Of course this was the one playoff game I attend this year..

SUMMARY:
1st period was great. We played like Tampa Bay and Columbus played like Columbus. I really loved the physicality and our puck possession.
...

and then we stopped playing.

2nd period kinda flew by, except for Foligno's goal. Still felt pretty confident heading into the 3rd.

But then Tampa Bay forgot this was the playoffs, and just gave up.

That Savard goal was admittedly pretty beautiful. It hurt to see my favorite player Hedman get dangled like that.

After it was 3-2, it felt like we all expected Columbus to score. So of course they do, tied at 3.

And then 4-3 thanks to Seth Jones.

NOTES:
- Cirelli line scored 2 goals tonight. Killorn looks poised to have another good playoffs.
- Hedman played like ****
- We need Strals back
- The fans who threw their noisemakers need to grow up
- We were up 3-0, we're clearly capable of beating Columbus. We have multiple times already this year.
- Girardi should not be on the first pair
- CBJ penalty kill was red-hot at the end of the season and was again tonight

Stralman needs to get back... I did see Cernak out with hedman a few times but behind stralman your right side gets thin.

The forums are rarely used here. I think you also magically healed stralman and put him in the lineup and took out Cernak so technically this is an agm....

Didn't offend me at all, just letting you know we have forums for this and tagged Banks so he can move it for it for you.

Here is a summery.

Bob shut you out after the 1st period.

A good goalie who is playing well changes any match up.
On top of it they just physically out played TB.
Foligno was a wrecking ball out there. CBJ was pounding the smaller forwards on TB. This is going to be a longer series than I think TB fans want to admit. They could even lose it.

Even GMs actually watch games AHole. Go upstairs and get some cookies from Mom will ya.

Tampa concerns are 1. Health of Hedmen .. was shell of himself.. issue is ribs/mid section.. he couldn't pivot.. 2. Problem of Tyler Johnson and Gourde and rest of shrimps and 3. Disappearing act of Stamkos .. again .. thank God for 3rd line or it could have been worse.. Girardi shouldn't even be dressing.

Maybe Girardi shouldn't be on the first pair, but you're not also saying he shouldn't be in the lineup, are you?

The last three forum posts were probably the last time Tampa fans were pissed at their team. I find the analysis very acceptable in the widely read ACGM.

Bob made some confidence-boosting saves early in 2nd and we just stopped playing after that. We need to play full 60 mins on Friday and bring that regular season performance.

I agree with your notes...

Hedman played really bad, but it was his first game after some time and he had more than 25 mins TOI. I expect much better game from him tomorrow.
We indeed need Strallsy back in the line-up. Pair him with Hedy, keep 27-81 together, Sergachev with Rutta or Girardi.
Really liked that 3rd Cirelli's line.

Hedman was horrible in the third last night, just terrible. Did he get hit on the head earlier?

post in the appropriate location, the reason those other forums are seldom used is because of posts like this in the wrong section.

Calling me an ahole is the pot calling the kettle black.
And I agree the injuries played a role in Hedman’s bad play, but he still played badly. You basically just agreed with my notes..
