8 a.m. ET: Thankfully there’s no blizzard in the forecast for Boston on Saturday afternoon, which means this visit from the Tampa Bay Lightning to the Garden should go off without a hitch. The Bolts are back in Boston for a Saturday matinee with the Bruins, four weeks after a nasty blizzard forced a previously scheduled Saturday matinee to be postponed (that game is rescheduled for April 25). It’s the continuation of a busy week for the Bruins who returned home Thursday to get a overtime win over the Ottawa Senators. Now they’re set to take on Tampa Bay with an early start on Saturday before turning around and hosting Montreal on Sunday night. The Bruins and Lightning met just a little more than a week ago down in Tampa Bay where the B’s beat the Lightning 4-2, thanks in large part to a pair of goals in the first 3:50 of the game. The B’s will be looking for another quick start in this one as well, as matinee games have given them some fits in the past few years. Getting out to that fast start is important as ever, especially given the fact that they’re going up a high-powered Tampa Bay offense that can put teams in a big hole in the early going. We may be seeing Anton Khudobin making his fourth appearance of the season. He hasn’t played since Feb. 15, with Tuukka Rask making the last five starts. If it is Khudobin between the pipes, he’ll be looking to rebound from a rough start against Buffalo in which he gave up four goals in the team’s only loss on the recent five-game winning streak. Puck drop from the Garden is set for 1 p.m.
