Lightning 6, Bruins 1

Bruins crushed by the Lightning

TAMPA - In a season growing ever shorter, the playoffs on the horizon, the Bruins are getting ever worse. And it doesn’t get much worse than it got here Tuesday night for the defending Stanley Cup champs, who suffered a 6-1 shellacking at the hands of the Lightning.

Perhaps worse than the lopsided score, maybe even worse than losing three straight games, the Bruins found they still don’t have an answer for a leaky net. Marty Turco made his first start in a Boston uniform and lasted less than five minutes before Claude Julien summoned Tim Thomas to give some relief to the man who was supposed to provide the tired Conn Smythe winner some relief.
