    Bruins @ Lightning 3/8 GDT

    TAMPA, Fla. -- Good afternoon from the Tampa Bay Times Forum, where the Bruins are set to take on the Lightning this evening. It's a big game for Tampa Bay, which has struggled since returning from the break. The Lightning have lost their last three games and are 3-7-0 in their last 10.

    The Lightning did get back star Steven Stamkos for their game against Buffalo on Thursday. The newly named captain of the Lightning had been out for 45 games, since he broke his shin in a game against the Bruins on Nov. 11.

    It's an interesting matchup, given that these two could possibly face each other in the playoffs. In fact, if the playoffs started today, they would be a first-round matchup.

    Game time: 7 p.m.

    TV/Radio: NESN/98.5 The Sports Hub

    Records: Bruins 40-17-5, Lightning 34-24-5

    Projected lineups:

    Milan Lucic-David Krejci-Jarome Iginla
    Brad Marchand-Patrice Bergeron-Reilly Smith
    Chris Kelly-Carl Soderberg-Loui Eriksson
    Daniel Paille-Gregory Campbell-Shawn Thornton

    Zdeno Chara-Dougie Hamilton
    Matt Bartkowski-Johnny Boychuk
    Torey Krug-Kevan Miller

    Tuukka Rask
    Chad Johnson

    Notes: The Bruins will go with the same six defensemen as they used against the Capitals on Thursday. That means that new Bruins Andrej Meszaros and Corey Potter will get another game up in the press box. There is no set time for either player to see his first action with Boston. ... The Bruins had an optional skate this morning, with Chris Kelly, Gregory Campbell, Jordan Caron, and Shawn Thornton the only forwards to skate. Most of the defensemen skated, with the exception of Zdeno Chara and Johnny Boychuk. Tuukka Rask also took the morning off. ... The Bruins play back-to-back games in Florida, with a 5 p.m. start on Sunday against Roberto Luongo and the Panthers in Sunrise, Fla.

    Tuukka has a 3-0,033. gaa against the Bolts this year, if the B's have 4 lines rolling again it's another win.

    Don't know if it would have counted but Loui came real close. Picked up a few shots on goal -- hopefully enough to carry some momentum into the second.

    5 shots on net, most were on the powerplays. 1st unit PP just has no sync to it. Dougie, Soderberg, LouI and Bergeron are working well on the 2nd PP unit. What a save by Tuukka on Panik. Bruins D went through a stretch starting at about the 7min mark were they just started getting walked on in their own end. Bs forecheck non existent right now. Lucic needs to stop making blind passes back to the blueline.

    Once the Bs forwards get cleaner entries into the offense zone and get a forecheck going they will start having their way in this game.

    And what little I have seen of Marchand on man advantage I thought he fit in fine but Julian likes the Swiss (Ericsson and sodaberg) out there better.

    If Rask sprawls sideways that puck doesn't end up in the net.

    B's are simply getting outworked.  Still lots of time to turn it around.
