This season, the team is 31-14 SU at home. An effort that's hit-or-miss isn't going to cut it. Seven have come in the regular season, two in the Stanley Cup Playoffs. It enabled them to then lay back and focus on preventing Boston's speedy and skilled forwards to grind and make plays. The Lightning, however, was a total buzzkill to the Boston party thanks to two goals by Ondrej Palat in the first four minutes.

This is a series that Boston should be leading.

After a lethargic 4-1 loss in Game 3 against the Lightning, it's pretty clear that the Bruins need a bit of a shakeup in their offensively-challenged lineup.

If someone starts a sentence like "I just think it's amusing how", you know you've got a big storm comin'.

"No. Not good enough", Cassidy said of his team's puck movement out of the defensive zone. They are now 13-9 all-time in Game 3's and 7-5 in Game 3's on the road. But that also comes with the aforementioned puck possession, Cassidy pointed out. The Bruins finally sustained some pressure late in the period when Rask went to the bench for an extra attacker, but Torey Krug took a tripping minor that all but finished Boston's chances. Nevertheless, it's surprising that the team's top combination of J.T. Miller, Steven Stamkos and Nikita Kucherov has failed to register a point over the course of two games.

All told, the Black and Gold blue liners were an aggregate minus-6.

The Bruins were already down by two goals after Anthony Cirelli picked up his first-ever National Hockey League postseason goal late in the second period.

"I honestly didn't. We know they can do it".

Killorn is one-third of a line along with Tony Cirelli and Yanni Gourde that has been as good as any for Tampa Bay in damaging the Bruins with the forecheck. "They've done it for a long time".

"I thought that was probably our most complete game of the series", Jones said.

No wonder Boston coach Bruce Cassidy was left lamenting what he deemed to be a "slow" and "stubborn" performance. That comes with the territory when you play the sport's most important, and scrutinized, position. However, in back-to-back wins, the Lightning's depth players have outplayed the Bruins', and it's been the difference so far in the series.

The second period saw no goals scored, but plenty of controversy. "The 2-0 goal was a massive goal heading into the first intermission". The most exhilarating action of the period came when David Backes hit Dan Girardi from behind and Lightning forward Cedric Paquette attempted to stand up for his defenseman. Or lack thereof, for accuracy's sake.

"You don't ever go into any games saying 'Oh, we have the luxury of being able to lose this one'". "I don't think it was anything intentional on our part, obviously, but I think we just want to raise our compete, and win battles". And we will, we will. "We talked about it, but it's easier said than done".

"We're still a confident group in here, as always".

"We have a lot of experience". When Marchand was called for a slash on Stralman in Game 3, the "little ball of hate" was sacked up - fired up enough to get a 10 minute misconduct for letting the referees have it.

With a.920 save percentage and 29.2 saves per game, Andrei Vasilevskiy (49-23-3) has been the best option in goal for Tampa Bay this year.
