Heard the Bruins lost. That sucks
The Islanders eliminate the Bruins in Game 6 and will face the Lightning in the Stanley Cup semifinals 🔥
Not worried. Go Bruins.
We're gonna talk about goalies and second-guessing Cassidy. But losing Brandon Carlo is what flipped this series. He had stifled Barzal through first two games and change. They lose Carlo, Barzal comes alive, PK is Swiss, and Bruins suddenly have one playoff-quality pairing.
The good news is that Bruins have never erased a 4-1 deficit in an elimination game before
The National Anthem before the Islanders-Bruins game will automatically give you the chills. https://t.co/dySauwpRDR
A post season with the Habs still alive and the Leafs and Bruins eliminated is as good as it gets folks.
The Bruins spent 1st round picks on Zboril and Vaakanainen. They were deemed worse options than Jared Tinordi, a desperation waiver claim.
That's a big indictment of a team that was willing to let Chara walk to go with Kevan Miller and the kids.
Reasons for the loss.
1. Defense. The Bruins banked on their prospects to carry the load on D and they failed to replace the Vets.
2. Bottom 6. Just a black hole of production from both units. Lazar was a nice patch but it wasn't enough.
3. Varlomov was better than Rask.
The #isles advance to the final four for the second straight year, defeating the Bruins in a six game battle.
They'll get Tampa again, who eliminated them in the bubble in six games.
Difference? Isles are another year battle tested. Result TBD.
If this is the last game for Tuukka Rask as a Bruin.. it’s so unrepresentative of what he did.
Most wins, and playoffs wins in Bruins history.
Had a .922sv% including a .926sv% in the playoffs.
A consistently elite goalie, consistently under appreciated.
Love you Tuukka ❤️
Islanders fans were chanting "New York Saints" in response to Bruins HC Bruce Cassidy

Ill tip my cap to Trotz and the Islanders. They took care of business and the Bruins will have to make changes.
It's been awhile I've seen a team out play out work & manhandle the Bruins awesome job Mr.Lamoriello of course we can't forget probably the best coach in today's game Barry Trotz this is what you call an old school PO team put the calculators away you can't calculate Heart 💙 https://t.co/uQ4hAejTM8
Talking Points in Boston Bruins 6-2 loss to the Isles in Game 6 that eliminates them from playoffs:
🚨🚨 2 goals for Brock Nelson
👎 A minus-3 & two horrendous turnovers for Matt Grzelcyk
🚨🚨 2 goals for Brad Marchand in defeat & 8 overall in playoffs
Thanks to the Bruins I will be choosing violence for the remainder of forever. Thank you for understanding.
Islanders defeat the Bruins 6-2 in Game 6 to advance to the 2021 Eastern Conference Finals against the Lightning. https://t.co/Wz0Mv0nRB1
It’s been almost 9 hours for me to process that Bruins game and I’d just like to say…I’M STILL IN PAIN 🥲
