Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Erik Erlendsson of the Tampa Tribune,
Seeing how others view this year's version of the Lightning one might think would raise some eyebrows and the team would have gained respect for what it has accomplished, particularly for playing most of the season without prominent goal-scorer Steven Stamkos.
But after clicking on a link Thursday afternoon while in Calgary, the day after Tampa Bay knocked off Vancouver, the description of the Lightning was ... strange.
After the Lightning knocked off the Canucks 4-2, the Vancouver Province used this line in describing the game: “For the Canucks, it was an embarrassingly listless 4-2 loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning. They were fed a cupcake, and most Eastern teams qualify, and choked trying to get it down.”
A cupcake? The No. 3 team in the Eastern Conference, a team with more victories than the Canucks, is considered a cupcake?
Talk about earning no respect.
