Tampa Bay Lightning
Steve Yzerman of the Tampa Bay Lighting has been named the NHL’s general manager of the year.
Tampa Bay goalie Ben Bishop and his Chicago counterpart, Corey Crawford, both made atrocious mistakes less than a minute apart in Game 5 of this impossibly close Stanley Cup Final on Saturday night.
There are games when Corey Crawford tests the patience of the Chicago Blackhawks and just about everyone rooting for them.
The Stanley Cup Final is back in Chicago. And it brought along all sorts of questions.
When the Chicago Blackhawks were seven minutes away from losing the Stanley Cup Final opener, it wasn’t Jonathan Toews, Patrick Kane or Duncan Keith who stepped up and perpetuated this team’s reputation for big-game grit.
“When I scored the goal, the first thing (I thought) was, ‘Oh no, I have to go out in the media after the game,'” Teravainen said.
The Tampa Bay Lightning are hoping to rejoin hockey royalty after a decade-plus absence.
The NHL playoffs have been a roller coaster of excitement, punctuated by a pair of Game 7s over the weekend to decide the Stanley Cup finalists.
So much for all those questions about what’s happened to Steven Stamkos in the NHL playoffs.
Hold the pep talks, motivational ploys and all the statistics that support Tampa Bay feeling good about its chances of closing out Montreal in the second round of the NHL playoffs.
