The simple answer is that Shesterkin has made 5 ten-bell saves and Vasilevski hasn't made a single one. Tampa is outplaying them even while looking a bit listless -- the best goalie in the world is just having a sh!t game. 

They'll bounce back.

I look at it this way: if the rags win the cup this year, then we are owed another 3 by the hockey gods. 

Don't even say this sh!t. Too many doomers on here saying this-- you're going to fvcking voodoo reverse jinx it into existence or something.

Tampa is going to wake the fvck up. They have to.

And even if they don’t, Colorado has the firepower to overcome elite goaltending.

Honestly, I'm looking forward to seeing Bratt Hughes Slafkofsky -  Sharangovich Hischier Mercer, with L Hughes on defense and supporting cast for the next several years. If we can get a real NHL goalie we'll be dangerous. 

Kreider, Panarin, and Zibanejad are 29-30 years old. Their top 2 lines will be slowing down just as ours are starting to put it together and I dont think their kid line will carry them into the playoffs year after year.

Yup in 2-3 years their management will be sending their idiot fans another loser letter.

If they get to Colorado it's over, their goalies suck as bad as Ranttamingue and it looks like they'll be riding a backup for a while too.

Anyone else find it odd that NHL is putting the rangers goals up as shorts on their youtube? They only did 1 out of 14 goals scored last night but for some reason they've uploaded 3 of the rangers 5 so far.....weird

 

Edit: it's only 2 goals of the rangers they uploaded and its...of their 6 now....damn it

NHL and ESPN NEED New York to win for some reason. I get it’s a bigger market, zero question but holy sh!t, how are you the premier sports channel and don’t demand possibly the greatest matchup of the playoffs in favor of Bright Lights Brah! When compared to TNT’s all around experience, ESPN’s is so pathetic. TNT dove headfirst into the NHL and I freaking love watching their broadcasts, ESPNs is for the most part trash. Mark Messier & Chris Chelios? Yeah cool awesome, so impressed you got guys with personalities of rocks.

Last memory of an obnoxious crowd chanting the home goalie was better was when the Devils played the Stars and the "Eddie's better" chant was going on. We know how that turned out in the end. 

Who knows, maybe lightning can strike twice. Pun intended!

Even the Devils could have beat Tampa the way they played tonight. I'm not worried yet, but obv. Tampa has to get going. They can't wait until they get home ice to do it either. I hope this is a wake up call the way it was for them against Toronto. They're rested, they just didn't play smart at all tonight.

Yep, I hope this game lights a major fire under Tampa's ass and they win the next 4.

I'd be surprised if this Tampa team didn't respond well after losing Game 1. Win the next 4? That'd be nice but I think we're looking at a long series.

Scoreless game and then 5 minutes into the 2nd Colorado gets 2 in 15 seconds and then adds a 3rd a minute later. Mike Smith is incredibly inconsistent. I’m shocked they made it to the conference finals. 

McDavid and Draisaitl have willed them there.

I think they’ve won 18 straight playoff games after a loss.
