    You think Gary cares about rivalries? He wants his top stars deep in the playoffs and even better if a Canadian team is involved.

    Also, listening to NHL network radio this morning. These hacks haven't mentioned the spear once but they have been talking about the Sergachev elbow which didn't even look intentional.

    Travis Zajac has his legs this series, been one of our best forwards. I still believe he is such an important part of this team.

    I just wanna say again I'm disappointed in the introduction. It really was nothing special. I love Dano, but I really don't want to hear him tell me to "rise".

    Another observation, Moore was just bad last night. Shanks a shot at the blue line, turns it over, chance the other way and takes a hooking penalty.

    I’m still amped from last night. The energy at the end of that game was something we haven’t seen since 2012

    If we’re going to have a chance, more Guys need to contribute, offensively and physically. Wake up Palmieri, Zacha and Wood. On defense Vats & Butcher have been solid, while I thought Severson looked good last night. I have a lot less faith in Moore, Greene and LJ. They need to be better.

    Yes he did. That's the only part of the game where I like him. He should be playing limited minutes at ES.

    I agree about the offense. We need to mix up the lines IMO. As much as I like the Zajac line, we need more speed up the middle and Zacha is not playing well enough to justify a roster spot. Move Coleman to 3C.

    Hall - Hischier - Bratt
    Johansson - Zajac - Palmieri
    Wood - Coleman - Noesen
    Grabner - Boyle - Gibbons

    Sit Zacha and Maroon until they want to show more effort.

    That's a much faster forward group, and very well balanced.

    Maroon should absolutely not be scratched. He provides an element that no one on the team can replace. A massive body that can screen the goalie one second, and effectively switch to playmaker behind the net the next. He's got great hands behind the net and along the boards.

    I think you’re too hung up on his lack of speed. Maroon has done solid work at 5 on 5 in the offensive zone too. He’s great behind the net.

    Second goal does not happen without Maroon.

    I thought Vatenan had a number of poor plays and turnovers.

    Severson was playing irresponsible again. He went for a totally unnecessary hit in the neutral zone and missed which led to the partial breakaway and multiple scoring chances where Cory appeared to get hurt. He could have single handedly cost us the game there. It's amazing how people overlook his glaringly bad decision making.

    I still can't get the scenes and sounds from last night out of my head.

    I am a firm believer that the fans have been helping will this team to victory all season.

    Zajac played over 24 minutes last night. Jesus Christ. I’ll eat crow in him. He is excelling in his role, out of the 1C into a shutdown role.

    I miss that.

    you all can fall for the ‘I’m fine’ routine again with cory…I’m not. he did not look fine, he hasn’t looked fine in a while, and if he isn’t 100% he shouldn’t start game 4. and if he isn’t fine and he doesn’t start game 4, that sucks, because he just turned in a brodeur-esque performance. but if his nutsack is being held together by gorilla glue and staples (and this racing stripe, which I feel is pretty sharp) he needs to sit for at least a game

    Vatanen looked surprising nervous last night. He got rattled by their forecheck. At least once he had the puck alone in our end, and nearly coughed it up one on one when a forward jumped him - I expect a defenseman to confidently handle a forward one on one in that situation - I think it ended with him just throwing it into center ice. His short breakout passes weren't clean on the tape in our end, and on offense he often didn't get his shots through to the net. He can play better.

    I very much doubt that Cory's issue after the collision with McDonagh was just cramps or tightness. It looked like a knee maybe and luckily he was able to play through it. I expect they will crash him repeatedly next game, if he's good to go, as I expect he will.

    Butcher's goal last night may have saved the playoffs for us. If we don't convert the 5 on 3, my gut tells me we don't win that game. And Maroon was 50% of that goal. The screen plus the beautiful wrist shot. Butcher's signing and development is almost as big a story for this team this year as Nico.

    The atmosphere was electric for almost the entire game. The only time there was little going on in the crowd was for a minute or so after Tampa scored their second goal of the game. It seemed like the wind was taken out of the building. JMO.
