Great playoff game, Lighting took it to the B's early then the Bruins got back into a groove.

Unfortunately B's could not get the equalizer in the 3rd, late goal for TB and the series heads back to Boston for Games 3 & 4.

Nice to see McAvoy get his 1st playoff goal, B's will be ready Wed. night!

Tough loss the Bís just need to do what got them here, the results will come.

Put this game behind and get right back at it Fri. night, flying into Tampa tomorrow AM might hit up their block party Fri night

That hook call on Accari needs to get these refs investigated. At least the Hockey Gods rewarded the B's with the shortie...

Maybe making up for letting Marchand get away with what should have been a major penalty for his low-bridge hit?

I take that back, the no-call on Kucherov that led to the Stamlos goal was also pretty terrible.

Badly officiated game.

City of Tampa having a great time at the expense of visiting Bruins fans as they should be, not over yet I do not plan on watching the B’s season end tomorrow!

As others have mentioned I typically don’t like using officiating as an excuse, but the B’s really have to question what it’s going to take to get these calls.

Really bizarre listening to Phil Esposito talk about the Bruins ‘goonery’ style of playing.............I think Mr. Esposito knows a few things after playing during the Big Bad Bruins days, he as far as color comentary is hockey’s version of Tommy Heinsohn.

Great playoff game today as a hockey fan regardless of who won just a great atmosphere in Tampa.

Truly a disappointing end to such an promising season, Tampa Bay is a great club and showed why they are a Cup contender.

This is true. This season cane from nowhere. The expectations in October were low. Felger would tell anyone who would listen.

The laundry list of injuries is out. Considering the names and extent of injuries to those names it’s not surprising they went out the way they did.

This is my last pic of the Bruins 2017-18 season, as has already been said such a successful and unexpected season it was, looking forward to next season!!

Still the best tradition of any major sport, the post series handshake line

I've got to think if the Lightning play as well as they did vs. Boston they have a great shot at hoisting the cup this year.

My expectations at the beginning of the season was make the playoffs, win a round and bring in a group of the young talent.

They met all of them. It was unfortunate they didn't play better in the second round but with all the injuries and poor officiating, it happens. I expect them to be serious contenders next season for Lord Stanley's Cup!

Just now catching up on the local sports news and am somewhat surprised just how banged up this team was for the TB series, as far as officiating even the Lightning writers were commenting on how bad the officiating was during the series.

Even if Boston got by Tampa, with that list of injuries they weren't going much further. Sports leagues are a game of attrition and often the best teams don't win but the healthiest.
