After Nazem Kadri scored the biggest goal of his career Wednesday night to give the Colorado Avalanche a 3-1 series lead heading home the Tampa Bay Lightning find themselves in a very vulnerable position.
However don't count the two time defending Stanley cup champions out yet. With all the talent the Lightning have and the way coach Jon Cooper tried to spin it to possibly motivate his team heading to Colorado knowing they have to win or we will have a new Stanley cup champion.
What ever the case it seems the Lightning are ready to go especially after Lightning's forward Big Rigg Pat Maroon would give one of the most bad ass quotes in Playoff history.
Pat Maroon clearly wants to continue playing and Maroon made that clear in the post game interview.
"We have to go win a fucking game right now. Sorry for my French." -Pat Maroon
If that doesn't get your teammates fired up I don't know what else would.
