Roloson is playing OUT OF HIS MIND right now! It's ridiculous how dominant he's been in the playoffs. If he can keep it up, I don't see ANYONE beating the Lightning. That's really the only variable that means anything. The Bolts are gonna get their goals regardless of what line is in the game, it's just a matter of Rolo stopping the other guys.
The NHL HATES Tampa discarding their Golden children they way that they did. Some of those penalty calls were VERY suspect. I expect to see more of the same in this next series.
But our boys are durable. The NHL would be pissed if Tampa got past Boston, but I'd love to finish the season with the Canucks! That's a good match up.
If TB ends up going all the way this year, Roloson gets playoff MVP for sure. I remember when he was like 37 and the Oilers made that cup run, everyone was saying how crazy it was considering how old he is. 5 years later he's doing the same thing.
Lol I hear what you're saying about the officiating, i've seen A LOT of shady calls and non-calls occur throughout the playoffs but I don't think the NHL hates tampa.. Gary Bettman LOVES
his American market (which explains his refusal to move Phoenix back to Canada despite the millions of dollars in revenue the Yotes lose yearly)
Tampa versus Canucks would definitely be an exciting cup final and I think i'd enjoy that more than a Boston final simply cus Lightning have such a high powered offence it would make for a more entertaining series.
Have you by any chance been able to catch any of the games in the Sharks-Red Wings series???? That series has been nothing but fireworks I'm excited for Game 7 tomorrow!!!
