Ride The Lightning?

The Tampa Bay Lightning head into this showdown in Boston tonight just 24 hours removed from a crazy 6-5 overtime victory against the Buffalo Sabres.

Forward Steven Stamkos scored two big goals, including the game-winner halfway through the overtime session, while also adding an assist. Nikita Kucherov chipped in with three assists while Brayden Point scored a pair of power-play tallies. Backup goaltender Brian Elliott made 32 saves on 37 shots faced to record his fifth victory in six starts on the season.

With this being a back-to-back situation, many anticipate that Andrei Vasileviskiy will get the nod between the pipes for tonight’s game.

Booming Bruins Continue to Roll

The Boston Bruins continue to skate along playing arguably the best hockey in the National Hockey League right now, winning 18 of their first 21 contests and setting several franchise records along the way.

The Bruins have had three days off since their last game, a 3-2 win in overtime against the Carolina Hurricanes on Friday afternoon.

Veteran forward David Krecji scored a pair of goals to help Boston cut a 2-0 deficit, giving David Pastrnak the chance to net the game-winner in overtime for his club-leading 14th goal of the season. Goalie Jeremy Swayman got the victory in relief of Linus Ullmark, who got hurt early into the third period.

Swayman made just six saves on all shots faced, while Ullmark, who is healthy enough to avoid being placed on injured reserve, made 28 saves on 30 shots faced in that contest. It is unclear at press time, which goaltender will get the start, but many are anticipating that the 24-year old Alaskan native will get his eighth start of the year.
