Write them off, but if Boston goes into the series with the same mentality you have about Tampa the Bruins would get blown out of the water.
I'm sure they wouldn't. I don't know how any team would after what happened last year. If they go into the series with that mentality, I would feel very confident in them winning.

With the parity in the league, sure, anything could happen, but when I was looking over all the playoff teams before they started I was thinking there isn't one team that I think the Bruins match up better against than the Lightning. That hasn't changed since the playoffs started.
