Melrose approaches Code Red
Very funny post today over at Barry Melrose Rocks, where the blog's namesake is advised like so:
So be warned, dear reader. You must proceed with caution if your name is Barry Melrose. But then again, Barry likes to throw caution to the wind. So maybe proceeding with caution is out of the question. Ah, hell with it. Let's take this thing head on. Bull by the horns. Stuff like that.It's getting ugly for the Lightning, who have yet to pick up their first win and have scored only eight goals in four games. Three of the team's next five games are against three of the four remaining undefeated clubs: Minnesota, San Jose and Buffalo.
Tampa gets Atlanta on Tuesday and Toronto a week later, but has a very difficult November schedule and could be bottomed out a few weeks from now.
Melrose has his work cut out for him.
