Game 2: Lightning at Bruins

Good morning from TD Garden, where the Bruins will look to even the series tonight against the Lightning. Tampa Bay claimed Game 1, 5-2.

A source close to Patrice Bergeron told the Globe’s Kevin Dupont that the center will not play tonight. Bergeron has skated the last three days. He participated in practice yesterday. Bergeron is expected to skate this morning. However, Bergeron has yet to take hard contact, which indicates he has not been cleared for game action. Bergeron could return later in the series.

Puck drop: 8 p.m.

Record: Lightning 1-0, Bruins 0-1

Storylines: Rich Peverley will most likely switch places with Chris Kelly. Peverley will be looking to bounce back from a less-than-stellar Game 1… The Lightning racked up one goal on 11 power-play shots in Game 1. Tampa has scored on 26 percent of its postseason power plays. Conversely, the Bruins are clicking at a robust 4.9 percent… Eric Furlatt and Kelly Sutherland will be the referees. Jean Morin and Brad Kovachik will be the linesmen.
