Bolts win 10 straight.
Flyers did a good job in blocking shots, disrupting plays, and even had some real good scoring chances that were foiled by Vasy or bad luck.
Bolts took advantage on a goal by Maroon that Niskanen didn't flag down out of the air properly, and it was all the difference.
TB stays hot, but the Flyers showed why they have one of the best, if not the best home record in the league....they simply didn't give the Lightning very much to work with and played them tough.
I'm posting early so Tropical Fruit Girl doesn't ball me out again (Smile)!
I haven't seen posted odds. We are surprisingly close in points (Tampa 54; Flyers 52). Tampa is 4th in the league in scoring, 9th in defense. That tells me we need to play tight D and hope our goalie is "non-road."
I have always gotten a kick out of the quote, "its not worth it". It always seems to come AFTER the first punch has been thrown. Why wasnt it worth it BEFORE the fight happened? And just once, I'd like to know when it is worth it
Well for one I don't really know about when other players have had babies so I don't know if it affects them or not. The only players I follow are Flyers.
Also I don't care to try to figure out if Ryan Getzlaf's dips in production throughout his career correlate with his children being babies.
It is not unreasonable to think this could be part of the problem. This could be a contributing factor for a noticeable decline , not an excuse.
Sorry to hear about what happened to Uncle Ben later... 😎
The Genovese story - while tragic - has at least some of its origins in "sensational" news coverage:
That said, the concept that "all that is necessary for evil to triumph is for good [people] to do nothing" holds water.
And, I don't know about you, but I see several people trying to intervene. And whatever video evidence
