Tampa Bay looks destined for a date with Boston.

The Bruins went three up on Philadelphia – which, recent history suggests, is not an insurmountable lead. But it might be with Tim Thomas.

Playoff factoid: Tampa Bay has not lost with Marc-André Bergeron in the lineup. MAB was a healthy scratch for the first four games of the Pittsburgh series, and TB has reeled off seven wins since.

Bargain of the Playoffs: Sean Bergenheim, who’s on a one-year contract paying $700,000 and has scored seven postseason goals.

Right behind Sergei Kostitsyn and Ryan McDonagh on the mulligan list: Dominic Moore.
