Credit where credit is due, Tampa’s D has been real good. Not many good chances for the Bruins.
Tampa’s team D has been excellent...the forecheck, their NZ pressure, and in the DZ.

They’re a really talented team that is well coached, and no doubt that’s a significant reason for the bruins poor play.

This really can't be overstated enough. No matter what happens in this series, it was a very positive development year. Tampa is stacked everywhere and has recent deep playoff experience. This Bruins team is still developing and that's showing in this series. They're not half assing it. They're just not as good yet.

Also, it's a shame there isn't an extra off day this series. Feel like they could use a day away from hockey to get their heads clear and still have a day to practice between games. Alas...

Agreed. I totally underestimated Tampa. They were coasting the 2nd half of the season, they're a great team. I still think the Bruins can play with them though

Tampa's D looks like the Bruins D after scoring in Game 7 in 2011. The Bruins just can't do anything. It's pretty impressive, to be honest.

Riley Nash must be hurt still. He’s been useless.
