Are they going to suspend that Pens player? Being a Lightning fan, I'm not too sympathetic to teams losing a couple players...

Yup. Letang suspended one game. Fair. Also, I could watch these Player Safety videos all day.

Sweet win by the Lightning... Can't believe New York is complaining about hits after the hits they put out...

For the Lightning based on regular season, it would seem Pens are better matchup for them. But really you take what you get. Another long layoff for the Lightning...

I missed game 5 due to a Pink Floyd tribute band laser symphony concert. I did check scores between sets. It seems I made the right choice. Hopefully the Pens can wrap it up Tuesday night. I don't want to see A) A game 7, although we did beat the Caps in 7 games last time we played, and B) Another game 7 in Washington.

I doubly don't want to see them lose this series. That would mean back to back loses after going up 3-1 in a series. Either way, whomever wins this series will win the East.

Our goalie just out-played a Vezina finalist, and is only just barely behind Bishop in stats this season. Relevance. Fair point about Canadian input. I doubt they will think that since you just won a series sweep.

We shall see Friday how game one goes.

Curious to see if Stralman makes it into the lineup Friday, I think Bolts have been playing coy with the injury report since they didn't need these guys. Good to see J.T. Brown back too...

Now if only Stamkos makes an appearance, although that might do more to screw up some of the chemistry...

Two more days...

I don't know what we put on the ice, but that was the absolute worse game I've seen this whole playoff series.

Definitely his knee, I did almost exactly the same thing once and they told me I was lucky I didn't blow up my ACL. Still took a long time to get better, and the truma caused a huge cyst that needed major surgery. Nasty. Too bad, doesn't matter how good he his if he always gets hurt when you need him in the playoffs. What is it, 2 or 3 years in a row now? I always questioned his skating, even though he's big and a good puck handler, he just seems to trip himself up a lot. Hopefully it's not anything major, but based on how he was writhing around on the ice I'd be surprised to see him back this round, if at all.

I figured Pitt would have trouble with TB's team speed. Caps weren't as quick, and were more built for Blues style hockey. TB's backup goalie has to get better at staying big with traffic though or he could really get lit up. Looks like it could be pretty dirty/vicious series if first game means anything. Wouldn't be surprised if Cally gets a game for that hit on Letang either.

Latest report is Bishop is day to day, so hopefully back in a couple games. A guy that can play through a groin pull has my respect.

Cally not suspended, I'd rather not see any more bad hits on either side, I don't feel like that's the Lightning's game, but after playing the Islanders and Red Wings, I think they got in the habit of throwing out a lot of hits.
