Lightning's depth has flipped the script in taking series lead over Bruins

Martin Jones makes 34 saves as Sharks tie series with Golden Knights

Anthony Cirelli was never drafted into the Ontario Hockey League. The Lightning win was not without some controversy - as there were several questionable calls by the officials - but regardless, Tampa Bay got what it needed in a 4-2 victory. "He's very comfortable in his style of game".

You could tell from the look on his face he was relieved he could put this behind him and move on. They don't try to jam square pegs into round holes. "We're in a playoff series and we're playing like that".

In the first two games, the Bruins have done everything to get under the skin of the Lightning and some of the actions have left marks, including two stitches under the eye of Lightning defenseman Victor Hedman. "We didn't let (Game 3, a 4-1 loss) get away, but we didn't take advantage of what we did on the road, so we have to (win on Friday)". Promo Marketing has covered the confusion that can come about when a fan plays the role of an interloper, so that matter and this one have us wondering what you think about sports franchises' efforts to keep their performers top of mind.

"Right there said everything to me about that kid". "You're not going to walk through teams", said Marchand. The Lightning have utterly controlled play at five-a-side with a 58.7 shots for percentage, 57.1 Corsi for percentage, 57.3 scoring chances for percentage and dangerously close to 66 percent of the high-danger chances.

Boston skaters have been penalized 3.7 times per game in total this season, 3.6 per game over their last five outings total, and 3.4 per game over their last five home outings.

Last night's loss showed Boston's real vulnerability in this series: Tampa Bay's defensive corps is much better than theirs.

"I think in the last two games, at certain points, more than at any time during the year, we got outworked a little bit", said rookie center Sean Kuraly.




No wonder Boston coach Bruce Cassidy was left lamenting what he deemed to be a "slow" and "stubborn" performance. The Bruins are at their best when they possess and cycle the puck with speed in the offensive zone. Instead, the Lightning gamers flexed their will for a full 60 minutes. "So we'll have that conversation tomorrow", said Cassidy.

"Drop of the puck, we need to be ready - focused, in synch, engaged, urgent - to make sure we're not giving anything for free", said veteran winger David Backes. "They came out and played". It's hard to do - to amp yourself up, game after game after game. A tough game. But that's the good thing about the playoffs.

"These guys, they've just found a way".

Palat on returning from injury: "I'm just happy it's going in [the net], but I thought the whole team played well tonight".

It's a hallmark of what they stand for. Then there was the endless energy from Gourde, who only arrived in Boston around noon on Wednesday following the birth of his daughter Emma.

The game did have one glimpse of hope for the Bruins after Patrice Bergeron scored on a power play. The Kucherov-Stamkos pairing, on the other hand, has been completely silent, mustering just one point - an empty-netter from the captain to close out Wednesday's win. All in less than 12 minutes of work. "They've played on Olympic teams, World Cup teams, and every time you look up and Canada is winning, usually Marchand or Bergeron had something to do with it", Cooper added.
