Montreal blanks Tampa Bay Lightning in disappointing content

in Sports/Top Headlines by

As the playoffs approach, the Tampa Bay Lightning look less and less ready for them. The Bolts lost a 3-0 game to a Montreal team that has long since been eliminated from the post-season. But the Lightning, too, looks wobbly. Tampa Bay got off only three shots in the third period, and had a power play when it didn’t get any. Tampa Bay has one more game at home, a Saturday night effort against New Jersey, before finishing the season…

Rowdies sharp, battle Montreal Impact to scoreless draw

in Sports/Top Headlines by

Once again, they were scoreless. But for the Tampa Bay Rowdies, this was better than nothing. The Rowdies played Montreal, one of the best teams in the MLS, to a scoreless draw Saturday night. And while it was their third straight scoreless game – more than 270 minutes in a row – coach Stuart Campbell saw it as a momentum builder. And a case can be made that in preseason, momentum can be as important as winning. “We played well,”…

Could Rays become Team Snowbird with 2 homes?

in Sports/Top Headlines by

And now, for the worst idea ever. How about the Tampa Bay-Montreal Rays, a baseball team that would supposedly speak French, English and Southern? Such is the idea of Francois Cardinal, who writes for La Presse in Montreal. The article was picked up the Tampa Bay Times. It suggests that the Rays play half of their games in Tampa Bay and the other half in Montreal. Even for Kevin Kiermaier, that’s a lot of ground to cover. Cardinal writes that…

The Lightning gathers itself, ousts Montreal in Game Six

in Apolitical/Sports/Top Headlines by

TAMPA There were questions. There were doubts. For crying out loud, there was Carey Price. It seems as if the world was ganging up on the Tampa Bay Lightning, a team that had lost two in a row and had the highlights of its season forgotten. The Montreal Canadiens had captured the momentum of their NHL playoff series against the Bolts, and although Tampa Bay had a 3-2 lead, that seemed like a mere technicality to those who preferred to…

Lightning likes position despite momentum

in Apolitical/Sports/Top Headlines by

Would you rather have the edge? Or would you rather be on the ledge? Who has the better position here? The Tampa Bay Lightning, which is still only one win from closing out the surging Canadiens? Or the Montreal Canadiens, who seem to have found all the momentum in the desperation of being so close to elimination? The Lightning, which is at home? Or the Canadiens, who have Carey Price? The Lightning, who have repeated all year that good team…

Montreal beats the Bolts to come within 3-1

in Apolitical/Sports/The Bay and the 'Burg/Top Headlines by

Fans are born nervous, of course. It’s why they’re fans. And suddenly, how can a 3-1 lead feel so shaky? The Tampa Bay Lightning gave their fans a reason to chew their fingernails Thursday night, losing a 6-2 bashing to the Montreal Canadiens. And suddenly, a big lead doesn’t feel so big, and a comfortable margin doesn’t feel so comfortable. Does it? Yep, there the Bolts were, cruising along, on its way to a party, and it seemed that nothing…

Tyler Johnson sparks Bolts again, Tampa Bay leads 3-0

in Apolitical/Sports/Top Headlines by

There isn’t much size to the player. There wasn’t much time left on the clock. On the other hand, there isn’t that much length to a dagger, either. Tyler Johnson, who is on the verge of turning the NHL playoffs into his personal highlight film, did it again Wednesday night. On his only shot of the night, Johnson scored with 1.1 seconds left on the clock to lead the Tampa Bay Lightning to an unthinkable — and possibly undeserved —…
