There's certainly no love lost between the Bruins and Canadiens, and the B's and Flyers have a history as well. But there doesn't seem to be a huge rivalry between the Bruins and the Tampa Bay Lightning. NESN's Andy Brickley thinks that needs to change.

Brickley wants to see the Bruins generate some hatred for the Lightning, just as they had to do after an 11-day layoff before facing the Carolina Hurricanes in the second round of the 2009 playoffs.

Brickley also said that he liked the physicality that Milan Lucic and Nathan Horton showed at the end of Game 1, as well as the way the Lightning's Victor Hedman responded

To hear what else Brickley, as well as Barry Pederson, had to say prior to Game 2 of the Eastern Conference Final on Bruins Face-Off Live, check out the video above.
