    I don't have any love for the Panthers, TBH. Hate the Bolts, but both of these teams are dangerous AF. I'm rooting they beat each other senseless for as long as possible.

    I'm 3-1 now thanks to Pointe. This game had a bit of everything for a hockey fan. I'll take the broadcast team again for the Caps.

    The Pointe goal reminded me of Bonino.

    Bennett being an idiot probably cost them. You don’t want Tampa on the powerplay boys...

    Yep. 3 of their goals were PP.
    I thought the number of hits was high but it's actually lower than the other playoff games. Maybe they don't know how to count in Florida

    Wow that FLA/TBL was a Barn.Burner, most entertaining game I've seen in a long time, If anyone missed it, watch a replay if you can; non-stop action and chances.
    Bennet should've got 5+game for that board/charge in the 3rd -- full speed run at dood
    74 seconds away from all 4 going to OT (and the first 3 already set the record for consecutive OT's to start a playoff year)

    And the crowd noise, awesome! First time it really felt like a loud crowd since pre-pandemic; 9K in FLA got their money's worth (hopefully safely)


    Great 1st 2 days of Playoff Hockey!

    Need to avoid taking penalties if you want to beat Tampa. I don't think they are nothing special 5-on-5 especially with rusty Kucherov but if you take penalties they can beat you on the PP. That PP unit moves the puck so well and has weapons on both sides. Still i think the Caps showed you how to shut them down 5-on-5 back in 2018. They are slightly better personnel wise now but they still employ that same system and still have Cooper in charge who isn't exactly great at adapting to different situations.

    If the Panthers stay out of the box they can beat them.

    How Tampa could cheat the salary cap all season and not play Kuch until now is some shit. Wow he’s still a beast

    Yeah it's total bullshit. They need to change the rules to prevent this kind of crap

    I mean the guy's scoring pace before the injury had been absolutely enormous by any modern standards. There was zero doubt he'd return as a beast he is.

    Beer leagues have rules to prevent this sort of thing, why can't the NHL? Suggestion:

    If a player is on LTIR, he must be activated before the trade deadline to be eligible for the playoffs, unless the team can fit his cap hit after the deadline but before the playoffs. So a scrub or aging vet (Lundy) who makes $1M and fits under the Cap could rejoin for the playoffs without playing in the RS, but if a player would not have fit in the RS and misses the whole season he cannot rejoin in the playoffs. Call it the Kucherov Clause.

    In the Caps case they would not have been able to fit anyone like Lundy or Kempny because they ran right up to the cap. Kucherov would have had to play (or fit under the cap) prior to the deadline to qualify for the playoffs. But in some cases, a team could save the cap space to fit the player in post deadline and have him only in the playoffs. Easy peasy.

    The Blackhawks did the same thing with Patrick Kane a few years back. Can’t remember if it was one of their cup years but it helped them tremendously to acquire guys at the TDL.

    Kucherov being out helped Tampa navigate their tight salary cap this offseason.

    It's crap and it's a loophole in the rules. Almost as bad as the Chicago Cap Circumventers.

    Anyone else blocked from commenting on the Isles-Pens series in the Playoffs forum? I see the Caps-Broons and all the other series.

    I guess I have fallen victim to pre-crime? Lol.

    I didn't want to post anything. I usually stay away from other series threads in the playoffs. I just wanted to observe Pens fans freaking out. :D
