You can rattle off the reasons why that will be the case, too. This was a team that was doing historic things in the regular season. It also adds pressure; the Tampa Bay Times newspaper announced it would produce a hardcover coffee-table book on the Lightning's season regardless of the ultimate outcome.
Before the Canucks' 5-game loss to the Kings, who went on to win the Stanley Cup, no Presidents' Trophy victor had ever lost in the first round in five games.
Julien BriseBois says his faith in Jon Cooper has not wavered.
The Blue Jackets won Game 4 by the final of 7-3, sending the Lightning back to Tampa Bay and simultaneously shocking the National Hockey League world.
Do any other rounds matter if you can't win the Stanley Cup?
Have you ever seen a team this apologetic? And that starts in goal.

After being down 3-0 in the first game, the Blue Jackets fought back and won 4-3. Bobrosvky was fantastic, while Vasilevskiy simply wasn't as dominant as he had been in the regular season. But the 2018-2019 Los Angeles Kings had a mostly healthy, yet aging and underperforming team. Will there be a Blue Jackets bandwagon?
The team also sent out a Tweet to congratulate the Blue Jackets for moving on to the second round.
Bobrovsky's performance didn't occur in a vacuum, however, and credit for the defensive performance of the Blue Jackets can and should be shared with those who insulated the crease.
Now, contrast that with the Columbus Blue Jackets, an unlikely bunch.
If you need to adopt a team, they should be America's squad (last year, hopefully you jumped on the Vegas Golden Knights bandwagon that I argued for) as the playoffs continue. "It's going to be an easier matchup than Tampa Bay was, at least on paper".
Could Panarin be tempted to remain as a Blue Jacket though should Columbus go really deep in the postseason? "I think the best thing for me to do is take a little bit of time to think through this". From there, they took complete control of the series and the Lightning were left in the dust.
North Korea's Kim to meet Putin as tensions rise with US
South Korea's Joint Chiefs of Staff said it is analyzing the test but did not specifically say what the weapon appeared to be. It was not clear how Kim might travel to Russian Federation , which shares a border with North Korea.
In case you weren't able to catch any of the series or even Games 3 or 4, the crowd was incredible inside Nationwide Arena, truly giving the Blue Jackets a home-ice advantage. Will they learn from this failure or will it be a crippling blow that results in the roster getting blown up in the future? Just how good were the Lightning before this collapse?
It can't be overlooked, either, how influential special teams was on the series.
There's a lot to be cheerful about in Columbus right now - last night the Blue Jackets made history as the first team to sweep a President's Trophy winning club in the first round. By simply not giving them the chances.
It's hard to argue the Lightning should have purposefully lost more games this season. And who knows how far that will take them? There's nothing to do now but to look ahead to next season. Montreal won both series as a huge underdog before losing in the conference finals.
Just 22 months removed from becoming the first team in a generation to win consecutive championships, captain Sidney Crosby and the rest of the Penguins are at a crossroads.
