Ron and Don: Boston's rookie phenom Jake DeBrusk a true Bruin

Marleau opened the scoring on the power play at 2:05 of the first when he tipped Gardiner's point shot past Rask, but DeBrusk tied it on a Boston man advantage just 2:42 later when he redirected Pasternak's effort from the high slot. In eight playoff games, Pastrnak leads the Bruins with five goals and 12 assists.

"It's a new series and you try to come out on top in the first game, try to get a lead, and that's what my focus was", said Rask.

"Hopefully, whatever the difference is, we have it, and they don't". Oh, and a member of the Bergeron line directly factored in on all six of Boston's goals in a Game 1 blowout win over the Lightning.

The Case for Taylor Hall: The Devils forward finished seventh in goals (39) and sixth in points (93) while helping lead the team to a 27-point improvement and back to the Stanley Cup Playoffs for the first time in six years. I asked that same National Hockey League management source if maybe th Flyers would ever be willing to take on Rask's salary (three years left at $7 million per) if the Bruins did try to deal him?

"It's another character win for us". "We need to keep [things] a little bit simple at the beginning, you know, putting pucks deep". Rask is averaging 25.5 saves per game and owns a 38-23-5 record.

The matchup initially is about rust vs. rest - the Lightning got a full week off after eliminating the New Jersey Devils in five games, allowing them time off while the Bruins needed a full seven games to advance past the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Now it is not only that one mistake by Brad Marchand that cost them the game.

It took a few days for the identity of the Tampa Bay Lightning's next opponent in the Stanley Cup Playoffs to be revealed.

A skate save by Rask caused the blade of his skate to fall off.

Last night was the flawless example in the first two periods he was good but that Mitch Marner goal was one where you want him to make that save.

Rask retrieved the blade, brandishing it angrily in the direction of the referees, before throwing it across the ice when it became clear that the goal would stand. Having shots alone didn't mean a thing in this game, however, as they were outscored 3-0 by the Bergeron line at five-on-five. "It definitely gave us a lot of confidence". An irate Rask tossed the blade towards the boards, but the goal counted. If I threw it at somebody, I'd like to apologize, but I didn't.

The remaining teams in 2018 make up the strongest class of quarterfinalists in the past decade, beating out the 2013 octet that featured the Chicago Blackhawks, Bruins, Los Angeles Kings and other heavyweights. It was exactly what Bruins fans have come to expect from these guys.

"In the end, our team had to pick up our play", Cooper said. That's what my focus was. He wants to win and his passion for the game is extraordinary.

Game 2 is Monday night in Tampa.

The final difference maker in the game was DeBrusk. Look for the Lightning to even the series at a game apiece. Stamkos has 28 goals and 64 assists to his name and has notched at least one point in 56 games. This is the way the Bruins play. The Lightning do not possess such a game on a regular basis - or are defined by it like the Maple Leaf defense corps has been; Tampa Bay finished the regular season with the sixth-fewest blocked shots in the league, and they now sit as the team with the second-fewest blocked shots in postseason action. Many people are anticipating this going to seven games as the teams bat back and forth with scoring.
