This is going to be a hell of a series, I think the Bruins can win this one but it's not going to be easy. Roloson is a great goalie and he has the ability to get in a groove and it seems he's in one right now. Thomas has been huge for us up to this point and I don't expect anything to change.

The keys will be to stay out of the box, their PP is deadly. I think our forwards will be able to cycle the puck on Tampa's D similar to what we did with Philly.

Not to nitpick, but why does Tampa's second line only have two people on it?

I'm going with Bruins in 6. I'm still revelling in the win over the Flyers but this could be the year the Bruins go to the Stanley Cup Finals.

This thread title makes me happy.

Now give me some good news on Bergy, and I'm really happy.

It's going to be a tough one. Both teams are on a hot streak. TB has won 7 in a row (8 of last 9) and Boston have won 5 in a row (8 of last 9).

Should be an easy series if Seguin plays.

Boston in 5 if Bergy is healthy, Boston in 6 if he isn't.

I'm not sure why that dude even pretends to like hockey. 90% of his posts involve wrestling (enough said)

Because they usually double shift someone from the first line on that wing and play 7 defensemen.

Voting before learning Bergy's status is useless.

If Bergy is fine and we play like we have been; we win in 5 or 6.

If he is out it is a total crap-shoot, but I could see us being swept.

We'll soon learn just how important Bergeron is.
But, of course, Julien will be blamed if we don't advance.

If Bergeron plays Tampa is a speedbump. Roloson has played a lot and is old, we ought to be able to expose him. It'll come down to shutting down the TB offense and power play and Bergeron is a HUGE part of that.

Like I said on the main board, I am not one bit scared of Tampa. They beat a Crosby/Malkin less Penguins team that still took them to 7 games, and beat an overrated Caps team that if the Caps even faced anyone in the first round besides the Rangers they would have lost.

Should be mentioned that, that will change if Simon Gagne returns for Tampa (he would fill that empty 2nd line LW slot).

Regardless of the outcome, Steve Yzerman is a Hockey God.

Not entirely true. We have played with 7 dmen for a good chunk of the year. Boucher likes that setup as it gives him lots of options both up front and on the backend.

I was talking about the 2nd line. If Gagne is healthy he will fill on the 2nd line and maybe Blair Jones gets scratched.
