"Lightning calm. This is the Stanley Cup playoffs on lightning radio. Markovic Coleman from the neutral zone. It's one by Blake Coleman make done out to Janni Gordon Center, the middle Coleman in alone. Sure. Go blank Coleman. Put it back. The great finish a good pass and the later we're feeling pretty good about themselves with that short handed goal, But then Florida would get the next two and they lead this game one around one match up to one at the end of 20 minutes. Greg Lindley with you. Let's bring in our good friend Bobby, the chief Taylor in chief. You just heard that goal and you felt pretty good. About the lightning this game, But then Florida started to push back. They tilted the ice obits and bark off was pretty good, wasn't it? Yeah, He's a He's a tremendous player. And this team is one of the best in the league at off the rush. I think when you take a look, if not the best, you know, right up in the top three Scoring off. The Russian Lightning have got to protect that blue line a lot better in the last two periods. They back off a lot and give them time and space in that offensive zone, And they just Really dominated. I thought the last part of that period. You know, even though still a foreign for they were dominating. You know, you get 18 to 10 out shot. You're gonna you're spending a lot of If you like what they did five on five chief Just looking at some numbers. They had the edge and shot attempts 13 12 63 and scoring chances into Owen High danger chances that came from Eric Rawlinson. I'm lightning insider dot com. Foreign for was a little bit different. We saw some penalties of the lightning took that certainly took small metal alloys. Well, yeah, the Ford for Florida was lot better at it. You know, in the offensive end and in their offensive scheme of things as well, But you know, one of the things too, is that, you know, get more shots away. You know, I know that they're looking for that past that extra pass Florida, you know, and that's what they've been coached on, and we saw it when it was with Columbus, too. Couple of times and you know the coaching staff that watches and really studies this lightning team. They know that there have a prone to take that extra pass around the top of the circles instead of taking the shot on goal. And, you know, like like coach had a great chance to take a shot and passed it off. And we never got a shot away and No, I think that's something that has to be done in order. You know, it's never bad play to shoot the puck on the net. Never, and we saw that here with with Vour Hagi school and even bark off school, the power play goals right from the top of the circle when he ripped it. And in Vera Hagi just took that shot as well. So I would expect to the lately maybe told to take some more shots. This get some shots on goal here. Let's make sure this kid starts to work a little bit more about Bosque. We've got about 30 seconds. What did you make of the pace of play in the first and connect? Continue throughout the game? Oh, yeah, these guys, I mean, it was quickly played. I know. I understand that there was a lot of hits and you know, kind of chippy. We're wondering if it would be his chippy. I didn't think it would be. But guess what? I was wrong. It was a little bit chippy, but I think you got to see The lightning that got to try and steal that penalty box a little bit more often because they're foreign for Florida has much bigger edge than the lightning do. Chief. Great job, as always, will do it again during the second intermission report, you got it. All right. That's Bobby, the chief Taylor right there. Hey, your numbers are out there and waiting to win. Put them in play with our 10. Exciting draw games from the Florida Lottery. The Florida Lottery. It's your ticket claim it..

"You get a few games to get some synergy with but he's gonna fit in just fine with a group and I think something that we've been looking for just a little more tenacity in our game and he's definitely to bring that he won't be in the lineup tonight but should be there Thursday against Vegas and finally it let's get a national perspective on the trade J. con from SiriusXM editor radio told me tonight on leading power play live he really likes the move you know you look at some of the the players on Tampa Bay they have your plate Coleman like layers you see grade point Anthony's rally our guys that aren't afraid to play that two way game are afraid to mix it up a little bit and I think one thing that's going to be pleasantly surprising offer cannot be like you can't that maybe haven't seemed like Coleman as much is the physicality that he's going to bring you know you've got twenty plus goals on the season so we know that you can score we don't that he can finish in you could play in all situations but I got that physical extreme to which I think will be nice for Tampa Bay maybe something they're missing out a little bit off or they need a little bit more I've as we headed towards the playoffs and we get into those physical match up so I I think like Coleman's what if it very very nicely obviously the question remains where you put him in the lineup but he's kind of a Swiss army knife is really versatile you could put on a center left wing right wing it doesn't really matter you can move all around I you could be a cop why guy you could be a third line guy so John Cooper what plenty of options of where he wants to but like all that more on the trade coming up later on in our pre game report triple a is proud partners of the Tampa Bay Lightning go bolts coming of still in our leading radio pre import we're gonna hear from Eric Rawlinson Dave Michigan Joe Smith of the athletic and Mike chambers from the.

"A bad line change there by the Rangers and Tampa they took advantage great recognition by Brayden point to see the it I mean of all five players changing for the Rangers and and it just take off of the ice and you saw we really see a speed they're getting getting up the ice and and get it behind the the Rangers D. there to put in a nice park on a silver platter pretty Kitty Kucherov he's not missing out doesn't look like Pat maroon is going to be back in this game I think the team just released the something and he got in a fight with Michael Haley early ani and that first period and the already playing without Anthony's really so bit shorthanded tonight yeah it's I guess it's a good thing that it go eleven seven because not valid be attended seven and you you no injuries are going to catch up with teams any point near they really were pretty fortunate with the forwards last year throughout the year not to have injuries and yet here we are we break point was a game time decision so rarely stop playing now or rude now goes out you don't you're in the city on the front half of back to backs and you know you're heading to Europe after the weekend too so there's a lot to kind of keep an eye on here over the next five days he would you make of that first period and we look for the second I can't wait to be looks still looks a little out of sync its ways that I thought it was a really good start once again apparently kind of derails whatever momentum you had early on in the game but you know they they have an opportunity here with with their forecheck and their ability to take advantage of a young team with this one goal lead but you gotta stop take apparently that's already too with that and we we keep harping on this but so does the coaching staff at some point you have to start taking these families out of your game because apparently kill we know what's going to approve but you can't keep put it under pressure like this he will take some questions during our second intermission reports thanks Greg all right that was Eric Rawlinson right there also to want to let you know that this segment brought.

I stand because a big blast one time love circle top shelf and it's for one lightning it took six seconds and I thought that shot by Stamkos look we've seen him do that over the years for sure but I thought that was really impressed because I thought I thought that was a little further out than we typically see him do the one timer and the ability to get velocity but also accuracy to me is impressive and Steven Stamkos on that particular play showing us why he's only goal scorer of course you heard tropical the backend. eating Brodsky who again one of the illegal tenders in the game Nikita Kucherov when you start talking about creativity and playmaking and goal scoring and you kind of package it all together there are very few players they can do what he can do and the Tampa Bay very fortunate to have a guy indicated trough no doubt about that I let's take a quick look at the scoreboard and they'll get you set for the last call which could be heard exclusively on lightning power play a few games going on right now wheelers inject side of three midway through the third period wild and stars to nothing late in the second period they're coming up here in just a little bit the coyotes and Canucks flames and sharks at ten thirty some finals earlier today the Rangers down the flyers to one that ended in a shoot out. the red wings beat the blues four to one Anthony Mantha had a couple goals and skinny it's four in the preseason and Michael rosters and also scored two goals in this game he's got four in the preseason so good night for the red wings.

"One with ten thirty one. Dave Michigan on the call full cough is a highly skilled player who is looking to make this team opening night in there a few prospects in the same boat as full cough card over Haiti who made the passable cough on that goal is also trying to impress the coaching staff and when a roster spot but Volkoff is a guy who just looks like an NHL or and John Cooper was just glad he shot the puck on that particular play I don't swim a shot much needed. tickets it now appears that get one and then then take a flat. too much longer to get the next ones which is which is big for us but not he another strong outing by Fulci use is going to finally kill and he's gay using a scale and like factor shot the puck because he's had opportunities to shoot it and hasn't and shop at the name what happens when you shoot it serves a good game I am. advocaat for Haiti Derrick Martell I'll it's very belay and Mitchell Stephens all are in the lineup tonight most of these prospects have had some good moments in camp and John Cooper knows these guys need to do it on a consistent basis if they want to stick with the NHL club. yourself in the position to sit here and say okay you have to understand that the guys probably are a little nervous me these as lifelong dreams is to be putting situations and they're realizing their dreams just plain exhibition games but no naturally guys you know they want more and you look back to the development of some of these players last couple years and how they've progressed and it's been fun to watch now you want to see him like do it when you're playing against the big boys and that's what makes it tough because you guys are putting their best foot forward and known as you mentioned tonight Volkoff did and for a game there's a slew of other guys out there that could sit here and take out a you know it's really good to see the progression those players made but. I just can't do it once you got to do it next time Alaina you got to do it again the next time you're in it you got to do it again and that's were looking for is for these guys to be put in force you know these performances again and again and again yeah it's consistency it's one of the reasons why Matthew Joseph made the team last year he continued to excel on if you remember the coaching staff just kept throwing him out their game in and game out when it came to the pre season and Joseph really force their hand to keep him on the big club and that's what somebody younger prospects are trying to accomplish for the rest of the pre season now the team will most likely make a bunch of cats again after tonight's game they made it fourteen more today we'll get to some of those prospects who were released and reassigned it later on in the pre game speaking of being sent down Louis Domingue and Mike Khandan did clear waivers today also Cory Conacher Chris Miller and goalie Spencer Martin were placed on waivers for the purpose of being reassigned to Syracuse so the shuffling continues and as I said before look for more tonight on that front and as far as Lou dimming in my condo in our concern these are guys who have had NHL success they've done very well but clearly Tampa Bay has their backup goaltender anchors mackel Haney the question becomes cannot Julian breeze law find a home for both the Ming and kind and we will find out as the preseason continues coming up still in our pre game we are going to hear from Eric Rawlinson of lightning insider dot com and also of lightning power play rookie free nama Nolan for two is back in the lineup against and I played very well a couple of nights ago he sits down with Dave Michigan were also talked to Dave and Kaylee chili as his on the call ten nights and we'll get their thoughts on how the roster is going to be shaping up in which younger players need to have a couple of good moments tonight to continue to survive and be in camp with the big club that is all coming up next as we get. set for lightning and press right here on living radio..

"The lightning radio. one able to write to the latest process that's a couple of points. the board is best for the night. Volcom clears it down the far side only the ice. I mean I think it's been the story so far then these first two preseason games let's bring in Eric or listen from lighting insider dot com also host of opening faceoff and lightning luncheon you can listen to all that on lightning power play what the last call after the game and taking your questions and comments whether it's on Twitter or via the phone line and no score at the end of one a great little with you eat it's interesting because we know how good Tampa bay's goaltending is at the NHL level but at least through four periods the goaltending at what's perceived to be maybe the H. O. levels looking pretty good. yet for two guys that were not really familiar with that I mean I'll be honest with you I hadn't heard of Spencer Martin until the team signed him on July one so I don't know a ton about him Scott wed which has so many job experience by this time with the New Jersey Devils but as you know did see any any tell time last year so for these guys to come and first impressions with a new organization new teammates new coaches staff everything I think they've really come in and done a really good job and I think Benoit cruel has to be kind of looking at going Hey I feel pretty good. Janelle Smith look like he made a couple of a decent place particularly short handed using that speed and good defensive play leading to some office of chances gays electricity player you know I remember him a couple years ago when he came in with Dallas Stars and I am to be stood out in that game against Tampa Bay so for him to come in here and you know what what I'm talking about him in the running for a ride on a roster spot but you know you see performances like this it guys stepped up when they know that there have an opportunity to make an impression on the coaching staff I think general Smith is a really good job of that tonight about thirty seconds Z. you want to see the office get going I know again the the line ups are not with to they will be in a couple of weeks but you do want to find the back that at some point here. you too there's no doubt about it you know is specially a can you get a sense of guys in this line up and they're not NHL offense of guys with their guys that we think can be any tell offense of guys when they get there the far below as he talked about him in the pre game show Nolan foot I thought had a good strong shift but he has an opportunity to get his shot off yet also yeah you want to see that you want to you don't want to have to start and answer questions about not scoring offense because this is the team as a whole that we know can score a lot of goals use the hashtag Askey easy for our second intermission report with Eric Rawlinson will take your questions in law will break down a bit more he thanks but I thank you all right that is Eric owns in.

"John Cooper knows tonight's an important game. Obviously he talked to the media earlier today about what his team needs to do to come out with a win. And let's listen to it on landing radio. You said yesterday you guys need to get back to making plays, and that's kind of your bread and butter and your possession team to carry the puck into the zone. Two guys. Maybe have to do a warship and chaser. Adjusted turn to make those kind of plays that you guys are are you? Used to making with whether offending you guys. Actually, we we probably chip and chase a little bit too much in the last last game. I think you know, when we got behind we kind of got a with a little bit away from my identity, and that's possessing the puck, so we gotta do a little bit better job of that. And have a little more confidence and making plays that we have basically all year long. Is Ryan Callahan in the lineup tonight. Yeah. Because Akita Kucher office. I'll. What what is his playoff experience and kind of the spark? He's provided all year or the second half of the year. Maybe brings you guys tonight. Well, ryan's. First and foremost, he brings outstanding leadership to our room. He's he's an energy player, he keys filled that role for us and from all twelve years now since we've acquired them, and we've we've had success with them in the lineup. And it was unfortunate in the last game of the year that we got you got hurt. So it kind of slowed inter stalled his progress Beal the play and. You know, regardless what happened. He he would have been in the lineup tonight. It's just you know, unfortunate that it's expensive coach. Two questions. Headlines bins injury is similar the same as the one that at the end of the season. Or is this a new one that he got the other night? Actually, I'm not entirely. Sure. So I it's he's he was he's been banged up for you know, the the last bit obviously on that road trip with us. So I it's just when he's not one hundred percent confidence in his ability to be physical in, you know, hopefully, we'll find out tonight. The the other question is without kucherov. You don't have that other one timer threat that you've had all year on the power play on both sides yet in this series. You still only have I think seven shots on goal on the power and five parlay chances. Are they taking away your shots? And how does it change? You know, what you do on the power play without him. Roll next these. He's he's a gifted player in a lot of power play runs through him. But we've we've been able to adapt and we've got other players that can fill that role. Is it gonna change look a little bit? There's no question, but you know to your point of the lack of shots. It's. Masumi you're counting the shots on that. It's not for you know, once have been blocked and Columbus stunned really good job. They've, you know, Stanford side a couple of pretty good looks. And you know, they they've they've either block those few of them. You know, like, I said, we've I think Kuchis rang went off the crossbar and same with stammer. So, you know, some of those ones I've got infrastructure in the year. I haven't gone in I now, and hopefully they do tonight. And apparently kills me. Great all your to when I was just wondering did they'd be able to be successful at the first couple of games. What have you seen as far as I'm able to create those kinds of chances that aggressive all year be able to take some of those away. Yeah. I just couple uncharacteristic moments for us the one the last one Tony goes down in the rush with stammer stabber falls. Potentially. Tony have changed their we got stuck out there longer than we wanted to new you how it is. When you get tired the mind goes a little bit. But we've had just one of the goals is you know, we've they snap. It back in the drawn. We screen our own goalie like it's just little things like that have not happened whole lot during the year that seemed to snowball little bit here and games one and two and. So it's I I'm not entirely concerned. It's just unfortunate for us in the first two games. China I know during the regular season he gives only get to play each other like three or four times. And it's probably not super easy to get a read on uncertain teams that exactly but have you noticed in this series? The blue jackets taking a different approach through the neutral zone through you know, that kind of stuff defending you guys. It's. So in the regular season. We the things were just I don't know how to explain it. But we were scoring fairly easily. Pretty uncharacteristic. A lot of things that Columbus was doing. And to be honest. The last time we played here. We had five on leave. I think at some point. And they've completely outplayed us. We scored every time we went down the ice. So unfortunate breaks for them that just happened to go in the net. I think he'll look back a game one. We we control that game. And then all of a sudden, we don't and now we're down one nothing. Big problem for us. Why does he go down three nothing as fast as we did clubs are pretty good at shutting down they had a game plan for that. So it's it's hard to compare the regular season because we were never down to them before. So they were always chasing us now in in this series. We were you know, now, we're chasing them. So it's kind of hard to compare. Air. All right. That was John Cooper earlier today. A lot to digest there before we talked to day. Michigan Phyllis Zito in our next segment. Let's bring in Eric Rowlinson from lightning insider dot com. And also the flaming lunch which you care weekdays one to two leading power powerplay, however on game days like today. One two three eager to be with you. And boy a lot of things staring typically right in the face. Adversely wise, you're down to here in Columbus is home barn and Victor Hedman Nikita kucherov out tonight's. Yeah. If if John Cooper referred to it as a five alarm fire after game two how has it changed in the last four eight hours less than forty eight hours now without Nikita kucherov and now without Victor Hedman. I mean is there a six alone? Fire. I I don't know how else it's a pretty it's a pretty daunting task in front of them right now history's not on their side. The way the first two games of the series of gone. Do not give you any indication that they're ready to break out of anything, especially the way that the entire game on. On Friday went there's a lot of things that has to change. And I think the biggest thing that has to change right now is just their their attitude in their will. And this is a team. We've mentioned many times they have a win. That's how they were able to be so consistent, and it just feels like that's gone away in an appeared and a half really go from the second and third period. And it just like it just evaporated. So are you surprised by that? I'm very surprised by that this is a playoff savvy team they've been through a lot together they've been through a lot of situations. Together, they've been through an o two situation together. So it is surprising in that sense. That you've got so many veteran players that have been around all kinds of situations. And they just they look out of sorts. They look at a sink, and I said it during the intermission on Friday. They look scared. They looked timid and that's not what you would expect out of this team. Is it I give all the credits. Columbus for making Tampa Bay feel this way. But it's Tampa Bay some self inflicted wounds as well. Well, certainly go back to gain one. There's no doubt. I mean, they fed. Columbus comeback Columbus. Give them credit. They came back. They took advantage of the opportunities that were there. But the lighting fed them in game two. It was all Columbus. Columbus got the early lead. And I think for the rest of that game. That's where the lightning. We're like what just happened, right? We're down already what we're down one nothing in the series after blowing a game. And now we're down one nothing early in the game. And they just look like they didn't know how to handle it when and that's the surprising part. And that's where the the being timid, and and you know, hesitant to make decisions, and it's just. The confidence needs to return tonight. How much stock should we put into Brian Kelly and getting back in the lineup in providing this team a big boost with what he can do to you by that. I do because Ryan Callahan. The offense numbers aren't there? They've obviously deteriorated over the last couple of years injuries have had a lot to do with that they hip and everything else. But everything that he brings all those intangibles. We've always talked about with wine Callahan. From the moment he was acquired from the Rangers in two thousand fourteen the leadership skills the willing to put himself on the line at any cost for his team the ability to stay calm under pressure. And you know, let's not forget and that series against Washington last year. You could argue the ride Kellyanne was the best player. Not that not that that line wasn't the best line but line Callahan. Was there Becca player? And so to have him back in the lineup. I think it is a it's a it's look everybody roots in that room. Everybody roots for Ryan Kellyanne. And he's after what happened to him being named thirteenth four coming out of the all star break all that stuff. I mean, they genuinely he is generally a guy that I think everybody rallies around in that locker room because of all those intangibles that he brings to the ice and the calm demeanor. And you know, if he was around if he was in the locker Matthews in the battle in game one. I mean does he help maybe kind of keep everybody together wanna seem like it was falling apart. You could argue that maybe that's the case. Thirty seconds before we let you go vastly point. Stamkos those guys have to have big games along with mcdonagh. And I think it starts with the guy in that. Because he is the backbone of this team has been the backbone of this team for two years. Now, he is the guy that gives them confidence. If he's making saves behind them. It lifts off the team. And he hasn't made that save yet. He hasn't had that Borowski moment that he had the opening period or the opening minute of the second period in game one. He hasn't had that signature moment. And the fact that he's getting been getting beat from long range shots. I think is concerned, and he has he has to be the guy on my mind IGA. We'll talk to you in our first report. Thanks, greg. Eric Rawlinson joining us there. We'll.

"Two steps from Emily arena. E first period and really the last regular season game. You you kind of expected maybe this type of effort from both teams. I know Boston has a two goal lead. But certainly not the same intensity where he used to sing between these teams, not even close, you know. And again, we expected when these two teams met a couple of weeks ago at Amway arena. It was a little more physical more intense at that point than I thought it would be but with this game being what it is. Both teams are locked in. You know, the Bruins arresting version on a Marsh and the lighting arresting Brayden point and set your podcast and Mekelle Sergei chef who I guess is a little under the weather. But you know, this is exactly what you're going to get. It's you know, I heard this term yesterday. And I am gonna use it here. So union game just pay everybody, go out and just take care of yourselves. And you know, let's go play. It's it's probably about as close to pond hockey or a shinni hockey as they say in the olden days that you're going to see at the NHL level because a game just has there's no emotion into it. I mean, even the crowd, you know, you don't even here. Much out of the crowd either. Just there's no emotion in the game. And this is kind of what you're gonna get good. Is he dander already back on the ice though? Very encouraging signed to see him back. We weren't sure as recently as just a couple of weeks ago, whether he was even going to be available for the star of the playoffs. So to see him back today and getting in some action. I think it's important to be able for him to get into the lineup after so much time off to at least get a feel for the game again before you know, the playoffs starts and whether he's in the lineup on Wednesday or not remains to be seen. But the fact that is getting a game is very encouraging for Tampa Bay with you know, they've been very lucky on the back end with with injuries for the most part. So for him to be back there. It's a very encouraging sign for sure it's big games though. Freddie squalene Dan Martell right opportunities to play for Squatty his third career NHL start well in particular because he's this is ninth game this year. He's been up with the team the entire season. I know there's a big difference for player, you know, in terms of their salary at the NHL level. Versus the age level. But you know, players wanna play and for him to been out of the lineup for as much as he has. It's his first game since what mid February today. So I think it's important for him to get into a game. We'll see what what what it means for pass quality. Look if you have to play Eddie pass quality in the playoffs, you have some issues, but for Martell, you never know if you're gonna have to call on him. So for him. I think it's more important for him to get into a game and kind of get a feel for it once again because I think he is a guy who can bring some energy some speed, and he's a little bit of a spark plug out there. Yeah. For sure no doubt about that. When we talked to you in our second intermission report. We'll talk about the playoff implications. Coming up tonight and a few other things as well. We appreciate about. We'll talk to you soon. Okay. Thanks, greg. Eric Rawlinson joining us there. We'll take a look at the first division scores. One return on lending radio..

"Stay and play with exclusive offers for lending ticket holders two steps from Emily arena. Eric, and I will have the last call after the game heard exclusively right here on late Ning power. E would you make of that? I I thought a much better showing than what we saw against Montreal. They had a few chances and Mitch marr made a play. Well, yeah. What let's face. It. Tuesday was a low bar to get over. That was one of the one of the more awful games. I've seen team this team play this season. So, but yeah, it's still a little bit of a sluggish start. I think think there's still some puck management issues that they have going on especially right around their own blue line there. You don't wanna fee Toronto's transition? You know, and it was a turnover at the offensive blue line that led to Toronto school. So you know, they got better game went on not the intensity. I think that you would expect from these two teams, but where they're both out there both walk into their position. I it kind of is what it is. And you know, you just kind of go out during the just try just try and manage the puck a little better. I think that's something Tampa Bay wants to work on and it is tough. I mean, I think we all understand. I mean, this lightning team basically has had a playoff spot locked up since Christmas and to be this good for so long. We're surprised maybe we didn't have a few more bumps in the road earlier in the fact that maybe it's coming a little bit here towards the end of the air. It's not surprising. It it's really not. You know, this is a team that knows when the puck drops next week. That's that's when the season starts for them. It's the the regular season as a tuneup to get to the postseason, you you wanna make sure you do what you have to do to get in. And then you take care of it afterwards know as I've been saying these games now, especially this last. Week. They don't matter. They got their sixty twin? They don't matter. Just like when you get to next week. There sixty regular season wins won't matter. Everybody's on a clean slate. So, you know, just find a way to get through these next couple of games if you pick up a couple personal milestones. That's great. If you win the game. Of course, you want to win the game. But they're not stressing over the result here. We'll talk more about Dan Girardi that impact of him possibly playing on Saturday coming up in our second intermission report. And if you want to get involved in that conversation, use the hashtag ask e at Greg Llanelli and at airi'q underscore Earl and and for Toronto kind of in the same body. I mean, the stakes aren't as high for them. I mean, playoff wise, they're going to be taken on the Boston Bruins in that first round. That'll be a tough match-up for them. But this is a team that knows that they're locked into that three spot as well. They are they they have some some things they want to work on his well their defensive zone coverage in particular over the last couple of weeks has not been very good. It's been a big topic in the Toronto media for the last little while now as long as well as Frederick. Anderson's game. They'd be given up a lot of goals. So I think this was a game that they their stress, and maybe a little bit more than Tampa Bay is because they do have some things that they want to work on. But yeah, they're locked into. They know they're facing the Boston Bruins. I, and I think a lot of ways it's just you just want to feel good about how you're playing not necessarily again the results he will do to get in our second intermission report. Thanks, okay.

"Out for the rest of the game with an upper body injury. And I know we've had a few people ask us on our shows. We can bring it to the second intermission report right here, you think Danny Martell gets a couple of games before the regular season ends just to keep him fresh. We saw with Ruta being brought up and you never know when you're going to need that extra Ford or two with that be the time especially on the road trip next week. I think you have to get dented Martell into at least a game with two holidays. Final six on the road trip. Maybe it's a Montreal. You know, he is a Quebec born player, and we know how special that can be for those French Canadian players to go back out play at the bell centre. So I think they have to get dented Martell into a game or two here. Just to you know, keep going if you have to call on him. What can you reasonably expect out of him? If he hasn't played in two months and the woman, I don't even I mean, look what was the last time Danny Martell appeared. Again, it's been a while. And we know we can do it. We saw him literally come off the street in Vancouver and find his way into the lineup. But he hasn't played since February nineteen while that's his last game that he plays. Oh were were about five weeks since he's played a game. I think you have to because what what did we see in two thousand and fifteen when Ryan Callahan suddenly down with an appendectomy. He missed a couple of games they had the pull Jonathan Marsha show up the black aces at that time, which is the group of minor league players at prices and and travels, but doesn't usually get in the game. They're there to be ready face your call upon you have to you have to give players an opportunity to to keep themselves sharp and be ready if they are called on. We'll talk to you in the post game. We'll see Tampa Bay can father way back. Thanks, greg. Eric Rawlinson joining us there. We'll take a look at the.

"In the run the Seneca final. So it's a very confident group, and I think that they know their place in the no-one they're playing well, not playing. Well, I think they realized what they have to do. And when you know what you have to do. And you've got to do it. It just make it matter making adjustments in the Stephen able to do that any. I think we were talking about the other day. I mean, I think it's fair to say that Washington is the team to beat until somebody knocks them off. Tampa Bay's had a tremendous year. But you know, we talk about the regular season. What does it mean? Mohammed ali. I'm the champ until somebody tells me a lot. Right. I mean, if you're the champ, and you're defending it. Somebody's gonna knock you off. That's right. And I think that's kind of where we are. I don't I totally agree with that. I mean, Washington, especially the way they've been playing of late. They're starting to flex their muscle and show everybody that he looked still pretty good team. Who cares? What our record is. We're getting ready for when the postseason starts, and I think having got that first taste of them. It Chris you're around a lot more than I am, obviously. You know, you get that first taste and Nelson. Okay. Now, we know what it's like now. We know what we have to do to get the winds. Okay, now started to get together. And I think from the outside looking at that's what I see from Washington and more importantly, they know what to do when adversity hits. And it's always gonna hit in the playoff with. It's going to be an injury bad bounce leads to bad goal. Call. Maybe that leaves a power play and he'd give up a goal this team. The capitals knows that when there's Versi hits. They can it over that hump state. Keep with your game plan. Don't start cheating will start changing lines and start pairings up. And you know, obviously other than last year. Don't teacher goaltender this team knows what it takes. I think winning the couple of F you really really gave them that advantage in northern team and talk and say that other than the capital that they know how to win right now at this time.

Tom Wilson seems like he's settled into not only a guy who plays on the edge over the edge. But as a very good player, and I thought in the playoff series last gets Tampa Bay. He was a real difference maker being able to get that puck off the wall entrance because that's often in Ovechkin how's he been this year another full year in the NHL. He's been terrific other than the pick up at the start of the suspended for this. Tom is a is a unique player. You know, you is very smart very knowledgeable about the game for ticket in. Then you know, when he plays a great all around game. And then he'll go play hit these. Oh my God. What are you doing? You just told me yesterday that you know, where the line is. You know, you can't cross the line. And then you cross the line, but it's a game gave him so fast. But I will give him credit since that suspension. He's really kept his game clean every every.
