Well, a truly heroic effort in Game 5 by Tampa. Easily their best game of the series. The only weakness was the continuing propensity of Vasy to let in some weak goals, despite his otherwise solid play. That could still kill them anytime.
Now, ironically, comes the even harder test (according to stats), keeping Colorado from hoisting the Cup in Tampa tomorrow. History has shown exactly the current pattern, i.e., the favored team losing the seeming sure-bet win for the Cup, only to go on the road and win it convincingly. Maybe, not too surprising, as teams coming back home have a tendency to relax, even if subconsciously, and play with less intensity and focus. We'll soon find out if Tampa can overcome this trend.
If Tampa wins tomorrow, then Game 7 is truly anybody's contest, and enormous pressure would fall upon Colorado's shoulders. Tampa might even be the favorite, if it got that far.
