This series honestly feels real similar to 2013. Bruins start off real well, go up 2-0, then 3-1, but then fail to win the series at home in Game 5. Then lose Game 6 @TOR in rather ordinary fashion.

Hopefully the Game 7 result is the same, although I'd prefer there's a lot less drama and it's a comfortable B's win!  :P

That said, B's have to play a full 60 minutes, Rask has to stay solid, the offense needs to keep generating chances, and they need to play physical. Don't let TOR dominate for large stretches.

I'm a little nervous. Hopefully they don't need another big comeback à la 2013!

Yeah, it really shouldn't have come down to a Game 7 again.

Also, my biggest fear is the B's start the game off slow and let TOR dominate. That would probably mean we're done. Really no excuses for the B's tonight.

And that first line of Pasta-Bergeron-Marchand HAS to produce. In our 3 wins, they've combined for 22 points. 3 losses.. 0 points. Coincidence? Nope.

The Bruins are really playing with fire. If they choke away this series, they're gonna have some 'splainin' to do.

Hockey ranks fourth for me of the four majors, but playoff hockey is the most exciting thing in sports.

WHAT A WIN!!! Almost had a heart attack, but I made it!

Exceptional 3rd period by the Bruins! I had my doubts to be honest, especially after that sluggish 2nd period (Especially by the defense), but they've proven all season long that when the going gets tough, they grind it out.

TD Garden was ELECTRIC tonight!  ;D

Now the #2 seed plays the #1 seed in the second round.  So stupid.
