Chowder Staff Predict the First Round

We decided we'd put together staff predictions for the first round of the playoffs, and since those start tonight we've gotta publish them before the games begin. Without further ado, here are the Stanley Cup of Chowder staff predictions! I used a google doc for this, so without further ado... Staff Predicitions! Pittsburgh Penguins vs Columbus Blue Jackets: 60% Columbus Jackets in 5. Teams always win when Horton is laid up. - TomServo42 Tampa Bay Lightning vs Montreal Canadiens: 70% Tampa Lightning in 7, because Steven Stamkos rules and I think Bishop will come back and be solid. -...

Stamkos before and after: how is he doing since his return?

A look at Stamkos's before and after. I think all of us can see from watching Steven Stamkos play that he's not one hundred percent. And of course that's to be expected after an injury like he had. It'll take a long healing period for him to feel normal and to get back his stride completely. That's all both expected and fairly accurate, according to how Stamkos himself described his return. But is he "a shell of himself?" Has his production plummeted somehow to the point where he's no longer the weapon he once was, a reason to count the Lightning out? Not so fast. Below are Stamkos's...

Stamkos can laugh about his hat trick

Steven Stamkos called it an “uncharacteristic hat trick.” Of course it was easy to joke about since he ended up notching the overtime game-winner for the Tampa Bay Lightning in a 4-3 decision over the Buffalo Sabres Saturday night.His first goal came with 14 seconds left in the first period, tying the game, 2-2.He scored the game’s next goal, albeit for the Buffalo Sabres.Midway through the third Cory Conacher was being called for a hooking penalty. With the delayed call, the Lightning pulled goaltender Ben Bishop for the extra attacker.Only problem was a pass from Stamkos off the...
About last night …

About last night …

Let's get negativity out of the way right off the top. Call me Danny Downer, but if your Montreal Canadiens are outshot 37-19 on Tuesday night in Tampa, I'm not entirely confident they'll win 4-1. Steven Stamkos is not Vincent Trochek. Ben Bishop is not Dan Ellis. And the Lightning, battling the Canadiens for home-ice advantage in a first-round series, are a much better team than their Florida cousins, who'll be watching the playoffs on TV.

GIF: Steven Stamkos scores on his own net on a delayed penalty

By Nick Stoico Tampa Bay Lightning forward Steven Stamkos is one of the most electric goal scorers in the NHL. His ability to always find the back of the net is impeccable, as evidenced by his 23 goals in 28 games this season, but this skill may not always play out into his favor. On […]

Success of 'junkyard dog' power play not difficult to figure out, Cooper says

In its past seven games, the Lightning has gone 9-for-29 on the power play. The reasons are not that complicated, coach Jon Cooper said. Steven Stamkos is back from a broken right tibia and playing at a high level and the addition of Ryan Callahan, a player, Cooper said, who is "fearless" in front of the net.

Week 23's Free Agents and Trade Targets

Sunday Night Lookers to help you get ahead in your league. This week has been really weird. By that, I mean the league has been lit up by those who you would actually expect to light it up. Malkin, Giroux, Stamkos, Benn, Crosby—the big names have pushed all those sneaky squeakers back down the charts. That’s good for those who drafted as they were expected to, but it’s less so for those in need of a good, low-cost playoff pickup. I will find you a couple of low-lying gems, though. Don’t you worry your pretty little trackpad. PICKUP OF THE WEEK: Michael Cammalleri - Cgy -...
