Game Day: Lightning vs. Bruins — Battle for #2

Game 64: Boston Bruins vs. Tampa Bay Lightning
First off, BGG has Part 2 of  “The NHL’s Most Punchable Faces” post. Be sure to read Part I by us.

Bruins and Lightning are tied for second place in the East. Winner takes it tonight. Tampa’s 5-3-2 in last 10; Boston’s 7-3-0. Not bad.

Tampa’s goal differential is pretty horrid for a second-placed team. Maybe it’s because things like this happen:

Bruins also scored eight goals that game. That’s the type of shenanigans you get when Mike Smith is in net. It’s also when Savard made his comeback debut in Boston.

Marc Savard returned and the Bruins celebrated in grand style. They forgot they played hockey and scored a touchdown. Then gave Tampa Bay the finger and went for the two point conversion. They drove one Lightning goalie from the net and embarrassed the other. They held Stamkos pointless. They held St. Louis pointless.

Sadface. We miss Savvy.

Kalman’s going to be hosting a live chat event during the game. We’ll probably log in. We’re going to try to not ruin this happy even for him. We fear the Kal-Man Clutch.

After the jump… projected roster, game day links and game day video…

Nothing to do with the Lightning but still awesome. This is one of the few times we like Ovie.

Looks like Pie is in and Seguin is out. This makes no sense since Seggy played real well during that road trip. We’re assuming they want Seguin to watching Stamkos from up top. Who knows.
