MM16 Postgame Soapbox - Game 5, TOR 4 - 3 TBL

What a low to such a high. First period was awful. I'm starting to notice Tampa plays better when more penalties are called, Leafs play better with few stoppages in play. Leafs pulled up their socks got one back in the second, came out flying in the third. Best third period I've seen from this team in a while. Nylander was amazing, no complaints about anyone on the team. Lets keep this going into tomorrow night and close this out.

If Tampa wins game 6, they win game 7 imo, game 6 is the real decider, i'm cheering for Tampa because a) i picked them to win the cup in my bracket and b) watching leafs fan react to another round 1 loss would be gold, the salt you get from that can feed the world.

Also, Edmonton's losing 3-2, Ken Holland masterclass

Bobcat’s Post Game Notes, Leafs Edition

Round 1, Game 5

Leafs win, 4-3 over the Tampa Bay Lightning.

-I've noticed a pattern. Toronto won games 1 and 3, Tampa won games 2 and 4. With this in mind i expect Toronto to win this game and Game 7.

-Another too many men penalty? Wooooooow. What is going on with the Lightning? That should not happen as often as it does.

-Stamkos finds a way to score after being shorthanded, and then TJ Brodie takes a hooking/tripping penalty that was likely very soft since I couldn’t see it and the Leafs have been hit with soft penalties all series long, which leads to a PPG by Hedman. Another slow start. You’re killing me, boys.

-Colin Blackwell took a clearing attempt way high. At least he’s okay, but that looked kinda scary.

-Cal Foote takes an arguable dive to get a tripping penalty, and then with 30 seconds left on the power play, Corey Perry takes an UNQUESTIONABLE dive to make it a 5-on-3. What a perfect time for Jack Campbell to start heating up again.

-Michael Bunting gets hit in the numbers by Nick Paul. NO CALL. What the hell, refs?

-The Leafs were hesitating so much that the crowd actually started chanting “SHOOT THE PUCK”. That’s just hilarious.

-The only penalty during the entire first period that I actually thought was warranted was Tampa’s too many men penalty. There has been a lot of flops and dives on BOTH sides. At what point does this become an embarrassment to the league?

-To start the second period the Leafs shoot the puck for once, and they score! The goal was attributed to… John Tavares? Johnny Star-Wars finally got onto the score sheet for the first time this series? Am I reading the right script?

-The second period is a stark, yet welcome contrast to the first. Toronto is keeping the pressure on at all times. I’d expect them to tie the game any minute now.

-Now the Leafs have re-found the play that they showed in game 1. Let’s go on to the third.

-TIE. F*CKING. GAME. What a pass from Long John Silver to Captain Morgan to even us up at two!

-WILL NY THE SCIENCE GUY PUTS THE LEAFS UP BY ONE!!!! SCOTIABANK ARENA IS ROCKIN! That was a great play by Ilya Mikheyev to give Willy that great shot. SCIENCE RULES!

-…whelp. A smothering play by the Lightning gives Ryan McDonagh a wide open slot to take a shot that blows by Soup Man. We’re tied at 3. I should not be this tense. This isn’t even my team, bro.

-Man, Jack Campbell is doing an amazing job in net. I audibly said “SOUUUUP” after that amazing save. Am… am I becoming a pure Leafs fan? Oh dear…

-NUMBER THIRTY-FOUR IS ON THE F*CKIN BOARD! AUSTON MATTHEWS FROM MITCH MARNER, JUST THE WAY WE LIKE IT. ICE THIS THING, BOYS.

-THEY HOLD ON, AND WIN!! Finally, a tightly-contested game in this series! I am super excited for game 6.

That was fun to watch.

Your symptoms leave me no choice but to diagnose you with stage 3 leafs fandom. However, it seems to be rapidly progressing and could quickly turn to stage 4.

Unfortunately, stage 4. Luckily you seem to be still at a stage 3, which is a stark contrast from a few months ago when there was no sign of leaf fandom.

It always seems to flare up around this time. It's almost like seasonal allergies. Had the Blue Jackets been in this position i would be just as happy for them as i am for the Leafs.

Well with a strong attitude and will, I believe you can keep from stage 4 fandom; however its a unpredictable condition. Along with stage four comes extreme heartbreak, stress, denial, along with other symptoms.

Saw this absolute beauty in an FB comments section where a handful of Wild fans are actually asserting that the Blues won game 5 because the refs cheated. This graphic is not entirely representative of Wild fans, to be sure (I have loads of friends from the Twin Cities, and none of them do this)... but it's also not wrong about the very small segment of their fan base that does exactly this after EVERY loss. These folks do actually cry and moan about every impactful, 100% legal check the team endures.

And just to be clear, I'm not "trolling" Wild fans - this **** is funny. And there is a significantly larger percentage of Blues fans who babble entitled nonsense like breathing anyway.

I'm of two opinions.

1) Seider should definitely win it
2) Bunting winning would be the absolute funniest thing

Even when taking off the homer glasses, I cannot understand why Bunting should be ahead of Zegras, Boldy and Raymond.

But yeah, there's a decent chance it happens

Imagine LA beating EDM just by staying out of the box.

Oilers is a one trick pony - PP or bust.

bruins are kind of the same way. the problem with the canes/bruins series for me has been uneven officiating. across games, across teams, even simply home/away. you cant look at last night and get that penalty on forbort and say hes the only one who goes in that scrum. domi comes up punches carlo after the whistle and hits the ref. how is forbort the one in the box? if you look at like net powerplay opportunities they are somewhat close... but if you go into it more its been significantly in favor of carolina in carolina and boston in boston. just call the penalties even. is that too ridiculous to ask?

last night canes are gifted 2 penalties in the first and come out to a 2-0 lead after a pp goal and an even strength goal completely whiff on the forbort penalty which should have been matching and then miss a double minor high stick to lazar. second period theres a fluke goal after killing off a pp that shouldnt have happened. penalties to this point are 4-1... canes get a 3-0 cushion. and then the bruins get 2 pp ops on a slash and a hold and canes get another one as well. by this point everyone knew the game was over though. the game wasnt that different that A) the canes should have gone into the 3rd with a 3 pp advantage. and B) that the refs called it 5-3 to make it look better than it actually was. you gotta shut up and play but man it really feels like the nhl has been controlling this entire series with the way its been officiated.
