Tampa kills one wrong call and two soff calls.

If Tampa stays out of the box they can win this series. Can't take 3 a period and expect to win, although the first one was a major league flop by Wilson.

The first should have been an even up - interference then the tackle by Wilson

The second involved some embellishment.

The third was a weak call.

Cap fans have even less room to cry about officiating as though they ever had any.

High stick no call. Can't wait for the next weak call on Tampa.

Does Ovi ever not leave his feet on a hit?

Wait, I thought the series was already won by the better-than-they-have-ever-been-before Caps, and they had demolished their "pushover" opponents?
Yeah, looks like winning a 2nd round series vs. the Pens and then 2 more playoff games isn't quite enough yet to claim the Cup.

This years playoffs have featured the dreaded home ice disadvantage

Last night's game brought a smile to my face. Now turn it on Bolts.

Best out of 3- we'll see if the CAPS have got the stomach to move on. They can't have Holtby being average- no goalie can be average in the cup run.
I am hoping the jets can win in Vegas tonight.

I can't make sense of this Western Conference series.

If Tampa wins in the East, I may celebrate with a Kunitz player T.

Milbury whining over incidental contact at the red line that still had to go through two more Caps and Holtby to give up a weak goal.

That play is rarely a penalty in November.

Ovechkins hit on Kunitz seemed a little high. I really started to like him when he stopped playing like an idiot... He seems to be tapped back into his caveman days this year...

Agreed - and CBC called the same play "not enough for a penalty".

This series wouldn’t be a choke. Tampa underachieved the first two games. Tampa is really good and should win this series.

How many of these lightning players were on those rangers teams that upset the Caps a couple times?

Apparently Orpik taking a clean hits means he gets unlimited penalties the rest of his shift.
