"Panthers with a power play ball. The shot and the deflection, you'll see Mellon be poking away the pocket. He's rewarded for his art effort. The Panthers win, and as you know, with sports teams, like they like to keep things in-house and we probably never would have found out about this murder that unfolded before the game, except for goalies, goalies have big mouths, pretzels, a big mouse, but SOTY goalies. And afterwards, Jon Bambi's Brooke, who was the Panthers goalie, talking to the media. He said, yeah, you got a rat trick tonight and they were going to make today. He killed a rat in the dressing room before the game, and then he got two goals. So he says I'm going to call that a rat trick. And that's how it got out to the public. It probably may have beezer doesn't say that. It probably that's never gets out. It's never a story, you know? I mean, it's a brilliant, it's a really bit of marketing, Emily, intended or not, right? Two goals, one dead rat, and presumably like this takes off from there. Yeah, it's organic marketing, which is the best part about it. No marketing executive could have come up with something. A table. Oh, you doing the real alley to consumer. But really, I mean, the fans loved it. Farm. Deals to Murphy. Murphy with a shot to fucking score. In front deflected. And it was Scott Melanie redirecting the shot from the point. His third goal of the year and the Florida Panthers with a power play goal we three nothing. The building was starting to get exciting and the crowds were great. They were getting engaged. They were starting to fill the seats. But now they have an inside joke. They've got a rallying cry. They've got something that the fan base can hold on to and also throw on to because this now became a tradition after games or after goals for fans would throw rest onto the ice. The save and the goal. Scott Mellon made the man three points tonight. The rats are back again. And Jeffrey's saying all rights right now. Week or two later I scored a goal and all of a sudden this rat came on the ice and early on it was kind of like that. When I scored there'd be a rat and it seemed as the season went along it progressed. They sell for anywhere from three 50 to $10 depending upon where they buy them as the season goes along this becomes a tradition. I have never seen anything like this. Look at the rats just pound in there as Tom brasso tries to get a little bit of protection going back in his yet and they're coming in of all sizes. After the Florida Panthers four goal fans pull rats out of, I don't know where they brought them into the arena and they toss them onto the ice, which let's face it is quite the spectacle. They estimate roughly three to 500 rats per goal. Get dumped on this ice after go, but one of the things that it's so many more rats than I thought it would be. I know. It's a straight up investation. He's always been a great goal for him. Wow, what a start shepherd just pulls up. An innocent enough looking play here. And just to clarify here, Emily, because I do want to be vaguely mindful of the rat lobby. These are not real rats at this point, being thrown onto the ice. They're mostly synthetic. They're mostly toy wraps, but it did say he may or may not have seen a carcass out there or two. And look, this is not exclusive just to Florida. We have other animal traditions in the NHL. Yes. Detroit red rings are famous for throwing an octopus on the ice in Nashville. I literally went with a guy whose name is catfish Jake as we went to the catfish store. He's stuffed a catfish into the back of his pants smuggled it in and threw it onto the ice. But this to me for some reason, it's just way eager than all of that. Yeah, and look, obviously, right? Originally, you'd throw hats when you had a hat trick. So this is in that tradition, although this is also a tradition that feels like an actual living nightmare for a lot of people. On this planet. It is, and I just wanted to say, I feel like it's really fitting to the identity of hockey fans because let's face it, we're kind of savages. That is true. Scott Mellon be spiked a rat with his hockey stick on opening night and it has become a thing to do is to throw things like this. I dug this out of the bag that security kept from the last game. There must have been 50 to a hundred different kinds of mice and rats here. This one has Magnus Vincent's Pablo by the end of the season. Everyone knows what's coming and the arena staff there is prepared because within seconds of these rafts, cascading off of the ice, you see a brigade of guys with squeegees. And they're ready to pick it all up and be efficient here. Yeah, I'm counting one, two, three, four, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, ten, 11. More than a dozen people are immediately just out there. As the rats are still sliding across the ice, just yet throwing them into all of these containers and plastic bags. We scored the zamboni doors were opening and working people were coming out and cleaning up and going somewhere to be sold back to the fans. Imagine coming home being like honey, how's work today? Oh, it was fine. Just, you know, clean up the routes on the ice, the. Other there was a kid outside, he was probably ten, 12. He looked at me and he said, you're, I'm about to spit out yam Scott Melanie, and he says, you're the right guy. I'm like, yeah, I'm the right guy. So he didn't know my name, but he knew I was the right guy. All right, noted savage after the break. We talk about how the rat trick rose to even greater heights. And then how it disappeared.

"He's like top five in NHL history in career playoff points per game, so we'll see if like the combination of Alex Potro, Angelo and Mark are injury flurry and, of course, We could turn back to Robin letter They didn't need to in the first round, but they certainly could if they need to in the second round, and he gives them just as good of a chance to win. So I think they're gonna be a lot of ebbs and flows in this series. And I think it could be one of those syriza that we look back at. As you know, maybe something that took the league to a new level in terms of ratings in the playoffs for a non Stanley Cup final match up, it really could be that good has not set the field. So I want to get your thoughts before we move on to the I think Carolina Tampa is another really interesting serious before we do that. I wanted to get your thoughts on the Florida Panthers because I think that was a team with some expectations that they would put up maybe a tougher fight against Tampa. Now, I mean, obviously getting Kucherov back for the playoff run. He's one of the best players in the NHL. That's just a tough draw for Florida. Considering you're not playing the team that everyone else got to play in the regular season. But having said that the Sergei Bobrovsky situation Pete is maybe one that it's hard to quite put into words. How difficult of a spot his contract may put that organization considering you know, I just think that they've got the forward group. They've got the group on the defense and if Sergei Bobrovsky is playing at his at his ceiling That's a team that you could sell me on. That could potentially be a Stanley Cup contender. But the fact of the matter is is Bobrovsky. It just has not just so it spent a move that has not worked out and listen at the end of day. If you would've told me if you go after me at the time, they signed the contract at 30 years old, if paying him all that money. Was that the real smart move? I would've told you no way, but that was a team that was looking to make a move. They made it. And I think if you're gonna look back now, you're It's hard to make the argument that paying goaltenders top of market ever really works out for anybody. I mean, Ben Bishop you like you just got you know, you start to make these moves, looking backwards, and almost all of them haven't worked out well for the team that has done it. So where are you? And how much are you concerned about this Sergei Bobrovsky contract potentially holding back the Panthers. From from maybe finding their potential is a team that really should be a deep playoff contender. Well, I think it could hold them back past next season. No doubt. I mean, I think the big question for Florida is like what's gonna happen with Alexander Barkov and when you have there You know their two best players right now. Next to you. Let's say next season, they're going to get Aaron Ekblad back. Who's an elite defenseman? They have Spencer Night. Who's You know a goalie? Prodigy already got thrown into the fire and looked great in the playoffs and the regular season. So he's gonna like, be at the very least, that one b two bobrovsky, he might even be the starter as early as next year. So those are all good things. But you see the type of money that whoever does making right now 5.9% season and also the same for Barca, but Markov's contracts Expires. US face status after next even and then hoovered ou FH status after the following season. So all of a sudden they had a big, you know. Season this year, coming past their expectations. And then you know, still being a young team with an upward trajectory. But now you're looking at the next two seasons they're gonna have You know tremendous pressure on this team, so Yeah, You think that as the time goes on the Bob contract could hurt them even more, And it's It's tough for that team because they're just they were trying to find relevance. For years. They haven't won a playoff seriously. In 1996, and they nearly did this year they played. They were the better team of five on five in the series. I would say you know, outside the game number six where they got, you know, blowing out a little bit, but definitely that he has something special brewing. I love some of their sneaky acquisitions like over the past year, like Carter, her Hagee and Sam Bennett and Patrick Horn quest like they honestly, the Panthers might have beaten any other team in the league in the first round this year outside of Tampa and Colorado. I really believe that so it was a really tough draw for them. Having explode in that series, like, say if the teams were to meet again next year. Tampon Florida the deck plate healthy that Syria's might go the other way, But yeah, it was. It was a tough draw to play Campo with their big five healthy Tampa might be stronger this season and they were last year when they won the cup make, so that's what we're looking at here with these Florida teams. The expectations and the performance is extremely high. These days. I think outside of and we'll end up seeing, you know Pete, who ends up winning that Toronto, Montreal, Syria's It's probably looking like Toronto, and I think Toronto Winnipeg will be a real treat for folks. But I I find it hard to ignore the potential excitement level of a Carolina Tampa series. Um, I think you know, Ultimately, Carolina's maybe one of the most under talked about one seeds. Um, I think they're a really great They're a great team. They're well coached. They've got young superstars. How excited are you to watch that series? Play out? And if you're asking me or if you're if I were to ask you what series you thought would go seven games out of the ones that we're going to see here in the second round is this may be the one that that maybe has that has that potential. I mean, I do. I am taking Colorado over Vegas and seven and I'm sticking with Carolina over Tampa, but it's gonna be really nice. I think that Carolina is a Better, vory better, more experienced, even better puck possession version of the Florida Panthers. They could play high scoring with you two Got goaltending options. To turn to. They got three of them more as it didn't even play in the playoffs. So far. I mean, it's been the rookie Alex that Belkevich playing every game, which has been a little surprising, but he was outstanding in the regular season, so And you know, with camp A. It's just like you know that their power play is going to be dangerous every single night, so limiting the damage. They're making it more of a 515 game, or Carolina can dominate the shot attempts and that sort of thing. That's the lay of the land of Carolina wants to win this Syriza, but they are a better, more healthy version of the Florida Panthers. They go toe to toe offensively with the bolts. And they can definitely beat them in the series..

"John dollars, and Brian Hayward with you from Amalie Arena in downtown Tampa. The Tampa Bay Lightning leading Game four of the Central Division first round matchup over the Florida Panthers by a count of 5 to 2. Lightning lead the Syrians two games to one Brian. Normally in a normal circumstance, I would say it teams up five to going into the third period. It's a tall order, but the Florida Panthers have dominated this hockey game. They have out shot. Lightning in this game, 35 17. They begin the third period on a power play. They already have two power play goals in this hockey game. And were it not for Andrei Vasilevskiy. This would be an entirely different hockey game. And I agree with you that this game is not over because to me, the Tampa Bay Lightning have not shown that they can defend Against the attack of the Panthers Panthers play high risk pocket Their defense are activated every shift. They come down off the blue line, even on 50 50 bucks most teams would back out of the zone. Don't back out of the zone. They stay in there They try and keep the pressure on and you know they have generated a ton and I mean a ton of quality scoring chances. They start this third period. On the power play. They've got a minute and 28 seconds of power play that they did not deserve to get, but they got it. And if they can get something here, this third period is going to be really interesting. They have altered the shot clock. It's now 34 18. In favor of Florida. They take a shot away from the Panthers. They had a shot to the lightning. But that doesn't change what the eye test has shown us. It's future off who sits in the penalty box and what was a very controversial penalty at the end of the period. Many feel that it probably could have easily been a penalty the other way as COO Trop was checked into Chris Treeger.
