Milan Lucic was no doubt a huge presence in last night’s Bruins win over the Lightning, but the Bruins’ penalty kill when faced with two minutes of 5-on-3 in the second period was critical.
Patrice Bergeron, Zdeno Chara, Johnny Boychuk and Tim Thomas shut down a Lightning power play unit that included Steven Stamkos and Martin St. Louis on the ice for the entire two minutes. It helped pave the way for the Bruins’ seventh straight victory. The Penguins come to Boston Saturday for another interesting showdown.
The three stars chosen at the rink last night were: 1. Lucic; 2. Boychuk; 3. Thomas. Vote for three.
