Looks just like an original six matchup. How awesome would colour vs colour be for this series

Amazing. I don't understand when people say they don't like Tampa Bay's look. If Tampa were an O6 team, those same people would likely be claiming that they are among the best dressed in the NHL.

True, but these guys kinda beat them to the punch:

This thread has been eerily quiet ever since the Lightning scored...

1. color vs. color always looks like a bunch of peewees

2. 4-7 games of the same uniform matchup would be very very boring.

Well yeah, and that's my point. In a vacuum the Lightning have very good uniforms. Unfortunately, everything is relative.

Lightning straight up out-hustling Chicago. Poor decisions, no effective puck movement, possessions aren't productive. Lightning are good. I'm muting their fans on Twitter for my sanity but yeah, they're a fast bunch in blue.

And that's why people don't like them. They don't play in a vacuum. They copied the look of a much more established team, who's now in their same division no less.

A post to the face and a goalie interference for Kris Versteeg. I laughed aloud seeing that.

On the ticket thing, two points. First, anyone calling the arena could buy tickets. The restriction was for online sales solely. Second, all tickets were sold during presales and anything a Chicago fan would have an opportunity to buy was coming from the secondary market anyway.

Given the behavior seen at the little rallies and such they staged here it appears limiting them was the right call.

Did they about out of state Lightning fans?!?!

Think about little Jimmy from Chunky, Mississippi wanted to go see his beloved Lightning in the finals, but his parents have to tell him the Lightning don't want him.

What part of the out-of-state credit card restriction being a Ticketmaster thing are you not getting. People could still (and would be smart to avoid further fees by) call(ing) the box office.

He's actually been decent tonight, which is weird since he's usually atrocious.

God. So many turnovers.

I'm not entirely sure yet, but I think I'd like to see the Blackhawks win this thing. All things being equal from a fan standpoint, you gotta go with the better uniforms, right?

Lightning championship, it'd be defeating 4x Original Six franchises to do it (Wings, Habs, Rags, Hawks).
