This is why hockey is amazing. The second wild card on the verge of taking down one of the best teams the NHL has ever seen. I feel for the Tampa fans, but I think everyone else can agree this has been fun to watch.

I hope Columbus takes out TBL in 4. That would be so sweet

Most likely the case, as the Isles sweep the Pen15 club

Really impressed by Texier in these series, he was instrumental on that second goal.

That being said, the cbj need to go for the jugular in game 4, they can't mess with Tampa.

👏👏👏 looking forward to the broomsticks coming out. Are we going to witness the favorited team to win it all, crumble 2 years in a row? And in a much uglier fashion no less? Gotta wonder if panarin or duchene are considering resigning the way things are going right now

Nothing against Tampa, but I don't feel for them too much. They have home ice and all the advantages in this one. They're a seasoned playoff team. The franchise has won the cup. They've had killer teams and a remarkable parade of amazing talent. You contrast that to how hard hockey life in Ohio is and you got to feel a little happy for the Blue Jackets and their fans.

But yeah, playoff hockey is amazing.

You have to give Jarmo tonnes of credit. He had the kahunas to hold onto Panarin, Bobrovsky and made stellar trades to get Duchene and Dzingle.

Wish more General Managers do what he did more often.

Would be surprised if they sign Duchene if Panarin stays. They gotta pay Ottawa a first and salary issues. I think one of them stays though, together with Dzingel and possibly Bob when he realizes he can't join a better team.

Dutch is enjoying there and Panarin has made it clear he wants to go elsewhere. I would say more likely Dutch and Dzingle sign and stay. Bob is the big question mark there and think that is more an issue between him and Torts so not sure if he stays or goes. If he goes that will be the big issue for the GM to address for the offseason there.

Have to give the Jackets credit they have been playing amazing and getting great goaltending from Bob. I figured they would put up a fight, but damn this is awesome to watch and see.

Lightning definitely choked. They havent been the same team since February. They were awful in March and that trend carried over to April. Tampa is a team that had 128 points which is well above the next closest team and they do not look like a team that should be in the playoffs right now.

Bread maker already marked gone since he wants to go to Flo Rida. but you right about Old Dutch and Jingle. Big Bob is an unknown, but I doubt he changes his mind. He'll be the clear no.1 in Flo Rida with his ruskie buddies... would be great to leave on a high note getting to the Eastern Finals before succumbing to the Caps who repeat the championship....

Ghost of Nash and Coach Hitch.....show up and Jackets loose the next 4 games...

There is a reason Clbs have never won a series........ They are losers..... Do not trust Russians ( Bob and the breadman) in the playoffs...... when the going gets tough .... the Russians go home.
