You ran for twenty four yard. Twenty eight hundred eighty nine. Yeah someone put that role rushing yards for your career. Yes fifteen ninety eight bed. Totally seven touchdowns phil simpson seven rushing touchdowns. But it says here. Yeah i mean you could take a quarterback sneak. Tom brady twenty.

Mvp though he does have that you played one the great soup to give them that. Twenty twenty five. He was on the way to winning another one as the quarterback. Right you know he.

What's up giants at eagles. Sixteen ten road win for the giants. September of nineteen eighty five. So i was in utero. Fill one for twenty eight yards. When did he play. Was that the year that he threw for five thirteen against the bengals a game by game. Eventually you'll find it. yes it was. I was two weeks after the career long rush in week. Six right at the bengals forty of sixty two to pass. I've seen touchdown i two picks though but in that time for sixty zero bigly what happened because they happened with me in washington.

The braves oh boy earlier in the inning giancarlo stanton snapped one. All of the to run doubled left. He also homered in the first to open the scoring. He's batting three twenty four here in the month of august. Good power and production numbers as well seems to line up with aaron. Boone and the yanks finally giving him a shot in the outfield again. It's been a seamless transition. Right back out. There looks like he's been playing regularly all all year the last couple of years. So that's been really good to see standout defense from judge in gallo last night to once again. Some really strong pitching five innings of one run ball from jordan. Montgomery father by scoreless relief from jonathan. Luisita juan de peralta and aroldis chapman. Your guy bruce beck.

"G. R. Eric, Thanks again for taking in time to join me this afternoon. The first question I'll start off with is have you found the key to Kucherov yet? Is he still out partying with the cup? Uh, there's probably a really good chance of that. I've seen plenty of pictures of Pat Maroons with the cop out and about in town. Uh, and the fact that Nikita Khrushchev just signed on with Bud Light's kind of gives you an idea of what's going on. Um, the good news is is there's not a camera in front of them, so maybe it's a little bit easier for him to handle that, right. It's not like when Alex Ovechkin won the cup and there was a camera following him everywhere as he went on his, you know. Three month, Bender. So, but, hey, you know what I mean? They're back to back Stanley Cup champions and and they deserve to celebrate as so. So, Eric again. Thank you again for for joining me today. This afternoon. Um, I guess I'll start off with your thoughts on how the Stanley Cup final played out. It certainly seemed like you know, on paper, The Lightning should have been the Stanley Cup champions against Canadians team That didn't even finish the regular season. The top half of the NHL, but I mean, the Canadians gave them all they could They Fought all the way until the end. And you know the lightning just again. Just deserve to be the cup champion with the stacked roster they have. Yeah, they're so deep, right? Like And probably the game winning goal in the Cup clinching game kind of just sums up Tampa Bay. It's Ryan McDonagh, David Savard and Ross Colton that hook up for it. You know, I mean, who really had heard of many of those guys, and obviously, McDonough has been around a while, and Savard was the trade deadline acquisition. But Colton was the rookie who wasn't even you know, with the team in the bubble last year. So all the star power breaking point. The kitty croup draw Victor Hedman, Steven Stamkos. All those guys. It's the rookie who you know, sets up the the game winning goal or scores the game winning goal. And the guy who wasn't with the team last year, either. David Savard is the guy who had the primary assist, So it's just it's just there. That's just the The strength of this team was their death. Yeah, they've got the star power. They've got elite talent. It was the overall depth up and down the line up that made them such a difficult team to play against. And at the end of the day, Montreal works their tail off. They have some grinders. They can really work it. They don't have a ton of skill. I think Suzuki and Caufield Is going to give them that element moving forward, but they don't have a ton of it, so they have to really capitalize on their chances. The line you don't have to. They have so much death. They can. They can have just a few chances. Her game and they're going to find a way to win a game. Eric Eyre Linssen joining us right now in the western hotline of lightning insider dot com. Andrei Vasilevskiy. I mean, clearly he's been one of the best goaltenders in the NHL over the past four or five seasons. He's been consistently a finalist for the Vezina Trophy and this playoff performance just mean was arguably one of the best performances from a goaltender We've seen in the Stanley Cup final. Wouldn't you agree? So Absolutely. I mean, when you start talking about doing something that no goalie in the league has ever done, and that's pitching a shutout in all four series clinchers, and it's five straight if you want to go back to the series clincher against Dallas last year. I mean, that's just being a guy who is ready when the chips are down when it's ready to close out. I mean, it's just phenomenal what he was able to do. And you know, he's probably not even to the peak of his career, which has to be a scary thing. You know, he's 27 years old, You know, goal is just start to really hit their peak, You know between 27 29. Um, just he's such a staunch a steady presence. And, you know, I remember looking at him after the game was over on Wednesday nights, and everything he'd been for like he looked exhausted. It had to be he's played. He played every single minute in the bubble last year. He played every single minute in the playoffs this year, and he just goes out with a focus and determination. Um, just you take that work ethic with the talent that he has He had the feeling he hasn't even reached a ceiling yet, and that probably has to be a concern if you're the rest of the NHL. Eric. I'm going to jump to Nikita Kucherov right now and before I get to my question with the salary cap issues, uh, I just want to be. I'm curious. What are your thoughts on his playoffs? I mean, he was the leading scorer of the Sailing Cup playoffs once again, but also the post game press conference he had shirtless while drinking a Bud light. Um, and some people have been highly critical of him during that situation, but I mean, it's something where he's showing his true self. He's just want two Stanley Cup championship and he's having fun with it. Manager is calling out a couple people, but One of your thoughts overall on Kucherov on his play, and also the postgame comments. Well for him to miss an entire regular season and come in and do what he did in the playoffs and like it's not easy like he went from September 28th when they won the cup last year to really You know, you don't see a game until the start of the playoffs in the middle of May. That's a long time to be away from game action. And then you jump in to a playoffs and look that series against the Panthers was fast paced. I mean, it was fast the Panthers really wanted to push the game they wanted to try and make it a run and gun style. And push Tampa Bay that way, And that's not easy for him to do so to put on this type of performance and other 30 point post season. You know when you start to put your name Up there with Gretzky Lemieux about guys who had back to back 30 point playoff performances that's pretty special. And as far as the post game, um you know that's the Nikita Kucherov that we don't normally see, because he is a pretty reserved guy. He's actually usually pretty I don't want to see stand office, but he doesn't like to give a lot when we when we talked to a normally especially now that it's just the zoom meetings that we've had for the passenger. Plus, um, you He showed some personality. He kind of let loose a little bit and you know it's it's. It's tough to think that how much we criticized, especially in hockey, we know in hockey guys like to talking cliches one period of time. You know, we just got a left turn the pay. I mean, we hear that from these guys all the time, and he comes out and just speaks his mind like we can't criticize players for never showing their personality and then criticize them for showing the personality. I thought it was great. I thought it was entertaining. I had no problem with anything. You said he didn't say anything about the Montreal Canadians. He was more concerned about what the Canadians fans right kind of reacted to that game four and I think that's kind of getting lost in the shuffle a little bit. Yeah. And the other question I had pertaining to Kucherov was. We heard Dougie Hamilton be very critical after they lost to Tampa Bay, and they're in their five game series in the second round, saying, Well, that's a team over there. That's you know, 18 $19 million over the salary cap, and that's because They were able to keep Kucherov on long term injured reserve through the regular season. But once the postseason came, he was healthy. And you know there's nothing against, you know, guys that you know what the salary cap going over. There is no sailor cap essentially for the postseason, so Um, I guess what I'll ask you is. Do you feel that? You know it's a bad look for the lightning because of this, But even though it was in the rules, and do you think that, you know, maybe the NHL looks us this in the future and says, Yeah, maybe we should fix this. Well, it's a rule that they're in place. Other teams is certainly utilized it to their advantage. Um, you know, let's look at the New York Islanders, for example, right? They lose Andrews lead towards the talent of the year..

"You know, Pittsburgh skate around in Nashville with the cup hoisted painful, Emily you mentioned this is a chance at a second straight. I mean, at some point, do we start having a conversation about Tampa Bay that involves, like words like dynasty. Yeah, You know, it's crazy because after they won the last one, all everyone was saying is like, well this offseason going to be so hard for them. They're not going to be able to bring everyone back. This might be it in their chance. And lo and behold the confluence of events of Nikita Kucherov getting that hipster during December 29 so that they didn't have to move anyone. Tyler Johnson going on waivers twice unclaimed that look, he's being a big contributor. The Stanley Cup final. They made it work and this offseason again, they're going to have to deal with these same questions. But maybe there's another confluence of events where, yes, they can figure it out and win once again, So I do think that this team that we're seeing now is a manifestation of years. Honestly, a decade of strong drafting, and I'm count management Julian Greece plot their GM, but it's also his predecessors advisor Man. I think that's the name that anyone who doesn't even know hockey probably should know. He is a genius of the GM. Just as he was a genius as a player, and there are really good teams. There are really deep team and I think they're going to be heck of a competitive team next year. You know, they have to get rid of people. They have a world class talent and the key to Kucherov, Andrei Batalov Ski and Victor Hedman. It's Spain and fit Sarah, Spain. Jason Pitts. We're talking to Emily Kaplan about the chance for the bolts to repeat his champions with the wind tonight, a Stanley Cup final sweep. After all that time that the Canadians had to wait to make it back, and it could be over just like that. I want to drill down on what you just talked about with the surgery and the timing. There are some people who are critical of the bolts and how things have gone this year, perhaps trying to evade the rules and either In order to send this particular team to the final, right. Yes, And you know it's fans doing it. I hear it within the league to. There's a lot of people in the NHL around the NHL. Who say we get it? We understand the rules are what they are with a salary cap. But why did he get this surgery on December? 29th? Why did he get in October? Why did you get in November? Why did he wait until this moment when the lo and behold it was very convenient. And then he came back low and behold, very convenient Game one of the playoffs looking quite dominant could he have played in the regular season? That timeline seemed a little sketchy, But you know Gary Bettman, his three Stanley Cup presser was asked about this at quite defiant, saying We looked into it. The rules are the rules. They've been like this for a very long time. We have no issues with it. And honestly, I don't I don't Think there's anything malicious about it. I don't think there's anything sinister going on. I honestly think it's a confluence of good luck and kind of fortunate event. So where did this all go wrong? I mean, the Canadians obviously came into the entire Stanley Cup playoff. Not favored, right? And Carey Price gets hot. Everybody says Okay, you've got a hot goalie. Where did it go Wrong for price and this Because this was a close game. Game One was a one goal game in the third. It just got out of hand. And it feels like everything sent in has been at a hand. Is there something Montreal could have done differently in your mind? You know For me. The turning point was Game two because that game they actually outplayed the lightning. Significantly. They had a plus 20 shot differential. If you're getting 20 more shots from the other team, you usually win the game. And that was just one of those games were just none of the lucky bounces. We're going in, and all of them were going in for the Tampa Bay Lightning. If I had to think of one turning point in the series, it was Blake Coleman. Good Texas American boy can save us on July 5th nicking this incredible diving goal with just like, seconds left in that second period. If you hadn't seen it, go look it up. And after that, it almost just felt like Montreal was deflated and and James break the fact that they come home. First time in 28 years. They're playing with Stanley Cup final at the Bell Centre. Unfortunately, the Quebec government didn't allow them to have more than 3500 fans. So it felt like a lot and they just came out flat. And I'm like, you know what? It's not their year, they're gassed. This is Tampa based Hey, Emily, Before we let you go, you just pointed out. If you're out, shooting a team by 20 shots a game. You're probably winning that game. It had me thinking I would like you to tell me Which of these is the most prominent and most often used hockey cliche, is it Get pucks on the net, but she just referred to is it calling a stadium? A barn? Or is it a goalie standing on his head? Oh, you know in the organization is all about the process and take it one game at a time. I think the answer is none of the above it fucked deep. Yes, plus deep. They're not even get pucks on net. Wow. I've been out of the game for too long When I covered the Blackhawks in and out in those locker rooms, and at the games I started saying organization and I still do. And people are like, what's wrong with you, Like, I don't know. I just heard them say it too many times. And now I say, organization, but you know what's crazy? What? I'm like, covering a final and I'm around a lot of hockey people. All of a sudden, I just a story. I swear to God. The last couple days have just been saying story and everybody. Yes, Save yourself, Emily. You are the best, my friend. Thank you so much for the inside the expertise and enjoy this process. Hopefully, the the final is a little longer, Just because it means that we get to see more rock. It's really just selfish at this point and talk to Emily more. Yeah. I love it. I love it. No. One, sir, in any games, but I'll take more hockey appreciate. Thanks, Emily. That's Emily Kaplan, ESPN NHL reporter on Spain and fits all right. We got a bunch of stuff we want to get into.

"Date of that game is going to be we've talked about before the Longer than usual pause That's expected to take place between the end of the regular season the start of the playoffs because some teams AII the North Division Canadian team still have a lot of games that make up the plane's Vancouver looking at you, but, yeah, I think last time I looked at that they were 46 games, so they still have quite a few to go here before the end of the regular season, so it'll be interesting to see how the NHL Kind of deals with that, if they go ahead start some of the other divisions first, while the North Division finishes the regular season if they wait and let everything finished up regular season before Get started with the postseason If they even say Hey, Vancouver, you know these games you have against Calgary. They don't mean anything anymore, because no. One neither if you're gonna be in a playoff position, and they just bagged up so Don't like that don't happen, but it could. And obviously, the HL has quite a lot toe. Look out here over these next or just next week to figure out what's gonna happen there. Yeah, exactly And like we talked about, I think before the game against Detroit, it Z also everyone's gonna be the same disadvantage in that regard whether or not Um, you know that pause if it's a week, seven or eight days is they sort of predicted, even though it's still up in the air. We haven't gotten as much clarity, but everybody's going to be coming into that game cold in some way. I don't think it's gonna be like it has been in the playoffs past where you're rolling in with that, mo mentum. Especially if your team like Dallas, you know if they're able to win out in Nashville, doesn't you know when their remaining games that they have and they sneak in there? I don't know how dangerous like a team like that is gonna be if they've Been sitting for a week to rest up and recover. It might benefit them from a physical standpoint, but as far as that moment, um it'll be interesting to see how these first round matchups go down, especially As we've talked about a bunch just the unknowns of playing these teams that you've seen 78 times in a in a regular season now and then playing them. For the first time in round one. You just have so much familiarity with them, and you don't know if that's going to continue to Aidan a rivalry or how that's gonna play out because you know, we've seen it before. We're Lightning have played, You know, a Columbus Blue Jackets team and they hadn't seen since December, the regular season. It's not gonna be like that this season, and that's one thing. And now John Cooper had talked about his What's going to be curious for him definitely will change what round one is like, and then we'll see how much you know having a possible wait or delay. In the first round has well I think it really benefits the lightning The longer of a break that you do have because then it insures that Steven Stamkos is ready. Then the Kitakyushu office ready And like, Like, you said, the longer the break. Everybody's gonna be going through it, So everybody is gonna be Little rusty from having that that time off, So it's not gonna Be a detriment to the lightning in that regard, I think the more time we would certainly help them because they have some some injury issues and there's other teams. Obviously they're dealing with injury issues. Aziz Well, I don't know, if any are quite as a zoo pronounces the Lightning's and, you know, two of their marquee players and the key to couture off And Steven Stamkos, But we've got some exciting news about those guys yesterday. Actually during practice, Steven Stamkos was back and skating with his teammates and a practice scenario for the first time since his lower body injury. He suffered April 8th at Columbus. Behind the scenes. I'm sure Stammer has probably been skating on his own and doing some of that workout stuff with the Lightning training staff staff, but Tuesday was the first time we actually saw him on the ice skating. He fully participated in practice. He's actually on a line with Nikita Kucherov and Mitchell Stephens, who we haven't seen. We only saw him that one game when he came back from his long term injury. That we haven't seen him since. So those three guys skated on what could be the best fifth line in the history of the NHL eyes. The other four lines are obviously out there for the lightning and doing their thing. All right. Then we saw them get into some power play work towards the end of practice where Steven Stamkos was in his traditional spot in the left circle in the key to Cooter off was in the right circle that he had had meant breaking point. And Alex Killorn kind of rounding out that top power play unit that You know, I was talking with Greg Llanelli before the show here. We haven't really seen that entire unit together since I guess Stamkos went down last year with the injury during the regular season, because if you remember in the postseason, they didn't have Stamkos. They had him for that one game against Dallas, but they didn't get a power play while stand Coast was out there. Then he you know, went down with injury again in that.

Let's bring in our lightning reporter and broadcaster. Good friend Kayleigh Chelios, Kaylie. Great to be with you again. And you know, we've talked about the back end being a real asset for the bolts in I'm really liking what I'm seeing from this 11 and seven line up, regardless of the opponent. Wondering, Do you think that's the best line up? I think it seems to be working for them For sure. I mean, John Cooper likes said he did it in the playoffs, the Stanley Cup playoffs. There's not a lot of coaches to that. Like running it back. You know, 12 and 6, 11 and 17 typically No. You're defenseman to they like to know who their top six are. How many minutes you're going to get in there like that sort of consistency for sure. But I think with the way the lightning have been playing in this team first, obviously coming off a Stanley Cup championship, they know what it takes to win and For them right now, 11 and seven is working there bought in. I think the defenseman are being able to utilize and more advantageous scenarios. Um, you know, being able to go 11 and seven and then you've got a star studded offense, even with Nikita Kucherov out of the lineup, so it's great to get players like Andre Plot breaking point. Top line for the Lightning. The Stamkos point plotline are rolling. So getting those players more minutes. You know Alex Killorn as well. He's been great Biyani Gord line, I think is certainly Even if they're not producing. They're creating energy out there and sustaining some great shifts in the offensive zone to get that next line ready. Kelly. What do you make of the importance of these games early on, especially with maybe the uncertainty of the schedule later on in the season Because of all these makeup games, I think it's gonna be a real sprint. Try and get as many games in its possible and that's why these.

"For lightning and hurricanes Greg Lynn Ellie with you, Kaylie Chalice will be joining us in just a few minutes since the start of the 2012 13 season. Tampa Bay is 23 3 overall against Carolina, including 11 1 and three Over the last five seasons, so they'll be hoping for another win tonight against the Canes. One guy who has been solid to start the season for the Lightning is Steven Stamkos, He'll look to Add to those win totals for the lightning. He was asked the other day. What's the reason for his fast start since, uh, you know, coming off double sports hernia surgery. So it Z Best of health, since, uh, probably a year. I wouldn't go that far to say the best. I've felt all time that Z Those days are long gone, I think, but definitely the fact the best I've felt in. You know the past 12 months for sure. And I think again, you know, the reality was I hadn't played a game in a long time. Besides the You know, three minutes and 47 seconds in the final, so again still a process, But I feel like I'm continuing toe feel more comfortable and even getting better and stronger as we progress through this thing. I mean, it's not just get back into a game. It's the progression of, you know, continuing toe build on on those things. There's still a lot of protocols for me in terms of, you know, strengthening certain areas, so work in progress, but definitely feeling good. He's been tremendous and he's winning face offs, and I mean that's something. Everybody is really encouraged when it comes to Steven Stamkos and what he's been able to do so far. From his perspective there as the cinnamon. Speaking of Stamkos, Seth Kushner, he's back for season to the block party podcast his guest this week. Steven Stamkos. Discusses magical goal in Game three of the Stanley Cup final and he gives a Nikita Kucherov injury update. Check out the block party anywhere, you listen, podcast and hit the subscribe button. We talk about the lighting are dealing with some injuries. In addition to the unpredictable schedule, Eric Char Anakin Mitchell Stephens both left the Columbus game with injuries turn act day to day with an upper body injury. Will Stevens is out indefinitely. With a lower body injury. This allows more ice time for guys like Matthew Joseph Alex. Full coffin cow foot, though this is how you get better depth, and that's what the lightning want moving forward. They'll need those guys in a big way. And they're getting their chance to play because of some injuries. Let's bring in lighting reporter and broadcaster Kaylie Chelios, Kaylie good to be with you again. And as your attorney say injuries happened with every team, but that means an opportunity for some younger players, doesn't it? Yeah, for sure does, And I think one of those players that's you know, stood out so far since opening night is Matthew Joseph and we've seen him slotted and different situations and No, He spent some time in Syracuse last season, just regaining his confidence, getting a chance to play a lot more minutes and all situations and I think he came back to this year's training camp. Was a lot more experience under his belt working on his game, and I talked about it with burns in the pre game, but I think one of the biggest skills that he wanted to work on two. He has the speed and the explosiveness, which we've seen. Lot and you know, it's great because I think he draws a lot of penalties. He creates energy and, um, you know, he's just wants to be all over the puck, so that's great, especially like Alex Killorn said. It works out great for him because Joseph runs in there and he does a ton of ground work. They're working hard in the corners and just get to the puck up to him. I think one thing he wants to work on is just making plays with pace and being able to stick handled and make passes and catch passes. You know, using his speed at top speed, so that Czar pretty hard skill to learn. You know some of the greatest In the world, delighting have that are able to do it and Brayden point in Nikita Kucherov just making big plays of pace, So that's one thing I think he's trying to work on this season, but I love his game so far, and when he's able to bring to the lineup Lastly, Caylee. What are you expecting from both teams tonight after having not played a bit You know, you don't want to think that there's going to be any rust. But At the same time, you know, neither team has played. Carolina has had two delays and several of the key players out of the lineup now because they're on the protocol is so I expect the Lightning dick start really strong. You know, I think they made an emphasis after The loss against Columbus that they were pretty unhappy with their performance and that they, you know they need to start. And play a lot better, especially with how critical this start in with these games, just getting moved and delayed. You know, you have to take advantage, so I think it's gonna be good for the lightning. I think Carolina's probably gonna have a little bit more of a feeling out process, but Rod Brind'Amour seems to bring out the best in his team and he you know he coaches a great brand of hockey and they play, you know, defensively structured game and they're hard to play again. So it's a good test for the lightning. I think The great job will do it again during our first intermission report. Thanks, Greg sounds good. All right..
