The Bruins were not the best team going. They were ripe for an upset (I didn't believe the Caps would pull it off, so kudos to them for doing it, but the groundwork was there).
Thomas wasn't the Thomas they had before. They didn't have Horton. Some of their key contributors weren't mentally prepared. The team itself had had an iffy second half (comparable to the Caps').
You can say that being the defending champs comes with an inbuilt intimidation factor and whatnot, fine. But that team wasn't the best coming in by a long shot.
And for the record, I'll let myself use the word "impressed" to describe how I feel about what they've done so far (partly because I'm a pessimist). But not proud. If they had done what they were supposed to do at any of several points then they could have been in an even better position than they are now.
