VALTTERI FILPPULA RUMORS

Lightning Lock Down Rangers In 2-0 Game 5 Win, Take 3-2 Series Lead

NEW YORK — Scoring goals made the Tampa Bay Lightning one of the NHL’s most entertaining teams this season. Playing defense for the first time in three games has them within a victory of the Stanley Cup finals for the second time in franchise history. Steven Stamkos set up Valtteri Filppula’s go-ahead goal and scored another and the Lightning pushed...

Video: Carey Price makes a great glove save on Valtteri Filppula

The Montreal Canadiens have climbed back into their series with the Tampa Bay Lightning and Carey Price has been a big reason why. He has made a ton of huge saves, but this glove save on Valtteri Filppula may be the best. Filppula received a sharp pass from Steven Stamkos and turned to fire it at the net. He flubbed the puck a bit which gave Price enough time to slide over and get...

Haas: Future Headline – Lightning Deal Filppula At Draft

Filppula could bring a quality blueliner. While many fans have soured on Valtteri Filppula due to his -10 rating thus far (point-wise, he’s only five off last year’s pace), it would still be an absolute shock to see GM Steve Yzerman dilute the team’s depth at center during the season by trading him. In the offseason though, it’s a move that wouldn’t be shocking at all...

Incredible billboard for the Tampa Bay Lightning

Valtteri Filppula has a pretty hard shot. How hard is it? Enough to blaze across a highway and rip another billboard in two. As seen on Reddit Hockey, Filppula is on one side of the highway taking a slapper. The Tampa Bay Lightning also purchased a billboard on the other side of the road with a phony company’s ad being torn apart by the puck. Awesome concept and execution. Wonder...
