    Carolina looked to be too worried about trying to beat Vasilevsky with screens and deflections. Hakstolian shots don't work nearly often enough to beat a team like TB.

    Unfortunately the Flyers are where fun goes to die smeared in its own poop.

    I completely disagree. It was incredibly boring for a playoff game. Keith Jones even just called it a boring game.

    Carolina may have outshot Tampa, but they weren’t good chances & Tampa barely broke a sweat. The only excitement was when Carolina pulled the goalie.

    Just an awful playoff series so far.

    Avs vs Bolts is going to be epic or a quantum field entropic failure : Dark Matter warping the space-time continuum until it wrenches out the Dark Energy onto a scalar manifold which will leave a Boltzmann statistical thermodynamic conundrum.

    Keith Jones' idea of a good time is Robert f***ing Hogg feebly rubbing guys.

    What was exciting about the game besides the last couple of minutes with the goalie pulled?

    There was minimal physicality, minimal dangerous offensive opportunities. It was much more like a run-of-the-mill regular season game than a 2nd round playoff game. This series has paled in comparison to Boston-Islanders.

    Yeah, looks like this is going to be a short series. The Hurricanes are good enough to beat teams like Nashville and the Islanders, but they can't beat the top teams.

    Then how did they take down a top tier Caps team?

    TB played excellent defense last night. Carolina helped that by seeking to generate from the perimeter off deflections/screens/rebounds. Apparently Rod had commented about how Vas is the best in the league currently and they needed to find ways to beat him. Based on what they're capable of doing, it looked like part of a gameplan to do that.

    Two high skill teams going at it and playing excellent positional defense is a good time

    The Capitals were ousted by the Bruins in round 1. Carolina played Nashville.

    And on the subject of Washington, they aren’t a top tier team anymore, regardless. They’re past their prime & mediocre defensively.

    im calling it it's going to a tampa and colorado cup series, i still think tampa is going to win it though because of vissey. i like grubauer but his inexperience in the cup finals could be his weakness.

    Which year did you think I was talking about?

    Caps were a top team in 2019, when Carolina eliminated them. To say they can't beat top teams is nonsense. They obviously can.

    Even if the Flyers don't go up, if someone like Wallstedt, Lysell, Johnson or Sillinger dropped to us, I'd be happy as hell.

    The Caps lose in the first or second round every year but that one fluke year. Makes it hard to use them as a measuring stick.

    People talk about how much the Islanders dominated us in the bubble playoffs, but they totally steamrolled Washington before that.

    Are there any sons of former players that go on to be as expected or better? I feel like it’s a minus.

    The Islanders under Trotz are a playoff meat grinder.

    Carolina has swept them recently as well, if we'd like to use them to measure instead.

    So losing in 7 to the Islanders wasn't actually that bad? Good to know.

    It depends on how you lose. I think you know that, but you value snark over substance.

    They won 3 games in overtime. Had only a single game where they had the better xGF%. It's cute when people mention getting to game 7 as an accomplishment.
