Bruins Strike Lightning, Win Fourth Straight

It appears now that the Bruins are peaking at the right time. In early and mid-March, the Bruins were 3-5-1 over a nine-game stretch. Now, with just six games remaining before the playoffs begin, the Bruins have won four games in a row, including a 3-1 win over the Lightning Tuesday night.

Manny Fernandez earned the start between the pipes and finished with 24 saves to get the win. The Bruins are still first in the Eastern Conference with 108 points (49-17-10), nine points ahead of the second-place Capitals.

The Bruins struck first, with a goal at 14:03 of the first period from Blake Wheeler. They tacked on two more in the second, with Zdeno Chara scoring nearly seven minutes in, and assisting on a Chuck Kobasew goal nearly seven minutes later.

The win against Tampa Bay wasn’t too impressive, considering the Lightning are the second-worst team in the Eastern Conference with a 24-35-17 record (65 points). But, the B’s will take any win they can get as they build momentum to the playoffs.

The B’s next play Thursday against the Senators.
