The biggest news in the hockey world is that Shawn Michaels will be attending Game 5 of the Penguins vs Lightning series!
The original HBK will be attending the game as the Pittsburgh Penguins hope to deliver some sweet chin music on the Tampa Bay Lightning in what could possibly be the last game of the series.
Personally I’m hoping for a good old fashioned wrestling swerve. The Penguins bring out HBK, and then the Lightning bring out Stamkos for an epic return. However in true wrestling fashion, Stamkos spears Drouin, superkicks Palat and then yanks his Tampa jersey off to reveal a Leafs jersey underneath.
The Blues were dominated yet again last night as the Sharks beat them 3-0 and it’s not looking good for the Blues. Two straight shutouts. This was the type of performance from the Blues that Graeme expected after the Blackhawks performance – they managed to prevail in the next round but it’s looking like this is one step too far for them.
Tonight is Game 4 of the Penguins vs Lightning series. Penguins vs Lightning Game 3 in Tampa saw the Lightning lose 4-2 in a thriller. Let’s see what is going to happen tonight:
Graeme: I loved the way Tampa ended the last game and if they carry the momentum into this one – I could see them coming away as the victors. I was actually going to play it relatively safe and go with Over 5 goals – but when I saw the odds of Tampa winning I had to hop all over that. Tampa to win. It’s a nice price and we know they’re capable of doing it. The HBK line is hot but all lines have off nights.
Scott The Penguins have out shot the Lightning 124-70. For Tampa to have any success they’ll need to limit the Penguins shots. Crosby has regained his offense and the HBK line has been amazing. When your third line is your best then it really shows off your team depth. Hagelin, Bonino and Kessel have carried this team but they won’t get the respect they deserve when they’re behind Crosby and Malkin on the depth chart. With the Penguins momentum it would point to them winning this game. But the Lightning are a resilient team who plays well when their backs are against the wall. I like them to even this series up tonight.
