Call me nostalgic, but I can’t count out a team with crazy old Roli between the pipes come playoff time. The only disagreement I have here is the TB/Pitt series. Take the lightning in 6, provided the old bastard doesn’t break. In fact, I can see TBay in the conference finals (not the SCF) if Roloson holds up. Well, I hate to say I told you so Scott, but, well...Dwayne Roloson is currently the leader in GAA (1.77) and sv% (.949) and has blanked the Capitals twice in the regular season, including his first start after being traded from the Islanders to the Lightning. 6-0 in elimination games, and with just enough batshit power left in his tank, I think Roli is the difference in round 2.
