I don't think this game necessarily says anything about any potential playoff series we get, just because the Bs have played TB tough the last couple years and still were outclassed in the playoffs last year, but man, it would be nice to beat these guys tonight. Has the potential to be one of the best regular season games of the year.

So excited for this game tonight. Like IK said above, it doesn't mean much in terms of if they can beat them in a playoff series. It is a measuring stick to see how good they really are. The Garden should be rocking tonight.

I'm already thinking of the pizza I'm going to eat during it. Not sure why that's the first thing to come to mind right now. Time for an early lunch I guess.

I've been looking forward to this game for weeks, especially with the Bruins playing as well as theey have been. I might be more excited about this than I was for the Super Bowl.

Echoing what was said by others in this thread, I am excited for this game tonight. Should be a playoff atmosphere.

No Pastrnak.....but then again, Cave, Donato, JFK and Kampfer each got about 15 mins. TOI in the last TB game

Lightning fan here (but grew up in Natick so still have some Bruins in my blood). Back end of a back to back for the Bolts. Tough to criticize a team that has only lost 11 games all year, but they have been going through the motions more now, than at any point of the season. Their overall talent is so good, they usually find a way to get points, even on their low effort nights. Goal is to get to playoffs healthy while resting some key players. Regardless of outcome, both teams look primed to make a run deep into playoffs. Should be a good tilt.

I'm going to like Pasta's Dunkin' commercial until about the 6th time it plays, which will probably be sometime during the early second period.

If these two match up in the playoffs and Tampa is just better, that’s fine, but if there’s more ref bullshit I’m gonna lose it.

I've never seen the refs miss call after call against the lightning before. Nope. Not once. I'm sure they're totally going to swallow whistles on the next bruins penalty
