The sentiments — such as "Lightning fans, which Tampa player is your grandson?" — are meant in good fun, according to the Bruins. Nonetheless, we're giving you a chance to fight back: Leave a comment below with a message you would like to see greet Boston fans before Games 3 and 4 in Tampa. And who knows? Depending on the response, we might even pick a few of our favorites and publish them in tomorrow's paper. And it goes without saying, keep it clean, please.
