"Back to the pre game skate as we get you set for the 2021 season opener for the Tampa Bay Lightning, who are playing the Chicago Blackhawks tonight at Amalie Arena. Members here, joined by my co host, Kelly Chelios, Sweet touched on this earlier. The Tyler Johnson and Lucien are not available for the Lightning tonight after being placed on waivers Monday. Most of those players cleared on Tuesday. However, they're not eligible to play in opening night tonight, however, they are going to be able to play once the season goes forward. So Once we get, we'll play the Chicago Blackhawks here again on Friday night. Both of those guys expect to see them in the lineup. Uh, particularly Tyler Johnson. I guess I kind of remains to be seen about Cal Foot on Luke Shay, You have cow foot. Do you think there's any I think that Luke shit is probably the guy that they want in there right now, especially for the experience. Do you think there's any way you have California's absolutely sets the world on fire tonight that they kind of? Say, Let's let's see what we've got with the kid for a little bit longer, and maybe keep Lucien on the bench for a little while. Our do you think that's Luke Shin's position to to kind of lose? I guess. Yeah, I think that's that's gonna be a tough question. Answer because I think it's going to take you know they haven't seen Kalle Foot enough. At this point. There were no exhibition games, so that's kind of Ah, a disadvantage, as John Cooper had said at the last day of training camp, but no team has really been able to see. Exhibition play before the opening night, so you know, and for the Blackhawks. It's the same thing too. I mean, they've seen 30 seconds of Malcolm Suban last year, the playoffs, so they're also kind of testing their young guys. And seeing what they have, and I think for Cal Foot that's what tonight is. It's probably going to feel like a lot of pressure despite not having the fans, but, yeah, I think Lucien is established himself. He played a key role in the play offs. He's a veteran. He's a great guy in the locker room, and I'm sure he's gonna have a great impact on Cal Foot as well. But I think he competes hard and and it is, you know, meritocracy sounds cliche. John Cooper does always say that, but There's a lot there's a few different positions that that are, you know up to who was going to compete and who's gonna win the battle. And I think here Cal Foot Definitely needs to to prove himself and improve that he deserves to be in the lineup with some strong play, you know, it doesn't necessarily. I know One of his strength is really his offensive ability, and I'm sure we'll see that it is the games go by, But right now, I think it's it's just gonna be keeping things simple, and I'm sure that's what John Cooper and the coaching staff Have told him so It'll be interesting to see how he does in his first big game, and, you know, I think going forward. His play will definitely dictate whether or not he'll be in in the lineup. He's younger. They probably want to get him some games, develop them and see what he's got. And they know what they have in Lucien. They have a tremendous player. But it may be time for Cal Foot to be able to take that next leap. Yeah. You mentioned the respect that Lucian gets in the locker room. And you know when the Lightning had their championship boat parade Yeah. Ah, On the biggest yard, it was Steven Stamkos, Victor Hedman and Luke Shin. You know, you wouldn't necessarily expect to see Lucien part of you know that the one of that trio but You know that's kind of the respect that he came into the locker room. That's how much he's. He's liked by by the leaders here at the Tampa Bay Lightning and hasn't been here that long. But it certainly endeared himself to the Lightning organization, mainly for what you just said. He's a guy that didn't really a lot during the regular season got in and the The playoffs. And they really well when the Lightning went to an 11 and seven alignment but just kept himself ready. Kept working really hard doing a lot of the stuff after after morning skates by himself, working with Jeff Halpern and some of the other coaches on skills and just kind of buying this time and waiting his turn, and it looks like his turn. He has come this year. It looks like he's gonna be part of that Top six. It's not gonna happen tonight because The waiver situation, but going forward, it looks like you'll be part of that Top six and John Cooper had said earlier that the caliph It'll probably be that swing guy when the taxi squad will go kind of back and forth and I guess depending on how he does In his debut tonight and how he looks and some of those games that will determine how much playing time he gets going forward. When we look at tonight's game against Chicago, it really just the season opener and a new season for the Tampa Bay Lightning. There's certain things that I think you You want to see from this team that you're kind of curious about. For me? It's the power player. You know, Kitty couture off. Not in the lineup is a huge loss of that power play. They run the power play through couture off. Azi. Muchas Steven Stamkos has that bomb from the left circle and had been up top. It's really Nikita Kucherov kind of directing traffic and just that deceptive game that he plays that's able to set up so many things. So far, we've seen breaking point kind of playing the couture off roll. I think he can certainly fill that role as being the guy that that really runs the power play on sets everything up, but he was a big threat in the slot to last season, so they're losing something there in the slot. Looks like Alex Killorn is going to be there. But we're also seeing McKell circuits have come in on the top power play unit in the Lightning running kind of a two defenseman Look and then breaking point goes down below the goal line when that happened, so For me. It seemed like what's the power play gonna look like? Are they going to mix things up and games? Are they going to go with one formation and see it through for a game and then maybe do something else The next game if that doesn't work That's what I'm gonna be searching for. Really Looking at tonight. Azad Lightning take on the Blackhawks. Is there anything that you're gonna be keen on Kaylie that you really want to see from this team? Yeah. I mean, you said it the power play and Steven Stamkos to healthy Steven Stamkos is gonna be super exciting to have back for them. I think just like no fans, they're gonna unveil the banner. I kind of want to see what the compete level's gonna be. I think the lightning have had the advantage a little bit going into a very deep run to get a Stanley Cup. They've been in there, process their system and had a bit more of an intimate training camp. A shorter, shorter man. Practices and opportunities there less less players as well for the coaching staff and They know their process. They learned it, You know, front to back in the bubble for a long time, so I think that's where they're going to the defending champs. I think that's where they're going to have a huge advantage over the black Hawks, who actually did a great job against Edmonton in the Golden Knights back in the playoffs, but I do think the defending champs kinda have their number right now? Yeah, Chicago was a team that was kind of, you know, on the rise, I think at the end of last.

"Mention about the lighting had gone six straight games entering that game. Not scoring the first goal. They'd had to chase a lot of the game, A T end of the island or Siri's, and then coming into the Dallas Siri's. They've been chasing a lot of not playing with the lead like they had earlier this postseason. So I think that kind of allowed everybody to just kind of breathe a sigh of relief that they got rid of both of those dubious stats on that one power play goal, and then you just saw them roll right after that, they got another power play. Again, the spacing getting guys stretched out. And then you have the fake shot from headmen. At the point he was able to slip it over to Kuchar off who faked his own shot, which got the Stars penalty kill scrambling again. And then again that open seam for the other side of the ice for Andre Pollak, who was wide open and it's a really good job. I plot to kind of gather hot past there from Kuchar off and couldn't really one touch there one time now. What if it had Settle it down and it was able to still, you know, put it past to Dover while he was scrambling to get back, But you really see the saw the power play, and it's most dynamic and those two situations. Another guy that could make that power play really, really good eyes. If Steven Stamkos is able to come back, they really missed him in that left circle on the power play. They've missed some amongst their forward group. They haven't really missed his leadership because he's been there. The captain has been in the bubble with the gang throughout this postseason on a lot of the guys have talked about, even if he's not out of the ice. Just how big of a leader hey is in the locker room and just bringing everybody together. John Cooper said earlier today was asked if he would be available for Game three. If he would take warmups. Kind of tiptoed around the question and just sat is inching closer, which is what he told us the other day, so no riel. News there so to speak, But it does seem like Kaylie that we're probably going to see Steven Stamkos here really soon. It could be as early as today. It could be in the back to back so it's a difficult situation to get all men when you got three games in the next four days, if there's something that could still be ailing him, I don't know that you would want to put him in in the front half of a back to back and then have him play 24 hours after that, That would be a really tough ask for a guy coming off an injury. Yeah, I guessed wrong on game, Teo. I thought maybe that was the opportunity that he'll go in for because the team's coming off a loss in Game one. And what better way to kind of provide a spark? Then put Steven Stamkos back on the ice and maybe a little bit more limited. For all that even strengthened. He probably is the biggest threat like we've talked about on the power play. He's been, you know, on the ice, working on the power play and kind of doing what he normally does. With Nikita Kucherov after so I'm sure if there's one thing that he's focused on, too if if and when maybe he gets into the lineup, it's being able to be a huge asset in that regard. So If they go 12 and six. Maybe it's great. We heard John Cooper talked about this morning. The importance of you know, giving some of their forwards maybe a little bit of added rest getting the extra forward in there because they played a lot of heavy minutes. You know, when you played that Siri's against the Islanders, there was one goal games and that weighs on you overtime in a longer Siri's, especially since it took him to game six to close that one out, so their forward certainly felt it. We saw that in Game one against the stars and They changed things up. It worked out well for them. They came out with a much greater sense of urgency and looked a lot better from the first period. I thought in Game two, but I think if they get Steven Stamkos, it's great. You know, I don't know who comes out of the lineup for whose minutes he's taking. But if you go 12 and six, you know he has the opportunity. Then Teo. Maybe just cycle in and gets, um, shifts on that top line and then play the power play of very able to get some because Dallas took a lot of careless penalties. I thought that cost them the game. Almost. You could say in the first period of game too. Yeah, if they continue to go, 12 6, and I think it's pretty easy. You just take out Carter for Hagee. You can put Stamkos and then the situation becomes like, Where does he go to you? I don't know that you really want to put him on the top line with the way that group is flying right now, You definitely don't want to do anything with the third line with the way that group's plants and maybe try to slaughter him in on the second line. Or even the fourth line Wherever Hagee would normally go, you would have maroon and park out there to protect them a little bit, so it'll be interesting to see where he does go once he gets into the line up, But then you have her Hagy and Mitchell Stevens. They're kind of waiting on the bench in case something does happen or another guy goes down. You've got that depth waiting and reserve to come in. We'll see here shortly whether Stamkos is on the ice for warm ups. Catch. The morning skate show presented by Tampa General Hospital is Rick.

"Pull than one later in the game. I guess a shot of 11 01 right after that. What you like about the way you has responded or guess? What was the mood there? You know, I think for us way had to fight off a couple penalties in the second period. And that got us out of our rhythm a little bit, But you know, like you said, they're obviously going to make a push when you when you get up by three. I just have to make sure that you try toe. Keep playing the same game. You don't want to sit back on leads. And I'd like to have that second goal back that that they scored on DH help Pazzi out there a little bit, but I thought after that, you know the guys. We banded together. We started making more plays, putting pucks in and having him in and we did a great job, Teo, Lock it down. Well, I think he's exactly rights. And that was Kevin Shattenkirk, along with Andre Palat. Greg Lindley with you springing Kaylie Chelios. Check out Papa John's Papa tracked a contract Your order in real time from the moment you place order online. We're on the up to the moment it arrives on fresh at your door. Better deliver tracking now available Papa John's pizza. Kaylee outside of the second period, where they took a bunch of penalties. Five to be exact and gave Dallas some momentum. I thought the Lightning really did what they wanted to do in the 1st and 3rd period's They really did. I think Dallas showed a little bit of push back in the second after they scored their goal, and then they came on desperate for a goal, obviously, in the third period when they're trailing, but you're right. I think the Lightning did a great job. I thought they finished really well and more importantly, they started really well. So they weren't chasing the game. And I know John Cooper talked this morning about What happens when you chase the game and you don't score first, you end up kind of having to get out of your system or your structure a little bit because you're forcing plays and they didn't have to do that. Instead, it was Dallas who took Cem Of some bad penalties early on that cost them and and then the Lightning just kind of did what they've been doing and played a pretty strong defensive game. Through the rest of the third period. They got their looks, but Basil a city was there to make the big saves. Yeah, He was great in closing. What do you expect for Game three? In terms of lineup? I've gotta think John Cooper probably stays with the same 12 and six outside of any news on Steven Stamkos. Yeah, It's tough to break that up once they have success like they have tonight, and I thought it worked really well, they've got some fresh legs in there. Um, I thought Yon Rudo was great card over. Hey, Gyu is really good when he was in his well. I think that he keeps the lineup the same. It's going to be a huge game. Obviously the third one and I think the lightning feel pretty good. This was a great start for them, and I think it gave them a lot of confidence moving forward. They got a few Pask Udo been here and I feel pretty good looking at the lightning moving forward. I think they're going to think they're goingto have another strong game. And with Steven Stamkos in the lineup, it can only get better for them. So that would be a nice possibility for them if they go 12 and six You know, give Stamkos some opportunity to get some minutes in and if they want to use him is that That 12 forward, but also if he has to be in a more limited role, then you give the point coach our of line some extra minutes instead and try to use Stamkos on the power play wherever he could be a value. Good point. Kayleigh will do it again for Game three. Thank you. Thanks, Greg. All right. That is gaily Chelios. We always appreciate her. And her analysis coming up next after news radio or on his radio to be flayed and letting powerfully we're going the last call myself along with Dave and her Chuck. Make sure you stay tuned for that.

"That we could, At least no. Not even if Steven Stamkos Plans on playing again in the playoffs just if he was with the team. Would there be any reason for him not to be with the team like even if he suffered a season ending injury. Wouldn't you hope that he'd be there with his teammates to root them on up in the bubble? You would. I would think so. And I think that that kind of connection runs deeper with hockey than other sports. So you would definitely think so. My only thoughts off the top of my head. Why he would come home is if he needed surgery. Right or something correct? So But but but to me the fact that that nobody It is with the organisation or any of the beat. Writers have been able to figure anything out that that's going to lead me to believe that there's somethingto hide. So I'm leaning towards the fact that he's probably not there. Why else? What would Yeah. What would be the point in keeping it quiet if he was there? Even if you say he's I mean, is that too much of a tip of the cap? Ifyou're the if you're the next team up, and you don't know, Because is that possible, is it Is it possible? This is a This is a question that I'd love to know the answer to is it possible that another team Doesn't know if he's even there, right. It's one thing. If you wantto talk up the gamesmanship and say, Oh, he's you know, he it's this or that or we're going to keep it. It's another thing to know. Is he even there? I would think that a team would know that much. You would think so. But If not, then they have to game plan for the possibility of Stamkos or that he's not there. Well, I don't know. These guys are living in this bubble. Yeah. I mean, you would think that you have a pretty good idea if somebody had just left completely. I'm sure that the team's air intermingling, you know, in downtime and stuff. You would.

Whether via Toronto here we get to watch and be the distant thunder for your Tampa Bay Lightning tonight as they wrap it up against Philly, and it's a big difference. If you know they went tonight. They have the number one seed they'll be playing Montreal If they lose tonight, I think they get the number two seed and that might make the difference. I think they match up better against Montreal. I think it would be a better experience. I mean, Vasilevskiy looks incredible. The team looks really good and in years past if Steven Stamkos.

So they're they're kind of grappling grabbing each other. And I'm in the middle. I'm getting hitting hitting the eye and we finally get out of the cab. And I'm like trying to run away slipping in the snow and these two guys are. Full wrestling in front of the hotel. And I remember was that you grabbed you were falling.

"Unrestricted free agent. So if Edmonson basically as a more than ten games than he'll be he'll have his rights to sign him. It's kind of a unique situation. But Edmonson would basically it does save the money in the interim. So that allows them to call Andrei Sakarov up because they had to open up some money and Cam Talbot. Basically, I think Philly where cod is kind of jumped the line a little they probably want an NHL veterans short serve as a mentor Tolman Talbot's only gonna be there definitely for the rest of this year. But if they make a good impression, maybe they they keep around for a little while longer show. What you take on this one biz? I heard that Talbot and Carter heart or buddies like I heard they trained together in the off season. So I like that move a lot. Philadelphia and a sense where obviously Talbot needed to get out of that situation. Things weren't working out to bit of a dumpster fire Edmonton. We don't need to shit on him. Until again, we do that every other episode, but it'd be good good for for Carter hard to have a mentor and there and somebody's comfortable with who can help push them in his day to day. And and you know, just just even have conversation of maybe what carts going through in his early career that Talbot has been through. So goalies having a good relationship on a team. And it not being like being uncomfortable. Where two guys are fighting for the natter. Maybe don't like each other. I it's definitely a good situation for Philly regarding open up cap space for Menton, obviously they needed to do that. They got that other kid locked in now for three years. I don't know. I I don't really wanna touch on the inside of it. I was more concerned for it on the Philadelphia side. So another good move by Philly and a team that's been making some moves lately as well. You guys just both said, well, I mean, it kind of deal not ton of people talk about another deal quickly involving Evanson Sam ganja back to the Oilers. Good for him. He put on Instagram picture put up once at backward all began. You know, he made the NHL thick at eighteen or nineteen is first year at a junior and good for gags. Great guy. I also think it's funny. Someone tweeted at me, oh you played in the and the game gone yet, eight points against the Blackhawks what's your most memorable thing. When I scored. Thank you. That was crazy night on their forget it. And I think the the next game. I believe he had a points on our first two goals. So an insane run. But just just a another another move that we we should mention. Yeah. Just to get up to speed on that the oil did trait. Ryan spoon, man. That guy's some miles on suitcases this year. Rape it. And kinda by the way before you finish that thought he changes Instagram bio two suitcase, I thought that was pretty funny. I love people who are self deprecating. And obviously he's rela where of his situation and good to see you can laugh at off. Yeah. I mean, he's still making four sheets year. So Ryan Spooner to Vancouver for formal or the guy going back to the oil the oil, actually interesting. He was playing for the Toronto molly's at the time. He wasn't even with to end spoon. It was actually with Edmonton's five team in Bakersfield. So basically kind of swap minor league. Although guy did get called up and he did join the club. I just jump back that fly is story for a second biz once Talbot does play a game. The flies will set the NHL record. Most goalies used in the season with eight gullies, which I it's a record.

All games as you go down the stretch in against opponents that are fighting for playoff spots. You know, you wanna see what those guys are made of. But I think again as we discussed last night, I think Ryan Kelly can still be an important player. He's not the player. He was when he first acquired him in two thousand fourteen but he's still brings so much the ice in terms of his leadership and his willingness physicality and everything else.

I think he's a good coach. I think the devils wanted to. Have that stability giving the contract extension, and I don't blame him Shiro didn't do anything during the off season to improve this team. But did you think the timing was right? No. I think they I think they needed to reassure the team that, you know, highs. He was going to be around. I had a chance to work with the US program. I like him a lot. I think they wanna put him in a spot to kind of grow with this young team. When you look at that, you know that situation now, you're right. I mean, they didn't make any any big moves in the offseason to make this team better. I mean, you had the MVP Taylor hall.

I mean, the biggest moment for me has been has been Cory Schneider. Yeah. He's not a they don't have a number one goal. No. They don't I in people don't understand this as good as Keith Kincaid played last year. There's a big difference between being the guy and being the backup. Right. When you're asked to fill in occasionally, or if you get hurt, and you gotta fill in for a couple of weeks you can deal with that. But the reason why they're starting goalies in backup goalies, and you're paying. To be that guy that difference maker. And with the injuries everything else. He has been them. I'll no I need to see more Blackwood to determine that. He's a number one goaltender to forever t h ask the question if the lightning fail to win this season. Would you consider this? A major disappointment also Tampa go all in an ad rental. Like Panara n-. I think the low at this point. I think they'll do whatever takes I think when you look at this team. I mean, how well this teams played this is and like you mentioned it. I mean, you ask the question how many teams in these can beat them in the only I mean really team that you feel good about saying could beat them as maybe Washington 'cause I mean the Stanley Cup champions. But I mean outside of that. I I don't feel good about both the other teams in the east having a great chance to beat this team. Now, they've been abroad made for too long here. They won that four.

"Cooper said after the game we talked about the leadership group, particularly Steven stamkos in their ability to kind of rally similar to what they had to do against Carolina.

Well, and in transition so his goal and Steven stamkos is goal at the end of that game where critical and obviously put them ahead, but you can never count the lightning out of any game.

But they did get better as the game progressed. And it always.
