Videos- The Better Team Won

from Ansar Khan of Mlive,

Tampa Bay is a cut above the rest of the NHL, and the gap between the Lightning and the Detroit Red Wings is enormous.

The Lightning boasts a collection of stars. The rebuilding Red Wings lack elite-level talent, which is magnified with the absence of their best player, Dylan Larkin.

Even when games between the teams are close, the Lightning find a way to win.

Tampa Bay overcame a three-goal deficit Thursday to defeat Detroit 5-4 at Little Caesars Arena.

“We just have to create more stalls” - says Blashill in his Babcock voice. Can we stall his contract extension until we get a new GM?

It’s rather shocking that the Bolts have 18 more points than the next closest team (Calgary). The next biggest gap between teams is the four points that separate Detroit from Ottawa.

As I stated last night, I was at the game. Tampa pretty much toyed with the Red Wings. The Red Wings could have made it interesting if they could have made it 4-0. They had several chances to do so. When Tampa Bay scored to make it 3-2 within the first two minutes of the third period, I knew it was just a matter of time. shut eye
