Bruns Defeat Lightning, Shooting Up The Atlantic Division Standings

Although sadly Detroit won, if Boston wins twice and Detroit and Montreal start losing, the Bruins can hop into 2nd place 3 points behind the Lightning.  If the win four and the Lightning does the same, they take over the Atlantic division.   Now for this action packed game.  It started 1-0 Tampa Bay as Steven Stamkos scored early.  Soon after, about 4 minutes left in the 1st period, Brad Marchand scored for the Bruins.  However, Stamkos had his second goal about 10 minutes after 1st intermission.  But it was followed by a Bruins comeback.  First David Pastrnak scored again, then he gave Milan Lucic a turn.  David Krecji passed it over to Lucic late in the 2nd period.  In the final period, David Pastrnak sored the Bruins’ 4th goal.  However, it was followed by a Ryan Callahan goal for the Lightning, and that was it.  4-3 Bruins.

Over the last few games, the Bruins have had a couple of good streaks.  The Bruins have won 4 games in a row, and haven’t lost since Jeremy Jacobs came out to complain about them.  They’ve impressed Jacobs with the wins apparently.  Also, David Pastrnak is red hot.  Although he is only 18 years old and is the youngest player in the NHL as experience helps, he’s scored 4 goals in the last two games!   The Bruins can make their win streak 5 games if they beat the New York Rangers on the road tomorrow.  So go Bruins, let’s go after that division.
