Boston Bruins vs. Tampa Bay Lightning, 4-30

"They've been real greasy, as advertised".

Bergeron also scored twice and had an assist on one of Nash's goals for the Bruins, who finished one point behind Tampa Bay for the Atlantic Division title, as well as the No. 1 seed in the East. And then everything changed, as the Leafs came back to tie the series.

During the second period, Bruins goaltender Tuukka Rask lost his skate blade.

For now, everyone can calm down.

One second-round series in the 2018 NHL Stanley Cup playoffs begins Saturday, while a team down one game hopes it can restart its best-of-seven series.

"They've had some time to rest, and if they had any injuries, probably get a little healthier", Bruins coach Bruce Cassidy said.

To put things in perspective, consider the resumes of the Maple Leafs' Patrick Marleau and Jake DeBrusk, the Bruins' hero onWednesday night. They boast a Norris Trophy finalist in defenseman Anton Hedman, a Vezina Trophy finalist in Andrei Vasilevskiy, a potential Hart Trophy (Most Valuable Player) candidate in 100-point scorer Nikita Kucherov (he added 10 points in the first round), a No. 2/match-up center in Brayden Point who scored 32 goals, and sniper Steven Stamkos. Marleau is 38; DeBrusk is 21. 1 states that "play shall not be stopped, nor the game delayed, by reasons of adjustments to clothing, equipment, skates or sticks".

To pick another Bruin, Charlie McAvoy, he wasn't even born when Marleau played his first game. Murph will put those contacts, his experience, and knowledge to use to get you as close as you can to the hottest topics in the world of hockey!During the course of his career covering the game, Murph has not only built a jam-packed hockey Rolodex, he's also found himself living a life on the road reminiscent of Ernest Hemingway, Hunter S. Thompson, or Jack Kerouac. These aren't even your big brother's Bruins.

Not exactly a full vote of confidence by Sweeney, but just as maybe the local media and fans should do for now, Sweeney is backing Rask as his team tries to get to the Eastern Conference Final for the first time since 2013 when Rask helped the Bruins sweep Sidney Crosby and the mighty Penguins.

Except that we're now talking the near-future, not some far away future.

The Bruins outscored the Lightning 10-8 in winning three of their four regular-season games. The puck was out on the perimeter and Rask repeatedly screamed to get the officials' attention while he frantically peg-legged his way around the crease. That was raw talent. "Those weren't freebies. real greasy".

Tuukka Rask made 20 stops.

Everyone's going out of their minds about Rask. Then 45 seconds later the Leafs score and get momentum back along with the crowd.

Yikes, it's getting hot in here, eh?

The Bruins looked a bit uncomfortable in their own end to start the first, but Rask stood tall making 11 saves in the frame.

Not only did Vegas' offense explode for seven goals on Thursday to match its total from four games in the first round, its defense is the best remaining in the postseason. Obviously you could argue that the Lightning might have the cliched complacency of having too much time off. I think we're evenly matched, to good teams that compete hard and play the right way. If the Bruins can keep playing at this level they will coast into the Eastern Conference.
