My beloved Tampa Bay Lightning are down 2-0 in their series with the Columbus Blue Jackets, losing both their games on home ice. For a team that tied the record for regular-season wins at 62, that never dropped back-to-back games all year, that has a seemingly endless well of talent, it’s an absolutely gobsmacking situation. Plenty of teams have come back from two games down in the playoffs. Some teams have even come back from three games down.
Today, the National Hockey League's Board of Governors voted to approve Seattle as the 32nd NHL Franchise for the 2021-22 season. -NHL SEATTLE Hot damn! It's about time. It's going to be a long three years...
This is mere speculation, but I completely condone it. As much as I hate the thought of Yzerman leaving my beloved Bolts, the prospect of him as Seattle’s GM would be very exciting. 🏒
My favorite fantasy hockey podcast hosts are recording their first “audio almanac”, a series of one-hour podcasts about each NHL team’s 2018/19 fantasy hockey outlook. It’s only $15. You should totally get in on this. keepingkarlsson.com/almanac 🏒
Well, it was a hell of a game, but congratulations to the Washington Capitals. I was really pulling for Vegas, but the Caps dominated four top-notch teams to win the Stanley Cup. Their forechecking, physical play, and disciplined defense was truly impressive. And Ovi’s passion seemed to lift his entire team to another level. It still stings not to see the Bolts come out on top, but at least they got bested by the ultimate champs.
