Listen: Bruins, Tampa Bay And Boston discussed on Todd Schnitt
"Lightening radio. Beat the Bruins three to two. They won that playoff series last year. Five games. Four games to one. They won the last four. So it's five in a row for the lightning over the Bruins. But of the regular season the lightning have struggled in recent years, even at home prior to tonight's game. Lightning had been just one three and two in their last six home games against the Bruins. But tonight they gave up an early goal. They destroying push back in the first got the game tied. They cut up. Bumbled installed their way through the second got through a title one took control the game in the third. And I know the Bruins made a late push. I'm going to differ with by steamed partner there. He didn't like the shot attempts. I think it was a good third period for the lightning. I think the Bruins are down to they threw everything they could at at demeaning in the last five minutes that's going to happen ebbs and flows. We talk about that all the time. I think the lightning do not have a good second period. But I think for the most part their I in their third was was a lot better than not sure not better. Well, you mentioned they were really good Boston the second period. And they only made it score was one one at the end of two Tampa Bay. You can make a case they took their best shot withstood it, and you had made the comment regroup in the third period. I thought it was a better third period. Boston's having problems scoring sixteen goals over the last ten and now to tonight. Yeah. It's nine of the last ten they've scored two or less a problem in Tampa Bay once again. Showed their death. I mean, it's it's funny. They didn't score four plus tonight. And they still want good. They've been I thought made some really good saves late. Yeah. It's interesting that second period so much puck possession for the Bruins and the lightning. We're really struggling with park management. But I'm trying to think of like great as the Bruins had in the second grade as the breakaway Nebraska deflection. That's right. That was a really good that was a relief. The in Tampa Bay blocked a lot of shots to they were credited with six in the second felt like it was like ten. Yeah. You know? So from that standpoint, they competed really hard. They I think they knew the puck was bouncing off this thick exploding off their stick. But they did everything they could to try and prevent, you know, a goal with demanding that, and you know, they did a good job. And that's comparing look when you're coaching a team with the most points in the NHL at times, everything you touch turns to gold. Yeah. Tonight at the start of the third Cooper, switches Miller and Joseph and Joseph's first shift back with surly glory scores. The goal to give the lead Scott nine goals. And I mean, he barely gets what powerplays on and he didn't have until November. That's right. That's right. They have what is it fourteen goals between Lee and Joseph Flynn, let's up at the two rookies really playing predominantly on the same. Well, the Laney will regroup for Colorado. And we knew this was going to be a tough home. Homestand. I mean, you got Boston always a tough opponent, Colorado. Phil said he thinks they may come out of the west, and that's high praise. The Rangers are approved this year. And then you got the big match up with Toronto doubt. So I think some some really challenging opponents on this home at very good for the lightning to start it off with the w I'll be interested to see probably you as well. And everybody who does John Cooper matchup with that first line? Yeah. On saturdays. We've seen the pocket line. And it's interesting. The Miller got put on that at the end of this game because that was the line that matched for the most part against the McKinnon Lhasa game in Denver some size. Yeah. So we'll see how they've also got speed though. That's what making fly. Yeah. And great hockey sense as well. There are a handful. All right, Greg. I'll have the rest of our post game show coming up. Thanks to everyone involved in tonight's broadcast. Reggie Davis back at the lightning radio studios. Steve versus alongside us in the radio booth for Greg Llanelli Erica. And Phil Esposito. This is Dave Michigan saying so long from abeline a final score tonight. It was the lightning three in the Bruins to get outta everybody. Irish thirty-one."
