Tampa Bay loses consecutive games for the first time since the opening Pittsburgh series.
Boston looks great, and the Lightning are in trouble.
And at least the Canadiens weren’t shut out at the Bell Centre.
Patrice Bergeron was back and went 18-10 on faceoffs.
Boston was outshot 31-25 but that’s misleading.
The Bruins won puck battles at both ends of the ice, and the Lightning were unable to exert anything resembling sustained pressure.
Zdeno Chara played 28:27 and was one for almost every Vincent Lecavalier shift.
Look, Canadiens fans hate to admit it, but Boston is looking REALLY good.
They dominated every important aspect of the game, with the exception of coach tantrums.
