Go Bolts!

Looks like our team is hitting on all cylinders.
On a side note. is anyone else tired of the crappy announcers bias towards the Bolts.  I guess it is to be expected, but its starting to get old.

    I don't think it's bias so much as they have a great team that work together very smoothly and they have a great coach
    that's hard to beat.

    If they don't read their own press clippings and put efforts like that together all series, this could be over quick.  But Montreal will do something to change the tide I am sure.  Last night was just absolutely dominating.

    The announcers were gushing over the islanders the last series.  It's what happens when you have former players doing the color commentary.

    Not our best game last night by any means. But a win is a win!  
    Go Bolts!

    The buzzer coleman to end the 2nd was crucial!!!

    Seeing all over social media that "the Canadians deserved to win that game"....well then they should have won! 

    I think that is a big difference in our current team and the team who was swept by the blue jackets. We now find ways to win rather than expecting and deserving to win.

    For sure!  Having the best goaltender in the world on our team helps also.  Go Bolts!

    Very true about the attitude when they were swept.  Cooper before the playoffs that year cautioned and was concerned that they had not gone through any adversity the whole season.

    every commentator on every network has already handed this series to the Bolts...gives me a bad feeling!

    I agree with them. It's all over but the cryin.    Montreal has never been serious competition for them.

    Monday? 

    Did you check out the Kucherov presser afterward?  He is not a professional drinker and it shows.

    Right now i think they are the favorite in the NFC.   The Rams traded for Stafford but they are IMO on their way to being the New York Jets of the west coast.   Splashy trades and failure.   The NFC I think is fairly weak lately.   AFC looks like KC, Tennessee, Buffalo, and possibly Cleveland.   AFC looks tough.   Baltimore is always good, Pittsburgh could be better if they run the ball more and don't rely on Ben's arm.   Miami could win 11 games this year pretty easily.  Heck the Chargers have a ton of talent and a good young QB..

    Anyone doing the boat parade?  Contemplating it.  Paper says no boats allowed but I think it has said that every time.  Any clue how the red tide is on the Hillsborough river area?

    The Rams with Stafford frighten me a bit. They give us fits with Goff, and Stafford is a huge improvement. The Packers have a brutal schedule this year but if Rodgers comes back you can't count them out. The Saints...well...they now have Jameis so...no.  The 49ers and Seahawks are probably the only other 2 threats in the NFC and neither really scare me too much.  I think the key will be securing home field for the playoffs this season so we don't have to go back to Lambeau and steal another one.

    No red tide on the river.

    I was thinking about it, but am at work at 11am. I considered getting a slip at the convention center and then joining the parade, but too much work. 

    It does say no outside boats every year but unfortunately for Jane, it is public water

    LOL, They bent the cup at the boat parade and it has to be sent back to Canada to get fixed.

    Guess that's the only way Montreal can get to have to cup for a few days  :D
