Ryan Callahan thinks the Lightning's experience will help them in Game 7 on Wednesday.

I think if you're not used to it, it could be a little bit of an overwhelming experience leading up to the game. So you're definitely a lot calmer and you try to rub that off on the younger guys too and let them know that it is another game.

We wish we didn't have to keep writing about players licking other players, but Marchand continues to do this, so here we are. "I don't know what the difference is in that and spitting in somebody's face," Callahan said. "It's unfortunate that he goes to that level to do that. But it doesn't take us off our game." Marchand had a similar incident with Leafs forward Leo Komarov in the first round, so it'll be interesting to see if the league decides to hand out some supplemental discipline this time around.
