TAMPA — Good morning from St. Pete Times Forum, where the Bruins will take on Steven Stamkos and the Lightning tonight. This will be our first look at rookie coach Guy Boucher. At the start of the morning skate, every player bolted toward Boucher when he blew his whistle.
Tim Thomas should get tonight’s start. That would leave Tuukka Rask to take on Florida again on Wednesday after shutting out the Panthers in his last start.
Puck drop: 7:30 p.m.
Record: Bruins 11-5-2, Lightning 11-7-2
