There's no doubt it's frustrating to see them repeat the same mistakes. We don't know what--if anything--CJ said between periods 1 and 2, but I would HOPE it was along the lines of "guys--we've been here b4....there's 40 mins. of hockey left and if we don't keep the pressure on them, it's gonna spell trouble."
Based on what we saw in periods 2 and 3 he either didnt say that or they didnt get the message.
STILL.....this is a 2-2 series. If momentum from one game to the next was everything logic dictates the B's should have won game 4 going away. But Game 5 is a fresh sheet of ice. If the Bruins play the way they did yest. the series is likely over (tho' you never know), but if they shake it off, come back w/a vengeance, then they're going back up 3-2 to Tampa knowing they're one of the best road teams --usually--in the NHL, and can wrap upthe series.
Bottom line as I see it: whoever wins game 5 takes the series,...and if the B's do, the collapse of game 4 will be quickly forgotten.
