I've mentioned a few times that the reason the Panthers struggled in the regular season was their penalty killing, no doubt a result of being a heavily penalized team. Hence in the penalty-suppressed climate of the playoffs the rest of their game—which is quite good—is shining through.I think the Panthers are exactly as advertised - top 10 offense, meh defense, old & inconsistent goaltending. They'll be a handful every round they stay alive.
I'm just confused why our defense couldn't handle a sneeze, really, all series.
I'm not ready to count out the Leafs, but you wonder if they'll start grabbing their sticks a little too tight like the Bruins did.This Panthers team is not afraid of any situation, even if they’re not really clicking at first. They’re going to end up taking both in Toronto here.
Yeah.He would definitely want the two recent expansion teams meeting in the conference finals. They might get $1 billion franchise fee for the teams in the next expansion.
They have won every coin flip game they have played so far in the playoffs. Let's see how long there kick continues.Florida is playing great but they are also living a charmed life. Pucks are going off Bobrovsky’s mask, the cross bar, through his legs but getting kicked away.
Canada can't bomb Florida. At least not in the winter, we'd take out half of our own population.Maybe the fact that Florida had to basically play like it was the playoffs for a month or two has given them an edge. Hard to sustain another month I imagine.
If Florida ends up knocking out the Leafs and the Oilers, Trudeau might bomb us. Now that the Bruins are out, if Canada doesn’t end its 30 year losing streak, it may never.
