The Better Team Won In The Lightning/Bruins Series

from Tom Jones of the Tampa Bay Times,

Don't be fooled by close scores and by the polite words coming out of the Lightning locker room. And, true, there was a Lightning overtime victory thrown in there. But make no mistake: the team that deserved to win this series won this series.

Tampa Bay was way better than the Bruins in every way except licking people and whining about the officiating.

Solid goaltending. Timely goals. Big hits. Smothering defense. You name it. Tampa Bay bettered the Bruins in each category. The Lightning also had the best player in Brayden Point. The better coach in Jon Cooper. The better, well, everything.

This was a Boston beat down. Which is funny because Boston gets credit for just how good the Lightning has become.
