After taking Game 1 of the second-round series, the B's lose three straight to Tampa to find themselves down 3-1 and on life support heading into Game 5. It hasn't been all that close for Boston in their last two matchups either, as the Lightning cruised to a 7-1 win in Game 3 and nearly shut out the Bruins in Game 4 with a 3-1 victory.
