On the NHL Stanley Cup Finals podcast with Marko:
#1 Len the Tampa Bay Lightning put on a goal scoring clinic on Monday night with a 5-1 victory over the visiting Montreal Canadiens frankly it was just a lopsided event to start the finals.
#2 The Lightning’s Nikita Kucherov led with two goals and Kucherov has now added to his seven goals and 23 points in the post season and been a big contributor for the Bolts offense.
#3 Marko, the Canadiens have had some great series in the post season a come back series against the Toronto Maple Leafs and they defeated the Vegas Golden Knights 4-2 in round two. The Lightning however displayed what kind of team they are a take over and control team do you see Tampa Bay being a little too much for the Habs in the Finals?
#4 For Canadien goaltender Carey Price a rough evening on Monday facing 27 shots but allowing five goals as great as Price has been in this post season the Lightning just laser beamed shots past Price all night.
#5 Game 2 tonight in Tampa Bay, Ondrej Palat, Brayden Point and Nikita Kucherov are the Lightning’s top three sharp shooters do you agree if the Canadiens can shut them down they can shut the Lightning down and have a chance to even the series?
