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

It really is. Some of these match ups should honestly be conference finals (like Winnipeg- Nashville). So stupid...

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

Ridiculous. At least TB can be glad they faced a wild card in the first round, whereas Boston had to play one of the top teams.

Just absolutely stupid. But I have come to expect that from the NHL. The NHL product of hockey is unbelievably good but the League's Front office has been horrid for decades. This type of playoff format is about the dumbest I have seen since pre playoff college football. The 5 billion different AllStar formats they have had is embarrassing for a top 5 sport in America.

I will give them credit for the 3-on-3 overtime format, which I find exciting.

The Bruins closed out this series.

Time for the Celtics to follow suit tomorrow!

From a full-on choke job by the Bruins, to an exciting win thanks to an awesome 3rd period.

Weird how similar this series was to the Bruins-Leafs series of 2013.

Quite bummed that a busy night at work kept me from being able to watch game 7, but I'm very happy they pulled out the win.

I was periodically checking the scores on my computer when I had a chance, and was a little worried when I saw the score at the end of the 2nd period.  One of my co-workers was convinced they were done.  That must have been a heck of a 3rd period.

Tom Brady was in the house. That's why they made the comeback and won.

My Toronto friend and I were trolling one another throughout both series.

After the Leafs' collapse in the last couple minutes in 2013 I sent him 5 emails. The first titled "E," the second "K", then "O", "H", and "C". So in his inbox it read:

C
H
O
K
E

He loved it. 

Tonight I dropped the hammer at the end via text. It's nice getting the last laugh.

Good start for the Bruins so far.  Rask looks a bit more composed and confident, and the defense has so far avoided any costly mistakes.

Tampa Bay sure is a lot stronger in the neutral zone and on the fore check than Toronto, that much is obvious.  The margin for error is going to be much smaller against the Lightning.  Boston will need to avoid sloppy passes coming out of their own defensive zone.

Overall, these teams appear pretty evenly matched.  I think is going to be a good series.  A bit unfortunate it's in the 2nd round, though, due to the NHL's stupid playoff structure.

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.
The rim is looking bigger and bigger every game.
