This is my first and only game thread post of the season, I think.

The defensive depth just was not there.

The lack of adjustments on offense was disturbing.

Bad combo.

Islanders were better this series. Not much to complain about.

They will get smoked by Tampa. I will enjoy watching that happen.

Barry Trotz has a fat face. I don’t like it.

Pathetic effort late in this game.

Don’t circle the drain. Rip the bandaid off and make real changes.

Out played, out coached, out management. Hate losing the window of bergy and marchand.

With Miller and Carlo out, Steven Kampfer would’ve been useful. John Moore, too. But you have to play with the guys on the roster and the Bruins got outplayed four games in a row.

Series turned when Carlo went down. Got lucky to win that game on pretty much a fluke and haven’t won since.
And tonights game turned on the Mcavoy non call elbow. Be nice to actually have a healthy defense in the playoffs.

What is all this nonsense about the series being about “the two fan bases” ? So dumb.

They played so well for the first 4 games but came out of them 2-2. Just didn’t capitalize enough when it was in their favor and then game 5 had the dumb penalties and today was a dumpster fire.

I will say that it's rare for me to not absolutely despise B's opponents in a playoff series, but I don't totally hate these guys. They play solid hockey without too much dirty shit.

Butch on the hot seat? I think he got pantsed badly in this series
I'm flabbergasted that they couldn't figure out how to generate offense outside of the powerplay and the Bergeron line. Taylor Hall uselessly tossing pucks into the middle of the offensive zone over and over again is emblematic of their lack of ability to adjust to the suffocating style of play that the Islanders employ in their own zone.

It's like they figured that eventually a puck would get through to the net. It never did. That's on Cassidy. You can't win a series with one functioning but brilliant line.

I don’t mind them, they get after it

It feels like we just watched Tuuka’s last game as a Bruin to me.

“Thank you, Tuuka”

Quick, name the second best player Sweeney has added to the team since 2015. Coyle?

And of course, if the fans all know what you should have done, you have to be right or you are just bad. And he's bad.

Throw in low ceiling kids like Frederic instead of potential impact kids, and you have a team riding the 2011 core to the ground.

Good news is that David Backes' 2016 5 yr /$30 deal expires with the season.

It was really nice when Hall first got here and they didn't look like a second-round team anymore.

I'm pissed that this team hasn't been able to win another Cup with the best line in the game. When Bergeron, Marchand, Pastrnak, and McAvoy are all in the Hall of Fame we're going to look back on these prodigal years I'm afraid.
