Lightning journal: Bruins hope to regain home-ice advantage

Adjust Comment Print

When the trio is on the ice, the Bruins have been outshot 16-4 and outscored 2-0 - the latter could be worse if not for goaltender Tuukka Rask.

Fine, I've got no beef with that. "If I threw it at somebody, I'd like to apologize, but I didn't". "We managed the puck really well tonight, we made them work for offence".

Alexander Ovechkin has scored plenty of goals during his illustrious career, but his victor late in Game 3 to give the Capitals a 2-1 series lead over the Penguins just might be his biggest.

Two important players, Brad Marchand and Jake DeBrusk, did not practice, given what was described as maintenance days, so there's nothing yet to read into the fact that Ryan Donato skated on the second line in DeBrusk's usual spot with David Krejci and Rick Nash and Danton Heinen took Marchand's spot on the left wing with Patrice Bergeron and David Pastrnak.

Some guys [among the forward group] have had a tough time [and] we need [to be better], whether they stay in or not.

After a lethargic 4-1 loss in Game 3 against the Lightning, it's pretty clear that the Bruins need a bit of a shakeup in their offensively-challenged lineup. Granted, an empty-net goal could easily be considered the "easy" way out, but at the end of the day, a goal is a goal.

Hertl helped give Jones a cushion with his goal early in the second.

"At the start of the game they actually had some better looks than we did". The Bruins have also been abysmal on the power play against Tampa, convering on just three of their 19 opportunities, and Donato could provide a spark on that front as well (two of his five goals came with the man advantage).

But the Lightning, again, took the air out of TD Garden when sensational rookie Tony Cirelli picked up his first goal of the playoffs.

Sharks score late to send Game 3 to overtime
The Vegas Golden Knights had a very easy win in game one of this series, but they were clearly in a dogfight in game two. That was my mindset from the first pitch of the inning, to get ready for a two-out, bases-loaded situation.

"We have a lot of experience". The puck squirted out to Tyler Johnson, who relayed it over to Ondrej Palat. But when Marchand was going in on breakaway after Krug's goal late in the game, Anton Stralman got away with a good whack on Marchand's hands. "It's the same thing".

After Patrice Bergeron made it a one-goal game, Anthony Cirelli scored his first career National Hockey League playoff goal to give the Lightning a 3-1 lead late in the first. It enabled them to then lay back and focus on preventing Boston's speedy and skilled forwards to grind and make plays.

The Tampa Bay Lightning have been just as resilient in the Stanley Cup playoffs as they've been all season.

Palat's early outburst marked the fastest two goals by the same player at the start of a playoff game since 1996.

For 15 minutes, the Sharks and Golden Knights looked as if they'd play each other tight and end up in a third straight overtime finish. Sergachev countered on the power play, trimming Tampa Bay's deficit to 3-2. "We're in a playoff series and we're playing like that. I think they came out hard and better than we did and then Marcus scored and Joonas' goal was big as well", Couture said. It was Rask that kept the Bruins in the game in the first period after a couple of mistakes put them in a 2-0 hole, and it was Rask that made 11 saves in the middle period to keep the Bruins within two goals if they could ever get their offense untracked.
