In Response to Time To BELIEVE!!!
[QUOTE]B's need to turn the page on the Game 4 collapse, fans probably do as well. Plenty of threads out here ripping the usual suspects; Thomas, Kaberle, Julien, as well as a few new victems; Lucic, Krejci, Seguin and others. I would submit that it is safe to say the entire team, from the goalie to the coach is worthy of criticism, exclusive of Bergeron. Seems somewhat pointless to continue to pile on or try to assign "percent blame". I am disappointed in the loss, my guess is all of B's Nation is as well. What I am left with is, for whatever reason, the B's were unable to match the urgency that the Bolts displayed. Was is difficult to watch? Was it frustrating, almost maddening? Did it remind me of last year? Yes to all three. But, what I am also left with is this: - The B's are tied 2-2 in a seven game series, with 2 of the next 3 at home - This team has character, they displayed it when they came back from 2-0 against the Habs in the 1st round - This team is talented, led by Bergeron and Krejci up front, Chara on the back-end, and the best goalie in the league in net - This team is deep, with quality forwards on all four lines, solid d-men, and probably the best back-up goalie in the league - This team is healthy (relatively speaking). Outside of Savard, this is a full roster; unlike last year's collapse against the Flyers when this team was missing key players. Sorry for being an optimist, but the Bolts have not exactly made me fear them. I think the B's respond well in Game 5, as we see a much better all around game from them and one that is much closer to their capabilities.

i couldn't of said it better myself and its exactly how feel about the bruins going forward. just a ton guts on this team and honestly guys i really feel like if the bruins lose game 5 i don't think its the end all be all. the bruins could easily win 6 and 7. now of course i don't to temp that and im sure they don't either. what they need is the effort and the game plan of game 3 of Philly series and game 3 of this series. come with everything. start with a lead and clog up the neutral zone. the biggest advantage i think the bruins have going forward or weakness that needs to be exploded on Tampa bay is there defense. its overrated (outside of brewer) the other guys(mab,ohlund,clark,lundin,and hedman) can be worn down like the bruins did in the Montreal series and forced into mistakes. i think that should be the biggest difference along with home-ice.
