When I was getting my journalism degree at Ohio State, I said to myself, "I want to be a hockey writer." And here we are. Former editor of Buckeye Sports Bulletin and a longtime hockey nut thanks to the Cleveland Lumberjacks. I occasionally put on skates and goalie pads. Will watch any level as long as there's sticks and pucks.

Really bad shift against the Kucherov line there, letting him keep it in the zone twice and giving up a point blank shot. Bob with a nice kick save.

What a a save by Bob. I've said it before, but there's really no one better than Bobrovsky at getting big and square for that second save. So fun to watch.

Can see why this TBL power play has a goal in every game so far.

Comment 19 Oct 2017

Good catch by TV to show how Torts is trying to match top line vs. top line.

Comment 19 Oct 2017

Really fast start to this one. Even the fourth line had a nice shift there, while Tampa has had some chances. Fun game so far.

Interesting to see what happens with Hedman. And interesting to see Rimer point out how Tampa is using the 11/7 setup to try to double shift their best players.

Comment 19 Oct 2017

Man, an early chance there for Werenski and they blow it dead for the net being off. Bad break.

Comment 18 Oct 2017

Great comments by all. It's just something I started thinking about last night seeing Mason in net (and while watching Kyrie playing against the Cavs). Sports are crazy, man.

Carter really deserves everything he gets, IMO. As for Nash and Mason... I think that's all run its course. There were a lot of emotions with each, though, when they first came back.

Comment 17 Oct 2017

That's a really, really fast 200 feet for the CBJ on that goal. Johnson gets the finish but big-man stuff from Andy/Dubi to set it up.

I guess I jinxed Mason.

Comment 17 Oct 2017

Couple nice stops by Korpi so far that I would have to think would help the confidence.

Cam's play... what can you say. It's all there. Speed. Strength. Skating. Hands. He's so good.

Comment 17 Oct 2017

Nice chance there by Atkinson, and it's a shame it didn't go in, as I wanted Wennberg to get an assist for essentially falling on his ass on the puck on the neutral zone.

Comment 17 Oct 2017

Really nice couple of shifts for 22-17-77.

That one shift in the defensive zone was a freaking fire drill. Brutal. Couldn't clear the zone like three times.
