There's a decent amount of parity at the top of the NHL. Nashville, TB, BOS, WASH, PITT, Winnipeg, and Vegas all could win it. Not like the NBA...

Hockey is very different than basketball, in that in basketball one superstar can tilt a series whereas in hockey that isn't really the case (except for a really hot goalie).  Hockey is very much the epitome of a team sport.

They do all that and yet can't score and take the lead, while TOR just comes into Boston's end and scores.. smh.

This is an awful time for Rask to go cold.

Yeah, meanwhile Andersen for TOR has been insane lately.

I hope the Bruins do not become the next victim of a blown 3-1 series lead meme.

Btw, does anybody else think that the new format (started last year?) for the NHL playoffs is totally asinine? So, the 2nd and 3rd best teams in the conference are currently playing each other in the 1st round and the winner of this series goes on to play the BEST team in the conference in the Eastern Semis?

I get it, the winner of each division plays the two wildcards with 2nd and 3rd in each division playing each other, but they seem to be relying too heavily on forcing division matchups rather than using overall records. This being the solution to whatever problem there was previously seems a little ridiculous.

To be fair, I don't think anyone's forgotten them blowing that 3-0 lead to PHI in 2010...  :(

YES. You're spot on. It's stupid, and everyone knows it.

I mean, Winnipeg vs. Nashville in the 2nd round?? HUH!? That should be the conference finals SMH.

Yes, its absolutely moronic.

Nothing else to say, but its the NHL and moronic is normal for them.

Ugh. Thanks, Bruins.

Stupid game plan tonight. The leads whiffed on about 4 long passes behind the d because the Bruins defensemen continue to pinch. And it's not like they're scoring.

There's still Game 7, in Boston, but I'm not too confident at this point.

This series honestly feels real similar to 2013. Bruins start off real well, go up 2-0, then 3-1, but then fail to win the series at home in Game 5. Then lose Game 6 @TOR in rather ordinary fashion.

Hopefully the Game 7 result is the same, although I'd prefer there's a lot less drama and it's a comfortable B's win!  :P

That said, B's have to play a full 60 minutes, Rask has to stay solid, the offense needs to keep generating chances, and they need to play physical. Don't let TOR dominate for large stretches.
