91+86 Equals Lightning In Five

May 7th, 2018
For those of you unhappy with Todd’s analysis of Stamkos and Kucherov in the previous podcast, were you happy with how those guys picked it up in Games Four and Five? Didn’t it make the Lightning a complete team and give the Bruins little hope of winning the series?
The truth is not always what you want to hear, but in this case it was the final piece to what was in essence a Lightning sweep after a Game One that was more like most of the regular season games the last two seasons against Boston. So Brad Marchand can lick his golf ball, his caddy or just a piece of candy for the next few months while the Lightning play on and await the winner of the Capitals-Penguins. Todd also talks in this podcast about who he thinks the Lightning would be better off playing in the East Finals…and it may surprise you.

Todd Wright isn’t just the fantasy football podcast guru and golf chief around here. The longtime national and local sports radio personality has loads of knowledge about the Tampa Bay Lightning. So launching the Todd Wright Lightning Playoff Podcast was a no-brainer.

The podcast will run through the Bolts’ exciting playoff run. Todd has media credentials for home games and will provide plenty of fresh insight.

(Also, the JoeBoltsFan podcast with Tom Lang has been a big hit every Friday.)

    I’d be more worried about the pens, they have the number one power play which of course pentaly kill is our biggest weakness. Caps haven’t gotten over the hump just yet by finishing the series. And if they do I don’t think that means they can really finish the deal by beating the lightning AND Vegas/Winnipeg/Nashville

    I am excited for a possible Vegas Lightning matchup.
    Vegas scares the hell out of me with how unselfish they are and how fleury is playing 1.53 GAA 4 shutouts in 10 games

    Great series. Glad the defense woke up. My concern is with the Power Play. Seems that most of the time the other teams can score and the Bolts can’t. Hope that does not come back to bite them because with all the chances the Bolts had they could have buried Boston easy. Maybe I am wrong but I don’t have a lot of faith in them keeping the other team from scoring on a Power Play.

    Hope you keep these going with the lack of a JoeBoltsFan site.

    Well Todd I guess you showed the fans of the lightning how much you really know your hockey. Keep on dissing the Bolts.

  5. Dave Says:

    Most exciting team, best team, and best run team in Tampa.
    GO BOLTS!!!!!

    ^^^I forgot what I wrote actually lol BUT Todd is way too negative and I want to face wash him for implying that Kuch and Stammer weren’t playing well. First lines get shut down in the playoffs, it’s a fact of Hockey life. It’s why 3rd and 4th line are so important, yet he somehow skips over this fact and disrespects 2 of the best players the Lightning have had in a long time.

  7. Herb Says:

    Wow. Yet another JoeBucsFan podcaster bashing on Cedric Paquette. He happened to be one of the three stars of the series. The others being Ryan Callahan and Tyler Johnson. It was a good thing Paquette was around to soften up the Bruins with his devastating hits…count um. And Callahan showed his teammates how to hustle in the playoffs. Tyler Johnson opened up the rink for the Lightning with his speed and deft passing. Those are your three stars of the series.

  8. DBAG56 Says:

    @Herb – Well said! Sure he takes a bad penalty every now and then but so does Stammer, it happens. Paquette’s physicality is so important and will be hella important against the caps, those doods can hit.

  9. Herb Says:

    @DBAG – didn’t Stammer have the most penalty minutes this year? I think he did. And it wasn’t because he was pushing opponents around like some bad a**.

    ^^^ It was Stammer indeed and it WAS because he was pushing opponents around. It was for standing up for his teammates, getting game misconducts, Instigating penalties still had 86 points on 1 leg . What you smoking bro? GTFO LOL

  11. Buccfan37 Says:

    The Capitals have a big tough team. The conference finals will be a hard fought battle. I do not want to see Vegas as an expansion team win the Cup. Stocking that team with big stars from across the league seems an unfair advantage to me.

  12. Herb Says:

    @DBAG – 86 on 1 leg…..so true.

    I will quote Tom Lang on Stamkos…He is a bit of a “black hole” who is “limited offensively”, a “one trick goal scorer” and a “sensitive cat”. LOL

    Ah, hell. This team is tight, focused, hungry and capable. Doesn’t mean they are going to win the Stanley Cup but I like their odds.
