The Lightning have already stolen ice so far with that win in Game 1. It would be nice to be up 2-0 heading back to Tampa, if a loss occurs tonight, well a split also works for me. The only thing I am sure of is that the Bruins to be better tonight.
Greg from Days of Y'Orr doesn't really see a problem with the garbage thrown on the ice by the fans after Game 1. He said he didn't like it, but didn't see a problem with it. I do. Boo your team, leave the game early to show your displeasure at your team's performance, but don't throw garbage on the ice. And if the roles were reversed, Boston fans would be ripping into Tampa fans for throwing garbage on the ice.
And speaking of last game, the frustration in the loss boiled over at the end of the game with Lucic and Horton each taking a roughing minor and game misconduct. I'm sure we're going to see some of that spill over into tonight's game as well. The Lightning will try to ignore it and try to stay focused, so we'll see how much of an impact this will have.
What the boys from DOY are saying:
The entirety of Game One was one giant mess of a game. The only highlight for us was watching some dude fall on the stairs and spill what seemed like 10 gallons of beer all over the place and on people. It was one of those kinda nights.
