they would probably have to fire me to get me to take them down :laugh:

    I think these are the four keys to the series:

    1. Devils PK against Tampa PP

    2. Coleman - Zajac - Noesen vs. Miller - Stamkos - Kucherov

    For the above 2, I'd take neutralizing them, but if they can shut either one down, that'll vastly increase the Devils chances of winning.

    3. Secondary scoring

    Zacha and Boyle's line need to be more productive than the Lightning bottom six of Killorn - Cirelli - Gourde and Kunitz - Paquette - Callahan.

    4. Goaltending

    Goaltending could sink either team. What Kinkaid are we getting and what Vasilevski are we getting?

    I'm not too concerned about Hall's line. Hall and Palmieri are too good not to be productive especially on the PP. I'd be concerned if they were going up against a ridiculous 200 foot player like Bergeron or Barkov or Kopitar, but to me, I don't foresee Palat - Point - Johnson being able to shutdown that line. My only concern would be if they could outscore them.
