LIghtning-Bruins: Matchups that could define the Tampa Bay-Boston series

Stanley Cup Playoff Viewership Across Networks Of NBCUniversal Continues To Be Best In Four Years

Boston drove 17,310 ERs over the seven-game series with Toronto, which was 4.4% of total ERs in the first round. I feel like this is the ideal time to point out that the Bruins did not qualify for the postseason in 2016, meaning that Pastrnak has done this in just 14 playoff games to date (six a year ago, and eight thus far in the 2018 postseason). The Lightning scored twice, once on a Dan Girardi point shot that was deflected off a body in front and a second time on a power-play shot that got past Rask while he was trying to get a whistle because his skate blade popped off. Rask's save percentage wasn't flawless, but it was strong enough to make this an easier win than expecting, and his pass completion rate was fine considering he threw that blade without harming anyone.

The Bruins entered the third period with just a one-goal lead, 3-2, before pulling away.

Tuukka Rask made the second period of the Bruins-Lightning game even more eventful on Saturday when he chucked his broken skate blade across the ice. I was just trying to get his attention there, the ref beside the net. Eventually, Mikhail Sergachev took advantage of Rask's greatly impaired mobility to send a shot from the blue line past him to make it 3-2. He appeared to be in full meltdown mode.

"They have incredible talent there", Marchand said, "but they're a little deeper defensively". But his grit and determination to stay with the play, block a shot, and clear the puck out of the zone after three attempts resonated with his teammates.

Tuukka Rask made 20 stops.

"It means nothing", winger Brad Marchand said on Friday afternoon, after the Bruins' only pre-series practice. That's nice. It also might be the most National Hockey League thing ever. When Rask lost the blade on his skate, play was allowed to continue because losing a blade is not considered a safety issue.

Per NHL Rule 14 "Play shall not be stopped nor the game delayed by reasons of adjustments to clothing, equipment, skates or sticks".

The visit would start after Trump attended the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit slated for July 11-12 in Brussels. It is also thought that Trump could attend a rally outside London to raise money for the armed forces.

On occasion, Rask does lose his temper, and it's not always a bad thing. He's seemingly always on the ice - having played almost 27 minutes a night during Tampa Bay's 5-game victory over New Jersey in the opening round - and has an impressive wingspan with his stick, allowing him to knock away pucks and keep unwilling visitors from getting near his net. "As for the hit, I didn't see it at all; I didn't know it was coming".

"Yeah, that was an wonderful shift by him", Bergeron said of DeBrusk's painful shift. It was nice to see that emotion out of him and the way he stepped up in that game.

For the Toronto Maple Leafs, there is lots to learn from this series, and their experience going forward will be valuable.

Rask also commented on his burst of emotion saying, "I didn't throw it at anybody. I just wanted to make sure that everybody saw that my blade was off".

With Rask off the ice, it was an opportunity to get a glimpse at what the future might look like between the pipes for the Bruins. However, they could have easily held Tampa to one goal, if not for an equipment malfunction.

The Bruins got across-the-board contributions that complemented their first line's efforts.

Vegas conceded three goals in five postseason games, which is seven better than the next best defensive team left in the second round, as Winnipeg Jets let in 10 tallies over six games. "We've got to come back hard on the next one".
