Bruins Beat Lightning to Take Lead in Eastern Conference

Bruins Beat Lightning to Take Lead in Eastern Conference

Last night, the Boston Bruins and Tampa Bay Lightning played for first place in the Eastern Conference.

Yes, there is still over a week left of games, however with the Bruins 4-2 win, Tampa Bay is no longer first in the Eastern Conference for the first time since October 18th.

The first period was a fairly close period, except for the last 57 seconds.

In the last minute of the first period, the Bruins were able to score 2 goals to take a 2-0 lead going into the second period.

J.T. Miller was able to make it a 2-1 game in the second period, however Bergeron was able was able to record a goal just over half way through the third to make it 3-1 Boston.

Tampa Bay Defenseman Victor Hedman made it interesting when he scored with just over 6 minutes remaining in the game.

Brad Marchand was able to seal the win for the Bruins when he scored an empty net goal with less than a minute left in the game.

This is not the last time Boston and Tampa Bay will face off before a possible playoff series; Boston will travel to play Tampa Bay Tuesday April 3rd at 7:30 PM ET.

However, Tampa Bay has the possibility to take back first place in the Eastern Conference tonight as the Bruins only have a one point lead and have a night off, along with the Lightning playing the New York Rangers in what should be a win for Tampa Bay.
