The Lightning are mostly known for their prolific offense, and on Thursday they had a defensive lapse that allowed the Bruins an early two-goal lead. Patrice Bergeron was ignored by a few Lightning defenders who had their eyes on the puck and not the open man, and the Bruins assistant captain was able to slot home a one-timer. Of course, credit the Bruins’ forecheck for making the play happen in the first place. Check out the breakdown of the Bruins’ second goal on the Amica Coverage cam in the video above.

Where is Chris Kelly?

One of the biggest surprises of last year's Bruins season was a 20 goal, 39 point output from long-time Senators forward Chris Kelly, the best all-around season of his career. The performance is largely what earned him a 4-year, 12 million dollar contract with the team. But so far this year Kelly has been somewhat absent from the score sheet. Despite playing in all 14 games...

Nathan Horton Might Be Getting Ready to Breakout After Scoring Twice in Win Over Lightning

The Bruins love Nathan Horton, as he’s by all accounts, one of the best teammates any NHL player could ask for. When he plays like he did on Thursday night, however, he must be their favorite guy in the world. The big forward with the even bigger smile played his best game of the season, scoring two goals and leading the Bruins to a 4-2 win over the Tampa Bay Lightning to open...

Bruins’ Top-Six Forwards Start to Click, Which Is Just What Club Needs to Stabilize Offense

The Bruins haven’t had much of an offensive breakout at any point this season, and some of that stems from the inability to get their top-six forwards all clicking at once. The talent is undoubtedly there for Claude Julien‘s top two lines, but getting that talent to shine all at once hasn’t quite happened yet. In Thursday’s 4-2 win over the Tampa Bay Lightning, however, those...

Bruins Looking for Successful Florida Swing After Dropping Two Games Last Year (Video)

After seven Bruins missed practice on Tuesday with flu-like symptoms, the team was back at it on Wednesday. Practicing down in Tampa in advance of the team’s Thursday game against the Lightning, the B’s know they have a tough test in front of them after dropping both games on their Florida swing last year. Although the Panthers are struggling right now, the Lightning are boasting...

Bruins off-season questions (Poll)

While the Bruins season is off to about as good of a start as we could have hoped, it is worth taking a quick look ahead to this off-season when a number of key members of the current squad are set to become free agents. The big names on this list are Andrew Ference, Nathan Horton, Anthon Khudobin, Lane MacDermid, and Tuuka Rask. All are important pieces of the current team, and...

Taming Tampa, Bruins 4 Lightning 2

What a beautiful arena, too bad Tampa doesn't have fans  "Let's Go Bruins!" chants and huge cheers erupting when B's score here in Tampa tonight. Feels like a home game for the Black and Gold — Joe Haggerty (@HackswithHaggs) February 22, 2013  The Boston Bruins were able to escape the cold, and escape their suspect play as they made their first road trip...

Lightning can’t match the Bruins in 4-2 loss

The Lightning fell behind early and were unable to get ahead which resulted in a 4-2 loss to the Boston Bruins. Nathan Horton scored two goals for Boston Thursday night, first one coming just :45 seconds into the game. Down 2-1 in the second period, Lightning rookie Cory Conacher found the net with his shot to tie the game up at 2-2. But the tie would be short lived as Boston took...

Banging On a Trash Can. Drumming On The Lightning. BRUINS WIN!

    Tonight's game was sponsored by the number 2. Bruins move to 10-2-2. Bruins scored two goals, then Lightning scored two goals, then Bruins scored two goals. Nathan Horton scored two goals. Dougie Hamilton assisted on both of those two goals. Justin has a two inch penis. The second Tampa Bay goal was softer than Robb when he sees a naked woman. Jon is going...

14. Boston Bruins at Tampa Bay Lightning. Sun and Fun in Death's Waiting Room

I ******* hate these three day waiting periods between games. It's probably the closest thing to being water boarded that I will ever experience outside of a Bruins power play (although not lately!). The worst part about it is that there isn't **** to write about during this time off, except for that Lindy Ruff got fired 5 years to late which is kind of a ****** thing because...

This will be the first meeting of the two teams, after the first scheduled...
