GAME DAY: Tampa Bay Lightning

If the Thrashers manage to win this one, we'll somehow be back in the Top 8.
In other words, we really HAVE to win this one. The Lightning aren't as good as their position in the standings; doing nothing but raking up overtime loss points eventually becomes unsustainable and you get beaten out by better teams.
And I do think the Thrash are better than the Lightning.
But the Bolts will crave revenge for the home opener, and blah blah blah, etc. etc., and so on and so forth.
I think I'll need an IV to make it through this game.
P.S. To placate any Lightning fans that might be, like, Just So Offended that we would insult the opposing team: Regardless of who wins this evening, I would bet actual sterling that Steven Stamkos scores on us.
