Final: Bruins 3, Lightning 2

All done in Boston. Two power-play goals for Bruins, first two at home this season. Montreal up next.

17:44 3d period, Bruins 3-2: Bruins score on two-on-one. Patrice Bergeron to Brad Marchand. The left wing snipes his 11th goal.

14:21 3d period, 2-2: Brendan Mikkelson off for high-sticking Milan Lucic. Four minutes.

10:46 3d period, 2-2: Holding the stick on Dougie Hamilton. Critical kill coming up.

20:00 2d period, 2-2: Bruins end second with four-minute kill of Andrew Ference high-sticking double minor. Ference had a good scoring chance after serving the penalty, but goes wide right.

10:13 2d period, 2-2: Best sequence for Anton Khudobin. Glove stop on Martin St. Louis. Then gets down into butterfly to stop followup bid.


4:44 2d period, 2-2: Gregory Campbell vs. B.J. Crombeen. Campbell hangs in against the bigger Crombeen.

4:39 2d period, 2-2: Rich Peverley goes up high on Mathieu Garon. Crisp cross-ice pass by Adam McQuaid to spot Peverley at the left circle. Peverley buries the shot.

4:09 2d period, Lightning 2-1: Tampa down a forward. Ex-Bruin Benoit Pouliot out for the game because of upper-body injury.

3:22 2d period, Lightning 2-1: Tyler Seguin scores on the power play. From the left circle, Seguin finds a hole glove side on Mathieu Garon upstairs. Good resilience by Seguin after having several shots blocked.

2:04 2d period, Lightning 2-0: Eric Brewer off for interference. Definition of makeup call.

20:00 1st period, Lightning 2-0: Uncharacteristic defense by Bruins in first period. Tightened up in second half of period. Looks like referees are keeping close eyes and ears on Milan Lucic.

19:51 1st period, Lightning 2-0: Milan Lucic off for boarding Victor Hedman. Looks like Lucic has an argument. Has to zip it, though.

10:45 1st period, Lightning 2-0: Dennis Seidenberg off for boarding Benoit Pouliot. Nasty looking hit, but Pouliot OK.

9:33 1st period, Lightning 2-0: Puck gets behind Mathieu Garon, nearly crossed line. Eric Brewer keeps puck off the line.

8:57 1st period, Lightning 2-0: Adam McQuaid vs. Pierre-Cedric Labrie. McQuaid shoves Keith Aulie, Labrie jumps in. Even fight, ends with both tiring out. First fight for Bruins in last eight games.


8:38 1st period, Lightning 2-0: Alex Killorn fights off Johnny Boychuk stick check and backhands puck past Anton Khudobin. Second PPG in two opportunities.

5:32 1st period, Lightning 1-0: Steven Stamkos with the bad-angle PPG. Not many guys in league who can score from that angle. Stamkos had his left skate on the goal line.

2:21 1st period, 0-0: Chris Bourque with Gregory Campbell and Jay Pandolfo.

0:22 1st period, 0-0: Daniel Paille lines up with Chris Kelly and Rich Peverley to start. We’ll see if that line sticks.

0:00 1st period, 0-0: Shawn Thornton out. Jay Pandolfo in. Thornton is healthy scratch.
