The [Monday] Papers

"If you study the history and crunch the numbers, you start to get a clearer picture of the challenge facing your Tampa Bay Lightning," John Romano writes for the Tampa Bay Times.

"Technically speaking, the team is toast. Give or take a miracle. At least that's the pessimistic interpretation of the statistics in front of me. Since the National Hockey League went to its best-of-seven format in the Stanley Cup final, the team leading after five games has gone on to win the series 78.3 percent of the time. That's disturbing. In fact, if you're a Lightning fan, it's downright depressing. And, heaven knows, depressed and disturbed is no way to start a new week. So we're here to offer five reasons why you should tell hockey historians to go shove it today."

You'll have to click through to find out what those mildly persuasive at best reasons are.
