For the second straight period, the Bruins jumped out to a lead only to see Tampa Bay tie it, and the two teams are knotted at two as they head for the final 20 minutes of regulation.
After costing the Bruins a night before with a turnover in his own end that led to a Panthers goal, Steven Kampfer scored his first career NHL  goal after the final seconds of a too-many-men penalty on the Lightning ticked away. In sending a puck to Kampfer from the corner to set up the tally, Marc Savard  picked up his 700th career point.
Tampa was able to tie it when Vincent Lecavalier picked up his fourth goal in the last three games at 14:02. With Tim Thomas  cutting down the angle perhaps a bit too much, Lecavalier went wide and around the net to jam home a wrap-around.
Through two periods, the Bruins are 1-for-5 on the power play, while the Lighting are 1-for-4. The Lightning are outshooting the B’s, 21-14.
