Well the Stamkos beast has scored, so there's that, but the Lightning only held the lead for about 3 minutes, before Gionta tied up with a shorthanded marker. If you can't score on the powerplay, you had better be scoring somewhere. You don't really like to see your team needing bailouts in the second period of the first game, but I'll take it.

Is it any surprise that the score in Lightning/Canadiens game is this close? Should have figured given the season series.

How do you feel about Therrien's ice time? Is he trusting some players too much? Others not enough? Does playing Weise and Bournival 9 shifts over two periods make sense?
