Finally (FINALLY!) the Tampa Bay Lightning unleashed the raw power of electricity on the fans at St. Pete Times Forum. After delays kept the Lightning from breaking out their Tesla coils, they unleashed Nikola Tesla’s favorite natural phenomenon tonight before their 3-0 win against the Sabres.
We’re huge fans of the Tesla coils here and seeing it put to use tonight is just incredible. While the Lightning didn’t put it to use to celebrate any of their goals, that’s something that will hopefully becoming in the near future. As for now, enjoy the sight of what it looks like in action in the arena with a packed house. (Hint: It’s awesome)
First things first: Kris Letang might get suspended for Game 4 (if not for more than one game) thanks to this controversial check on Marcus Johansson.
Beyond that, there could be some bumps and bruises from this contest.
Bryan Rust left during the first period and didn’t return to the game after blocking a shot. Brian Dumoulin seemed shaken up after an Alex Ovechkin hit in the third period. The Capitals might have a player or two to look at, as well.
In other words, the Penguins could really lack for quality defensemen with Letang possibly suspended and possible injury absences for Dumoulin and Olli Maatta.
This series is living up to the hype … and really building up the hate.
Yes, NHL is reportedly looking at Letang’s hit on Johansson
That’s a clear sign that “The Flower” is healthy enough to play, as Murray would be an injury or a coach’s pull away from giving up the net to Fleury. (One would assume.)
Murray has been fantastic for the most part since taking over for Jeff Zatkoff during this postseason, yet you know how the playoffs can be; people may clamor for Fleury after a loss even if it’s not really Murray’s fault.
How long Murray keeps that job now that Fleury is healthy is the question.
