As expected, the Dirty Kadris couldn't get it done. I hope all the nancies have gotten all the nancyness out of their nancy systems cause this is going to be an epic battle. No time for any of that shit. These guys are loaded with skill. And unlike Toronto this team has won something in my lifetime. But this is still Tampa so ...

Make the Bolts feel the pain.

Can someone recommend a place to watch somewhere between Watertown and landsdowne? I’m going to the Alice In Chains show tonight and would normally just hig a bar in landsdowne, but with the Sox game I can’t imagine those aren’t going to be totally packed.

Some place in the Allston/Brighton area? Tavern in the Square is a bit douchy but they have a bunch of TVs and seating.

My wife has to work. Boo.

In my anger, I forgot to include a positive message. Let's fucking go!!!!! I'll be staring at my phone all game and standing far enough away to not get hit by a foul ball.

I'm going to be watching this on my phone from something called "Power Beer Fest" I might not remember the end of this one.

I honestly don't feel like I deserve this team after the way I acted at the end of the second period Wednesday night. I vow to be better going forward.

The Lightning are a great team, but I think the Bruins match up slightly better against them than they did against the Leafs. That said, just fuck them up in every way possible, win the series early and rest up for Pittsburgh or Washi.... uh, yeah, Pittsburgh.

Feel good about this series and particularly this game. I think getting through the really tough first round and blowing the doors off in the 3rd to seal it will have them loose and feeling good.

Their recent history has been full of extremely close 1st round series followed by 2nd rounds where they just dominate. It’s only three examples but the Rangers in ‘13 after the comeback, the Flyers in ‘11 after Montreal, and I’d even count the Flyers the year before after the series against Buffalo (didn’t go 7 but it was a tough series and had that 2OT game). Injuries were the only thing stopping them from similarly finishing Philly early. None of those teams were the #1 seed of course, but I’m choosing to believe this narrative I just made up.

I must confess I’m attending a wedding today at 530 which is just brutal timing for both of today’s games.

The B's seem to be actively trying to hit Vasilevskiy up high at hard angles. Maybe they've seen him cheating away from the pipe on video.

They are playing SO sloppy. They are rattled right now, just have to hope they don't give up a goal right now.

Some dude just came flying from all the way across the ice and got his elbow up high on Krejci. Im not the only one who saw that, right?

I don't find this surprising. Endure the Bolts surge after so much time off and we can do this - but need to put the puck on net and cut the sloppy passing and clearing.
