Bruins may tinker with lineup for Game 4

They allowed a whopping 19 shots on goal in the first period, and after 40 minutes they had surrendered 30.

Now the series moves back to Boston for Wednesday's Game 3. Sergachev countered on the power play, trimming Tampa Bay's deficit to 3-2. "I guess in the end, they're putting the team first, putting the team before self".

Surely not a third successive game? Shortly after Boston went on the power play, while they did not score it gave them some confidence. The Bruins have struggled to get anything going in the offensive zone and need to improve fast. Those two traits certainly don't help a team in the middle of a playoff game, and neither does flat-out quitting.

And that isn't on Rask. "They don't give up on plays and it's been really effective for us".

Boston cut the lead to 2-1, but the Lightning gained the two-goal lead back just a couple of minutes later. It was all for naught, though, as the Bruins took inopportune penalties each time they built any momentum in the second and were lucky to get out of the period down two goals.

Pavelski's goal on the rebound of Couture's shot sealed the game midway through the third.

The first period saw the Tampa Bay Lightning at their best.

Don't bite on any rumors you might hear that Lightning general manager Steve Yzerman is going to the Maple Leafs to become their GM.


Before it started, my prediction was Boston would win in six games. "If they stay in, obviously, they need to be better". His other outings with something even as modest as a.910-plus SP have been games the Bruins either lost or won by a considerable margin.

The Lightning lit the lamp less than two minutes into action. And that lead is deserved. Rask kept this game from being four or five nothing in the opener.

"I am concerned", said Cassidy. Braden Holtby has held his own against Matt Murray in net, and Alex Ovechkin is playing as though he wants to prove he's as clutch a player as Sidney Crosby is. He takes hits to make plays. It may be a bit of a pivot point in the series. "I'm going to create loose pucks on the forecheck, and be opportunistic when the offense is there". However, in back-to-back wins, the Lightning's depth players have outplayed the Bruins', and it's been the difference so far in the series.

In San Jose, Martin Jones recorded his second shutout of the postseason and sixth of his playoff career by stopping 34 shots in the Sharks' 4-0 victory over the Golden Knights.

Game five of the series, which has seen the teams alternate victories, is in Las Vegas on Friday. Backes slammed Pacquette to the ice after the they dropped their gloves. When Marchand was called for a slash on Stralman in Game 3, the "little ball of hate" was sacked up - fired up enough to get a 10 minute misconduct for letting the referees have it.

There was none of that in a potential swing game in this series. After a rough afternoon of doing so in Game 1, it's been mission accomplished in Game 2 and now in Game 3.

This heavyweight battle of arguably the two best teams in the Western Conference has been fascinating to watch.

This series is likely to come down to which goalie can make the biggest saves in the biggest moments. "When he showed up, it was like we scored a game-winning goal". Each team's fate is in large part in both of their hands. Both are Vezina Trophy finalists for best goalie in the National Hockey League this year.
