They played a lousy first game but played much better in game 2. Vasilevskiy saved the Lightning in game 2, and an egregious turnover resulted in the Lightning’s 3rd goal.The Habs didn't do too bad considering they didn't have their head coach on the bench because of Covid. Interesting to see what happens next. They dug out of a 3-1 hole against Toronto.
I agree Montreal will play hard to try to avoid the sweep. I don’t know if the Lightning will have a letdown. It’s possible, but they’re playing so well. I want to see the Lightning win and skate around with the Cup in front of the Habs’ fans.I look for the Habs to play hard for pride in front of the home crowd and TB to not quite have the crispness they need, just because they are sick and tired of being in the "playoff bubble" required of them to play across the border.
But if TB does not close it out tonight, look for them to explode at home and celebrate with family and hometown fans.
Not completely confident in that prediction for Game 4, could still end up a sweep. TB is just better than Montreal.
I agree he is without a doubt the best in the game right now. The habs hardly looked competitive. That's more of a testament to how good Tampa is. I hope the pens are paying attention to what wins.Lightning won 1-0. Conn Smythe is Vasilevskiy. He should have won the Vezina Trophy too.
The Lightning are loaded, no question.I agree he is without a doubt the best in the game right now. The Habs hardly looked competitive. That's more of a testament to how good Tampa is. I hope the Pens are paying attention to what wins.
