Palat pots two as Lightning take series lead over Bruins

Palat pots two as Lightning take series lead over Bruins”

"Well, I mean, he's just Mr".

"We're in the playoffs, you're not going to walk through teams", said Boston left wing Brad Marchand, who had a pair of assists in Game 2.

The Rask haters will try and tell you something different, but don't let them fool you.

For 15 minutes, the Sharks and Golden Knights looked as if they'd play each other tight and end up in a third straight overtime finish.

Bruce Cassidy didn't sugarcoat things after Boston's spiritless 4-1 loss to Tampa Bay in Game 3 Wednesday night. The negatives, unfortunately, might point to exactly why the Bruins find themselves in need of three wins in their next four games if they want to punch their ticket to their first conference final since the 2012-13 campaign. The trio has been very good at times through the course of the season. Yanni Gourde retrieved the puck in the right corner and fed to Anthony Cirelli, who had three attempts from the right circle before he scored. "I think we played well enough to win all of the first three, but tonight? No".

The league also said Aston-Reese made no sudden movement at the last second that made contact unavoidable, and pointed out several ways Wilson could have finished the play legally.

The second line of Jake DeBrusk, David Krejci and Rick Nash has had chances, and they converted in the Game 1 win with two goals from Nash and an empty-netter from DeBrusk.

An even greater effort will be required in Game 4 if the Lightning wish to take both games in Boston and return to Tampa for Sunday's Game 5 with a chance to close out the series.

"I didn't throw it at anybody", the Boston goaltender said Saturday.

Nash had six shots on goal and the line had 10 Wednesday night, which normally would be an encouraging sign, especially since most of those chances came against Tampa Bay's top two lines. The Bruins have struggled to get anything going in the offensive zone and need to improve fast. Instead, the Lightning gamers flexed their will for a full 60 minutes. This is to say that by stealing a game, we're not necessarily pointing to Rask out-duelling Vasilevskiy, because it could easily be argued the Boston keeper has done that in every contest of the series. "We're skating, we're physically engaged". Ryan Ellis said that the Preds "just stopped playing". It's hard to do - to amp yourself up, game after game after game. "In playoffs, anything for free is a hole you've dug yourself, and it's tough to dig out of".

Warriors star Curry set to play game two against Pelicans
While some of that can be chalked up to bad bounces or San Antonio's defense, the fact of the matter is the shots didn't go down. New Orleans swept Portland in the first round, so the Pelicans got to watch the Warriors finish off the Spurs on Tuesday night.

"These guys, they've just found a way". The Boston roar will be loud tonight and should give the players that extra juice to go on and punish this Tampa team.

It's a hallmark of what they stand for. 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. He slept in the hospital and flew up separately, arriving at around noon.

Cooper said that Gourde was waiting in the meal room when the players returned from the morning skate and the scene looked like a game-winning goal had been scored with the way his teammates reacted. Stamkos has 28 goals and 64 assists to his credit (and has notched a point in 57 games). All in less than 12 minutes of work.

"We can't exhale", Cooper said on Thursday, a day after the Lightning beat Boston 4-1 to open a 2-1 lead in the Eastern Conference semifinals.
