Tampa has a resiliency that is unmatched right now. The Avs are just amazing, but they have not really faced any adversity. Even against St Loo, they were up 3-1 and lost in OT and just won Game 6 on the road. They swept in the other two series. So they have two losses all playoffs, and their worst situation was when they were 1-1 against the Blues. At no point have they been up against it.I think it's pretty clearly the best teams from each conference, and I think this is going to be a great series. My heart is pulling for Colorado, because I really don't like this Tampa organization, but I think the Lighting have the ability to shut down Colorado in a way that Colorado might not be able to do to Tampa.
I'm gonna say Tampa in 6.
That's cool. I wonder if we'll get something similar about Chara somewhere down the road.
