Bergeron and Nash help Bruins take early playoff series lead on Lightning

On the power play, Rask's left skate blade popped off when it was hit by a shot. I wasn't sure if he should have thrown that skate blade.

The Bruins played a textbook road game to open the series against the well rested Lightning who were a step behind all day long in their 6-2 drubbing by Boston, and now the B's can head home with a 2-0 series lead if they can follow suit with another strong effort on Monday. Boston's big line of Patrice Bergeron, Brad Marchand and David Pastrnak contributed 11 points to the victory, while the Lightning's big line of Nikita Kucherov, Steven Stamkos and J.T. Miller was held in check. While the score was definitely a punch to the gut for many fans here in the Bolts Nation, there were a couple of players who were a little worse for wear after the contest. We weren't executing very well.

"We have a good bunch of guys, we've been through a lot together this year", Fleury said Sunday.

Marchand had a goal and three assists, while Pastrnak finished with four assists in a dominating performance.

"You need your best players to be your best players, and clearly that happened tonight for us", Cassidy said.

Bill Cosby Was Just Found Guilty Of Sexually Assaulting A Woman
Jurors heard Cosby paid the girl accusing him of sexual assault almost $3.4m (£2.4m) in a civil settlement in 2006. And moments later, attorney Gloria Allred stood with Cosby accusers saying she is "the happiest I have been".

The first line struck again at 10:11 on Bergeron's second of the game. Charlie McAvoy wound up for a slap shot, and Marchand redirected it past Lightning goalie Andrei Vasilevskiy for his fourth goal of the playoffs.

The Bruins entered Monday night with a 1-0 series lead.

The Lightning, in the conference semifinals for the third time in four years, remain confident. Yanni Gourde, Tyler Johnson, Brayden Point and Ondrej Palat scored for Tampa. After suffering through a 7 game series, the Bruins breezed by the Lightning. "It's the same thing".

With the Bruins leading 3-1, Tampa Bay was given a power play on a questionable penalty against Jake DeBrusk. Malkin had three goals and two assists in five games before being injured against Philadelphia, and the line of Colton Sissons, former Pittsburgh center Nick Bonino and Watson combined for 19 points in beating Colorado.

"If I'm playing, I'm ready to play", Malkin said.

GM quarterly profit falls but beats Wall Street estimates
Chief Financial Officer Chuck Stevens said the production drop had resulted in a drop in pre-tax profit of up to $800 million. Shares in the automobile giant dipped 83 cents, or 2.2%, within a 52-week trading range of $31.92 to $46.76.

"Yeah, they're out skating right now, so I assume they'll be fine", Cassidy said.

Tampa cut the lead to 3-2 on the power play while Rask was experiencing an equipment malfunction.

"We've had a pretty good run so far this season", Fleury said, per Danny Webster of NHL.com. "Now we just move on to Game 2", said Pastrnak after the Saturday's win. "No question. But they got six, and in the end we have to raise the level of our game to get back in this series". The camera caught Riley Nash reacting with the same kind of "ohhhh" a fan would when he deflected a David Backes shot just over the net with the Bruins were still trying to give Vasilevskiy his first test ...

The second period featured some playoff craziness that was truly unprecedented. Also, Boston had to go 7 games with the Toronto Maple Leafs in the 1st round, whereas Tampa Bay dispatched the New Jersey Devils in 5 games.
