If it weren’t for a terrible bounce at the end of the game, Tampa would have had the perfect banner night game. Tampa came out tonight to prove that this is their defending season and they would do anything to keep it that way. They demolish Chicago in this one by a score of 5-1.

Tampa Bay got their goals from Ondrej Palat, Mathieu Joseph, Anthony Cirelli, Steven Stamkos, and Brayden Point. Dylan Strome got the lone goal for Chicago. It was awesome to see Stammer in there once again after that magical moment he had on his lone period of play in the final last year. Tampa is rolling right off the start.
These two teams face off again on Friday night in Tampa again. I would assume something similar is bound to happen again that game. We will see.
