That should have 4 on 4...Miller took the Dive on the so called trip...Refs missed a blatant cross check by the licker on Point...

Maintain that the only way Boston wins this series is if they play with a man advantage.

There was no dive on that tripping penalty.  The TB player simply took his legs out from under Miller as he was changing direction.

Marchand did clearly get away with a cross-check though.

Way to earn that goal back!  That was a blistering shot by Nash.

Uh, maybe they should just ban those skates.  That is stupid.

Hope this doesn't get in Rask's head, though.  He's been having a really good game otherwise.

Loved what I saw going into Tampa and sucking the energy right out of them. Rask looked sharp and that first line is unstoppable. Great to see our 21 year old with 6 goals in 8 playoff games and super tough make up.

Good appetizer to the big game in two hours!

Bs match up with Tampa way better than they matched up with Toronto. I could see the Bs taking this in 5.

I thought the Bruins would lose Game 1, maybe sneak a win in Game 2; I did NOT see them thrashing the Lightning in Game 1. What an impressive win.

Nice win by the B's today!! Complete effort, and Rask was splendid too.

I will say though, that Tampa crowd/environment is NOTHING compared to Toronto's. Even when TB scored and had chances, that crowd felt relatively "silent" lol. There were a lot of B's fans there too though.

I predicted Bruins in 6 before the series, and still think so. I feel confident we take our home games @TD Garden, and getting the Game 1 win at TB is huge. Basically, home ice is ours again.

Hopefully the B's feed off the Garden energy tonight and start off fast and up-tempo.

The refs were AWFUL in Game 2 and practically gift wrapped a goal for TB and pretty much took one golden chance of a goal away from BOS (Marchand was clearly slashed on that sequence). Yet the B's still were in it for much of the game on the road.

B's just have to start off well and CAN'T play as sluggish as they did Monday night. Tampa practically dominated much of the 1st period. B's need to do the same tonight and hopefully capitalize on their chances.

I'm still really confident B's take this series in 6, but they got to protect home ice IMHO.

LETS GO B'S!!!  ;D 8)

Tampa is smoking us since game 2. 1st period they were moving like lightning and us like the tortoise. They are going to need to figure out something and fast.

A little better slowing them down in second but still nothing materializng for us in offense. Some dumb penalties not helping. It is possible toncomeback in 3rd but it will take a desperate feeling by our top line- Hopeful something crazy happens.

The refs yet again have been extremely horrible for us...

But yeah the B's have to play with more urgency. It's insane how they go for long stretches without shooting the puck on net. In that 2nd period, did they even shoot the puck in the final 10 minutes? Besides Grzelcyk in the final minute, I don't think so. Not going to cut it.

Rask is literally the only reason we aren't down like 6-1 right now to be honest.

We look so overmatched last two games- dissappointing- without stellar rask, we stand no chance
