Bruins fire up the Bolts by a 3-1 final score

14:39: Matt Lashoff just got welcomed back to Boston with a huge body check from Patrice Bergeron [1] in the Tampa offensive zone. Bergeron has two hits through the first two periods and has played one of his most physically-engaged games of the season. The rap on Lashoff in Boston was that he was never physical enough to compete, and there’s another piece of evidence in the building case.

8:34: Time out for the Lightning in a 3-0 game with 8:34 to go in the third. Rick Tocchet must be drawing up the famous three-goal play on the dry erase board. Obligatory boos followed the TO call, of course.

7:53: The timeout must have worked as rookie Steve Stamkos finally cashed one in for the Lightning on a second-effort whack at a puck in front of the net. Ryan Malone [2] put heavy pressure on the net with a pair of bids up close before Stamkos filled lit the lamp. The score was the 20th of the season for Stamkos. Lashoff also picked up a helper on the score.

5:41: Bruins power play wiped out by a high-stick call to Chuck Kobasew [3]. The missed PP chance leaves the B’s 2-for-5 on the man advantage this evening.

3:55: Near miss as Vinny Lecavalier hits the left post on a bid from the high slot that immediately rocketed back out. Big bounce for the Bruins that could have made it a one goal game, but instead My Center Vinny goes away frustrated.

3:00: Ryan Malone in the box for tripping. PP for Boston, and a nice save by McKenna on a Matt Hunwick bid from the right point.

1:53: Great cross-ice set-up from Krejci to Chara at the right faceoff circle, but McKenna again makes the pad save.

The Bruins take their fourth in a row with a 3-1 victory over the Lightning at the Garden.
