Huge win for the B's. Really needed that heading up to enemy territory.

I honestly can say I dislike the Habs more than the Lakers.

Nice comeback.  Anybody who doesn't believe in momentum should have watched the second half of the third period.

So happy they pulled this one out. These two games have been extremely even (well, not the first two periods of each) so it is only fitting that they are tied 1-1. Rask and the defense now have to start playing like they did in the first round - way too many goals for them to be giving up.

What a crazy 3rd period. We would have been dead in the water if we were down 0-2 going to Montreal.

The resilience of this Bruins team is really something.

I hate Carey Price, for being both lucky and good.  Anything he doesn't stop hits the post.

I like him a bit more now.

Great goal by the rookie in his first playoff game.

the bruins are going to have to win 2 more games like this. they have any more games where they give up more than 1 goal and they'll lose.

Watching Tukka play this post season has been like watching Bill Buckner's error for 7 games straight. I am so done with him.

Tuuka would look a lot better if his offense could score more than 2 goals per game.

What a truly awful performance from the Bruins in games 6 and 7. Rask was off, the defense was off, the offense was off. Disappointing.

He really wouldn't though. He would still look the way he does, which is bad. The offense looking better wouldn't make him look better. You would still freak out every time the puck got near him just like we do now.  Maybe there'd be less times and therefore less freakouts, but what it comes down to is he got outplayed badly and made a huge negative difference in the process. Others wet the bed too in a big way, but at least sometimes they sorta almost looked like they were trying.

Tuuka rask is not the reason we lost the series. The vast majority were defensive lapses that nobody could stop. Our offense croaked. 1 goal in the last two games combined and we're pointing the finger at tuuka? Lucic and krejci were no shows, our young defense made errors, and we never adequately replaced seidenberg at the trade deadline
