    I freaking love this team. I don't want the season to end. Game 4 should be a war. Can't wait

    Anyone back home in Tampa with the know how to cut the power in Amalie?

    This might force the Bolts to stay in DC. The Caps have been mediocre there the entire playoffs.:D

    Anyone else think our soft home ice kind of negates our biggest strength.....speed? We seem significantly faster on the road in buildings where the outside temp isn't 85+.

    Or maaaaaaybe I'm reaching a bit here. Don't care. It's my theory, and it explains everything, even if it doesn't.

    I knew a kid in high school that called in a bomb threat at the end of the day just to get out of taking a test (1989). If he's not incarcerated, want me to give him a call?

    I am not saying that I want you to give him a "call", but a "hey how ya been" text, that leads the conversation to some rather...um...questionable places is fine with me. :D

    I am still concerned by the number of shots on goal for DC. Tampa had to get the puck out of the zone. Too many second and third shots per trip.

    This might be a better option. I went to school (Elem-HS) with Trump's Secretary of Homeland Security, maybe Kirstjen can do us a solid, like raising the threat level of Amalie Arena to MIDNIGHT.

    Haha you want to see pictures of the Secretary of Homeland Security when she was in high school or younger? Creepers. Somebody get Chris Hansen over here.

    Yeah she was Class of '90 & I was '91. We also both went to St. Paul's K-5.

    Not sure she can help us out with the Lightning though.

    1st Intermission.
    Point and Stammer give the Bolts a 2-1 lead and the PK has been clinical for Tampa!
