Four Point Swing goes to the B’s

By on January 31, 2017

Tampa, Fla. — It was an uneventful first period with the shot count Boston 4, Tampa 8.  It was somewhat at least refreshing the Lightning led the shot count.  The next forty minutes the Lightning go listless and only get 13 shots over the next forty minutes.

Alex Killorn scored the lone goal for the Lightning at 8:41 in the second. The assist were from defenseman Victor Hedman and Tyler Johnson.  Answering back Patrice Bergeron scored at 18:08, helpers were Adam McQuaid and Brad Marchand and the Bruins tie the game.

With the clock ticking down in the second, one of those back breaking, dream crushing late period goals.  With .01 left on the clock the Bruins take the lead, talk about a buzzer beater, scored by David Krejci assist from Brad Marchand and Adam Miller.

The crowd was alive and excited up until the buzzer beater deflating goal by the Bruins at the end of the second. Unfortunately an eerily familiar feeling for the Lightning fans this season.

Five minutes into the third period things were looking dismal for the Lightning as Boston racked up 27 shots on goal to Tampa’s 13. Number 17 Alex Killorn just like a mirror of the first Lightning goal, scores the tying goal. The helpers again were Hedman and Johnson.

Things were looking up for the boys in blue, but that excitement would be short lived. Boston Captain Zdeno Chara ripped one from the blue line. The Bruins went ahead 3-2. The trio of Killorn, Hedman and Johnson almost tied the game up at the other end. They had a break out 3 on 2 but were stoned by Tukka Rask.

The Bruins went on the man advantage at !2:09 compliments of a high sticking penalty from Cedric Paquette. Boston scored their fourth goal almost immediately. The air left the building as the Lightning fans began to file out.

The Lightning had a few more scoring chances, but were unable to pull out a win.

The Ottawa Senators come to town on Thursday, February 2nd.
