Okay I take back the refs clearing that up ok. I do get the sense that if they called Stamkos' penalties properly, the game would've spiraled out of control (revenge shift line brawls). Keefe is on point for crediting the Lightning's level of calculation.

Would like to see DoPS do something but I am already laughing at that prospect even crossing their minds.

All that aside, this game underlines what a dubya Dubas' deadline was.

I wonder if we might see that next game also since Reilly has not looked good at all in his own end when paired with Schenn.
Love Schenn for the toughness but his foot speed and puck moving ability isn't good.

I thought he was one of the better players last night. Had a really solid, I flashy game. Exactly what you want.
I Saw Jay McClement Score.

Doesn't mean he wasn't good because he was, it's just that he gets in trouble sometimes because. Should also mention another great attribute of his is his calmness. He doesn't get rattled in the moment.

It's funny to think some people were comparing this trade to Foligno

Flash back to Cujo and Belfour stealing us games. Forgot that we could win a game that we shouldn't. I built some belief in Samsonov last night. Dare I say that felt different...

I think Stamkos attacking Matthews has everything to do with what looked like a severely hurt Point on a perceived dangerous play. It's not right and it seems even less so with Point coming back. I don't think it was as calculated as Keefe thinks.

Nah Keefe was right. It was well after the hit, Matthews was just picking up sticks thinking all the pushing was over. Stamkos knew Leafs were getting a PP and tried to take Matthews off so he wasn't available for the PP, I called it last night during the game. Smart move by Stamkos knowing the refs usually even things out in situations like that

Funny, I thought the exact same thing as Keefe when it happened so if a guy sitting on a couch thought  it, surely Stamkos, who knows a lot more then this guy is smart enough to pull it off. He had one thought there, get Matthews off the ice. Credit to him, Matthews didn't play for 9 mins in the 3rd period and that PP was horrible.
And to add the refs really handled that poorly. Stamkos should have been given 2+5+10 and Matthews 2 tops. Should have been a 5 on 3 easily but they didn't do that. Overall I thought the refs called a decent game but missed some pretty blatant stuff.

I don't know exactly what was said to Dubas but it's pretty obvious it went over the line....good on him. He looks like he's ready to go. Dubas has the passion.

Lafferty gets fined.  Nothing for Tampa.  The league continues to be a joke

On article said Dubas was saying f-u, but I think he's saying "you don't friging know'.

Yeah, I agree. There's no question in my mind Stamkos knew exactly what he was doing, and that the refs were not going to give a 5 on 3 unless someone left on a stretcher. I've got grudging respect, that was a pretty smart move in the moment.

Fully admit that I'll probably not have the consensus opinion, but I didn't like it at all. It's a bad look on a guy that I've always respected for rising above the BS.

For what? The crosscheck?

Edit: indeed. I mean, I guess it was to the face. But still.
