I think the Caps only successful response to the Bolts this game would be HITZ with a heavy forecheck, but I don't think they'll bother doing that in a meaningless game.

Is this meaningless? I didn't bother trying to figure out how the qualifiers/round robin works. Doesn't this affect seeding or anything?

The games work like the regular season points system and the 1-4 seeds are determined by who has the most points within the round robin. So if Tampa or Washington sweeps the round robin, then they might play Montreal or some other low seed that bumbles their way through the qualifier.

Compared to the qualifiers, they are next to meaningless.

But sure, they do decide seeding and it's probably better to be #1 than #4.

Oh, ok. Thanks - I wasn't really clear that there was a distinction between the qualifiers and the round robin.

Pretty much equivalent to late regular season games when both teams have already clinched. Goal is not to get anyone injured and maybe work some fundamental stuff.

Any teams needing lessons on what to do when up a goal and on the power play in the last 3 minutes should do the opposite of Winnipeg.

Is the carol of the bells poo poo going on here something significant to either of these teams, or just a remarkably poor choice by the event staff?

Thought I saw an interference in the Lightning zone about a minute before that but, sure, why not call the stick foul with 8 seconds to go instead?
