1. Will Vincent Le Cavalier extend his five-game points streak?
Finney’s number was goalless in Lightning’s 4-2 loss to the Bruins.
2. Willcontinue to dominate the ?
No, but he had no chance. Prior to the match, it was announced that Reed would miss six weeks due to a muscle tear. Without him, the pilots could not cope with the Panthers at all, and they lost, 5-2.
3. Will there be any transfer from the New York Rangers playoff series with the Ottawa Senators?
Not right. Chris Neal got a two minute penalty, but overall the match was tough.
4. Is Jimmy Howard eyesight really improved?
Can. Howard conceded three goals in 24 shots to the Columbus Blue Jackets. Neither of the Red Wings played well, so it’s hard to blame seeing Howard for the loss.
5. What will the first game of the post-Lindy Raff era be like in Buffalo?
Nothing looked very different from Sabers, who lost 3-1 to the Maple Leafs. It may take more than a change of training to fix this team.
