First time the Blue Jackets ever won a playoff series
First time a Presidents Trophy winner has been swept in the first round

Tampa Bay tied the NHL record for wins in the regular season. It was an absolute slaughter.

First game Tampa Bay went up 3-0 in the first period.... After that they got their face kicked in.

absolutely unbelievable.

Tampa fans now know the pain us Canucks fans felt in 2012. Well, at least we won a game in that series, the same can't be said here.

In my 33 years of life on this planet I have never seen something this outrageous in professional sports.

What a fucking colossal collapse. Un-fucking-real.

Biggest upset in pro-sports history.

Team that ties the all-time record for most wins in the regular season gets swept in the first round of the playoffs by a team that's never won a playoff series.

There's nothing I can think of that comes close.

Tampa just extended their coach right before the playoffs, right? Wonder if they are regretting that, lol.

I feel weird cheering in favor of an Ohio anything for anything, but I have to laugh at Tampa Bay's faceplant.

We have this sweep now. We have Cavs coming back from 3-1 in the finals.....and unfortunately, we also have The Tribe blowing a 3-1 lead to the Cubs. Crazy shit happens with this states teams lol.

Edit: In bigger news, my mom and step dad went to the game and didn’t invite me. Bummerrrrr duuude.

As someone who has Bob in both of my fantasy leagues and have Duchene in one of them as well, this makes me fucking happy. Honestly, I'm just happy for any kind of success for Bob. Flyers gave up him so fucking early.

The Bolts went 3-0 against the Blue Jackets during the regular season and outscored them 17-3. 13.6% of their final goal differential came from those three games alone.

I said in the other thread, this has to be the biggest upset in team sports history. I don’t think an 8 seed has ever swept a 1 seed, much less a team as dominant as Tampa.

Equivalent would be the 73 win golden state warriors being swept in the first round.
