May 25, 2011, 4:11 PM EDT
Tonight’s Game 6 between Boston and Tampa Bay has the possibility of seeing the Bruins lock up their first appearance in the Stanley Cup finals since 1990 or it sees the Lightning force a Game 7. Keith Jones and Mike Milbury take a look at what happens tonight.

Last night’s Game 5 in Boston gave us quite the smorgasbord of stuff to think about including Tim Thomas’ toughness, Guy Boucher’s curious goaltending choices, Tomas Kaberle’s play, and the life of Steve Downie.
May 24, 2011, 2:26 PM EDT
Intentionally or not, Tim Thomas gave the Lightning bulletin board material going into Game 5. Then he muted their comments with an outstanding 33-save performance, highlighting an already-impressive playoff run.
May 23, 2011, 11:57 PM EDT
The Lightning dominated long stretches of Game 5, but Tim Thomas made 33 saves to help the Bruins steal a 3-1 win. Read all about how Boston earned their 3-2 series lead in this post.

After the Bruins tough loss in Game 4, Tim Thomas may have accidentally given the Lightning the bulletin board material this series has been lacking.

Once again a 3-0 lead wasn’t good enough for the Bruins as Tampa Bay rallied back to take out Boston 5-3 to even up the Eastern Conference finals at 2-2.
May 21, 2011, 3:42 PM EDT
After a brutal first period, the Lightning stormed back to tie things up in the second period thanks to Teddy Purcell’s two goals and solid goaltending from Mike Smith.
May 21, 2011, 3:24 PM EDT
A lot of people counted Tim Thomas out this season after an off-year in 2009-10. Anyone who followed his career knows that Thomas won’t just give up, though.
May 21, 2011, 2:40 PM EDT
A dominating first period from Patrice Bergeron and the Bruins has them ahead of Tampa Bay 3-0 after one.

From thoughts on Tim Thomas, to Victor Hedman, to the Thrashers’ likely move to Winnipeg we’ve got a lot to figure out here.
May 19, 2011, 11:30 PM EDT
David Krejci scored about a minute into the game and that’s all the Bruins would need as Tim Thomas earned a 31-save shutout. Boston cruised to a 2-0 win and 2-1 series lead in Game 3.
May 19, 2011, 7:07 PM EDT
Tonight’s Game 3 in Tampa Bay sees the Lighting and Boston Bruins both looking to grab control of this surprisingly high scoring series.
May 18, 2011, 9:00 AM EDT
Tyler Seguin’s breakout in the playoffs is a more than welcome sight for Bruins fans’ eyes. It also puts the spotlight squarely on Bruins coach Claude Julien who had him sit out the first two rounds as a healthy scratch.
May 18, 2011, 1:17 AM EDT
The Bruins and Lightning can take away some good things from their first two games, but both teams have a lot to work on going into Game 3.
May 17, 2011, 11:49 PM EDT
Tyler Seguin took over in the second and the Bruins held on in the third to win 6-5 to earn a 1-1 series tie with the Lightning in Game 2.
May 17, 2011, 6:00 PM EDT
Tonight’s Game 2 between Boston and Tampa Bay sees the Bruins trying to make things better for themselves by being rougher on the Lightning.
May 15, 2011, 12:18 AM EDT
Tampa Bay used an early three goal blitz in the first period to put Boston in their place and take Game 1.
