1:57 3d period, Bruins 3-2: Textbook PK by Bruins. All started with Patrice Bergeron winning first draw. Aggressive down the ice.

20:00 2d period, Bruins 3-2: Bruins will have 1:36 remaining on Zdeno Chara’s roughing penalty. Mean old Chara, cuffing cute little Cory Conacher.

13:58 2d period, Bruins 3-2: Brad Marchand whips a shot past Anders Lindback. Earlier in the shift, Tuukka Rask with the big stop on Martin St. Louis’s partial breakaway. Two-goal swing.

9:00 2d period, 2-2: Lightning enter offensive zone with speed. Cory Conacher with good look on goal. Nice snap shot by the rookie, but Tuukka Rask can stop those.

1:00 2d period, Bruins 2-1: Benoit Pouliot gives Patrice Bergeron a jolt up high. Bergeron slow to get to bench.

20:00 1st period, Bruins 2-1: Ice atrocious in Tampa. Play is unpredictable because of weird bounces. Imagine the numbers Steven Stamkos would put up if he had a better sheet.

18:50 1st period, Bruins 2-1: Quick blocker stop by Tuukka Rask on Alex Killorn. Nothing doing, Harvard boy.

12:20 1st period, Bruins 2-1: Inch away from a tie game. Marc-Andre Bergeron ticks a shot off the right post.

10:32 1st period, Bruins 2-1: So far, Zdeno Chara and Johnny Boychuk matched against Vincent Lecavalier’s line. Dennis Seidenberg and Dougie Hamilton against Steven Stamkos.

8:13 1st period, Bruins 2-1: Steven Stamkos gets Tampa on the board. Nice dish by Teddy Purcell in front. Tuukka Rask had to fight through Cory Conacher’s screen.

3:50 1st period, Bruins 2-0: Brad Marchand forces Victor Hedman turnover behind net. Patrice Bergeron with the goal from out front. Another softie given up by Anders Lindback.

1:11 1st period, Bruins 1-0: Dougie Hamilton with slapper on goal. Plump rebound off Anders Lindback’s right pad. Easy slam dunk for Nathan Horton.

0:00 1st period, 0-0: Aaron Johnson, Lane MacDermid, and Jay Pandolfo are the healthy scratches.
