Lightning focused on Game 3, not concerned with history in Boston

Lightning focused on Game 3, not concerned with history in Boston”

"We're happy with the way we played the last game but we realized that it's going to be very hard here in Boston with the way they've played".

Legendary coach and Hall of Famer Scotty Bowman sat in his normal seat in the press box at Amalie Arena for Game 1 of the second-round series between the Bruins and Tampa Bay Lightning and he was in awe of Boston's top line. Boston did what they probably wanted to do and that's come here and get the split. "We just couldn't get over the top".

Returning to the earlier seating breakdown, we definitely realize that this policy affects such a tiny percentage of those who want to take in a playoff game while not pledging allegiance to the Lightning, but it is interesting to ponder whether the measure makes for good business and if it somehow fails to "embrace the passion of invading fans", as Edwards asserted. We can come back and we expect better from ourselves.

Tampa Bay's Andrei Vasilevskiy stopped 18 shots.

The trio of Patrice Bergeron, Brad Marchand, and David Pastrnak was typically dominant in a series-opening win, combining for 11 points, with Point finishing a team-low minus-five, and linemates Tyler Johnson (minus-3) and Ondrej Palat (minus-4) joining him on the ice for several of those goals. "They're a good transition team".

But as badly as they were outplayed at times, the Bruins did make Tampa sweat for its victory when Krug scored on a seeing-eye shot with 4:02 left. Boston did not deserve to win, but had a chance. That first goal for us was a good transition. You can't change it at this point. You try and figure out what the standard is and if it doesn't stay consistent, it's tough to play. You need to win the pucks and you have to find a way to get it to the danger areas and get bodies there. "But it is what is".

The Eastern Conference semifinal series is now tied at one, with Game 3 in Boston on Wednesday (7, NBCSN).

"To be honest we hoped to be (leading the series) 2-0, (but) it's 1-1", he said.

Kunitz said Boston fans are among the loudest in the National Hockey League, and the only way to quiet them is to take control of the game.

"It's 1-1. It's the playoffs. You're not going to walk through teams", said Marchand.
