Tampa has some clutch players stepping up in big moments. They've surprised me, considering they look so beatable.

Bishop was awful tonight. If he played that bad against the Wings, the Wings would still be in the playoffs.

The Islanders were no better than the Wings, right down to falling apart in the third. Islanders are gonna have to be a lot better if they are to win this series.

I've only seen Bishop play one good game, and that was game 5. Even last year, Bishop has always looked like a goalie who benefits from luck and solid defensive play around him. If the Wings had players who could finish, we could have swept the bolts.

5 points. 2-0-1 will guarantee us the playoffs. We have ROW so alternatively all we have to do is beat boston and win one of the other two. It's not easy but it's doable.

Personally, I think Mrazek is hitting that sophmore slump goalies seem to go through. He will be elite, you can see it when he continues to get into position and battle to get in the way of the puck, he's just not on top of his game. I go with the hot hand in Howard for a little while and if he falters, Mrazek will need to step in and get the job done. It's just the way it goes, feels like when one goalie falters, the other has stepped up and we find ways to get points.

The problem we have with scoring comes from our defence. Our top 6 guys (Larkin, Datsyuk, Zetterberg, Nyquist, Tatar and Abdelkader) represent 57% of our goals. After you get past their contributions of 30+ points, our next best point producer (Mike Green) has 21 points. In the past, our best point producers usually included the top line and top 2 Dmen. That is the biggest difference I see - the past several years there has been little offence from the D and it all falls on the forwards. If the defence can get shots through from the point, it should be easier for us to be more consistent with our scoring.
