8:30 a.m.: The Bruins will look to do something Monday afternoon that they have done only once this season — go on a winning streak. The B’s will host the Tampa Bay Lightning on Monday in Veterans Day matinee action, and Boston is looking for its third win in as many games. After losing four of five and hitting a low point in the young season, the Bruins have bounced back with a pair of wins in their last two games. They beat Florida 4-1 on Thursday and followed that up with a 3-1 win over Toronto on Saturday night in their first meeting since last year’s playoffs. Now the Bruins will look to make it a three-game winning streak against a surprising Tampa Bay team. The Lightning come in with a 12-4-0 record on the season, good for first place in the Atlantic Division. However, two of those four losses have come against the Bruins, who beat the Bolts on opening night and then hammered Tampa Bay 5-0 on Oct. 19 down in Florida. Like the Bruins, the Lightning have been playing as of late as they come in riding a four-game winning streak. Once again, Steven Stamkos is having another fine season for Tampa Bay. He comes in tied for the league lead in goals and points with 14-9-23 totals. Stamkos has a six-game goal streak going, so it goes without saying that slowing him down will be key for the B’s. Puck drop from the Garden is scheduled for 1 p.m.Filed under: Boston Bruins, Headlines, Live Blog, Mike Cole
