I agree that the toll of playoff runs eventually catches up with a team, but I am not counting Tampa out yet. Tomorrow night’s game is huge.It’s going to be an easy series for the Rangers
Tampa is shot, too much hockey on those legs the last few seasons.
I applaud the jinx attempt. Fact is its one game, after a week long rest, for the 2x champs, and a team that's won 18 playoff games in a row after a loss.You’re a bit nervous cuz it’s your team playing them.
From a neutral fan perspective, it’s over.
tampa is cooked
Without the setup, how else is he going to claim the Rangers somehow choked if Tampa does to them the same thing they have done to every other team they have faced?I don't know how you can say any team is done after one game, let alone a team that has won every series for the last 2.5 postseasons.
Screw you and your attempted TKR jinx! :)Game 2 will say a lot. Game 1 was heavily impacted by TBL's 9 day layoff.
It is not easy to say as a Devils fan, but I called the Rangers playoff run around the time they traded for Vatrano. With Shesterkin, I could see '94 2.O.
