Joe Micheletti, Jeff Petry, Anthony Cirelli discussed on Drive Time Sports


Joe Micheletti, John Oliver and Emily Arena. The Canadians on their first power play of the game in a scoreless game five John Rueda offer a cross check at 7 19. Canadians have to go back into their own goal to turn it over, and Coleman very nearly gets a short handed goal. He's got it again in front of pitchforks, the backhander wide and Jeff Petry trying to settle things down for the 1st 20 seconds of the Montreal power play. Which has been fairly ineffective in the series is equally ineffective. It Canadians just one per seven on the power play, but they're making soft place jokes and they're getting outworked by the penalty, killing the lightning round. For sure, they thought Montreal thought that Tampa Bay was just going to clear the ice. Clear the puck down the ice on the first one. Tampa Bay didn't try to make a play, and they did the Coleman Suzuki fires it hard around and into the Tampa Bay zone. McDonough pops into the front of the net. Nobody home but Anthony Cirelli of the Lightning and he'll ice it. Got a penalty coming up. Behind the plate. Is it coincidental minors? Let's listen. Anyone got minor interference. For about two minutes, Embellishment. So it's an interference call on Sirnak. And an embellishment call on Perry's so it is coincidental Minors at 8 15. Perry Perry slammed the Penalty box gate. As he went into the penalty box. He didn't like it. Your neck just came over and gave him a shoulder to the chest. And Kerry went down. And the officials felt that he embellished to call enough to even things up, Joe to me. It's the age old conversation. We could talk about it all night long. How can it be both? Either one or the other. It is both because that's the call. Does not affect Manpower situation remains a five on four power play for the Canadians and Anderson offside as he tries to pull a pass from behind him back into the Tampa Bay zone. And the Canadian power play still has 48 seconds left joke, but it has not looked sharp. No, it hasn't You know, this is a power play that That Hasn't hasn't really looked all that sharp throughout the series. I've got some young players on there. And you know, we've spoken so often about the Montreal penalty. Tampa Bay's is excellent as well. Anderson and Coleman. Jostle at the edge of the circle, exchanging short cross checks. The officials have to come over and All the old line in the back seat like on vacation with your brother and sister. Never worked. No, it doesn't was going to say we'll see if it works, but Number. The retaliation is always what Mom and dad costs and here comes Coleman off the face off. He had a chance to come in short handed, but he's caught by Anderson is going to take a penalty. That's hooking call and Coleman saying it should have been a penalty shot. He's all the way back at his own blue. Yeah, but he's got a point. The question is, Did he have a breakaway and so 17 so Tampa Bay makes the makes the play. They try to clear it goes off a glove. And slows down. And so Coleman Is able to Try to reach out And he loses control and tried to control it with his Right skate and that didn't work. So the Game is being called tightly, Joe that go so far as Would you consider that a pretty good penalty because of Anderson doesn't take that penalty. Your point. I think Coleman, who's got great speed is up to the race is on a breakaway for sure. So it's four on four for the next few seconds as the lightning people fuckin circuit kept trying to get it back from Gord had his stick lifted. It angles off the boards and back out center ice. Shots. 10 2 in favor of Tampa Bay Montreal Power play did not even produced a shot on goal before they took the penalty there by Anderson at 8 43. How Suzuki wiped out by Coleman Coleman's been all over the ice in the best player on the ice in this first period. He has points in every game in this series, and Tampa Bay wanted one appellant. Too many men on the ice Suzuki on his way to the bench. Puck just appeared in front of him went off the skate of a teammate that was going over the boards. Then he just dumped it in the rest of the way. Don't think it was too many men on the ice and nothing else. The officials agree with me. Cadman handles at center Ice Tampa Bay seconds away from going on their own power play now on their second power play of the game as the Canadians sweep it away, and Hedman has to come back and get it. That's another example. Cirelli gets it right at the blue line, carries it over the blue line, and immediately he's attacked. He loses the puck. Montreal clears it. Edmund brings it in for Stamkos, who wires it around, and Cirelli battling with Byron to try to keep it alive. Future off made a little pump pass into that bumper. Position in the middle. Got it right back and point now has it right Circles out High. Hedman. Top of the list takes a wrist shot doubled up by Carey Price. That time, Tampa Bay was able to get set up and when Kucherov has it that when he becomes so dangerous, so he's on the right side, and he's looking for either a plate of the middle. Play down on the side of the net. But this time he got it to Hedman on the left point, have been walked in and initially decided to take the shot because Cirelli was directly in front of Carey Price. But Cirelli took a step to the side price was able to see the shot make us safe thoroughly Wednesday, ensuing faceoff to the right of price pup on the end boards. Evans didn't get it out shot past my head in the boy was looking for future off the right post, and he didn't connect hustling the other way. Evans trying to split the defense shorthanded, and he's written off the puck in the left corner now by heading Nine seconds of the power play. 10 6 remain in the man advantage point across the line from Petrovac to control his pass deflected towards the net. Kept away by Carey Price and collected by the Canadians. Daigneault clears the zone that'll do it. Out of the box Anderson and the Canadians full strength. So Tampa Bay old for two on the power play, and they turn it over at Senate. Here's Suzuki on his own into the Tampa Bay zone strips to the left corner, wanted the center for the far post. Fact came aboard to intercept that. Lifted out by the lightning. This will go all the way back into Montreal Ice First man on He drove a rolls it slowly to the side of an end and Carey price scoops it up. He'll hang on just under nine minutes to go.
