Maybe they'll disallow a goal by us or confirm a bad goal by them, but I'm braced for the inevitable bullshit. The only way to overcome it is to take this game from the B's and the refs. Build a multi-goal lead and then hold it. We win Game 3, and Boston will start to come undone.
Right on the money

Solid playoff road win

Solid win. First line is still a complete dumpster fire, but maybe the empty netter gets Stammer going.

Win the next.

Wow that was just textbook. Cooper has got to be happy as hell. A coach's dream of a game.

It's amazing watching the Bruins go from thinking they'd feast with last change to having to matchup against us instead. They started out putting their top line out against Stamkos...PB&J ate them up.

Cirelli chipping in on the 3rd line is incredible. That's 2 games with good secondary scoring. I don't know if Stamkos/Kucherov/Miller are ever going to get going, but it may not matter if they can simply play a defensively sound like they did tonight.

That was an absolutely clinical dismantling and smothering of the Bruins. Mission accomplished, reclaimed home ice adv. Now to get greedy.

Thatís one of the best away wins in team history. Right up there with Game 3 against the Flyers in 2004 and most of the 2015 Rangers series.

Tonight reminded me a lot of the Rangers series.

Boston may be strategically screwed. They took the Bergeron line away from the Point line and the Point line absolutely feasted. By the end of the First Period they were putting the Bergeron line, deliberately, out on Point's because that's the only line that can skate with them. Problem is (for them) if those two lines cancel they don't have the depth to beat Tampa Bay even with the Stamkos line sleeping.

Lightning again committed to defense. So far Boston just does not have the overall team speed. Point line has been just dynamite. Donít think Boston can hold the Stamkos line forever. Get this effort again Friday nite would be outstanding. Go Bolts!!

That didn't even look like 'instigating' worth a penalty. He went over there, got in front of him, offered a challenge, and they both threw down.

I wonder why we didn't see more of this during the regular season?
