2011 NHL Playoffs: Bruins Shut Out Lightning 2-0, Lead Series 2-1

The Boston Bruins win Game 3 to bring the series to a 1-2 Bruins lead. The Tampa Bay Lightning were behind from the start of this game when Bruins Forward David Krejci took advantage of a Lightning defensive lapse to score his seventh post-game goal and brought the score to 0-1 Bruins. Throughout the second period, the Bruins dominating defense denied Lightning the equalizer. Likewise, several great saves by Lightning goalie Dwayne Roloson and solid coverage by Lightning defense kept the score 0-1 Bruins.

8 minutes into the third period, a slap shot by Bruins Defenseman Andrew Ference went through Roloson's legs to increase the Bruins lead to 2-0 and crush Tampa's hope for an easily manageable comeback. The Lightning failed to convert yet another power-play off a hooking penalty against Bruins gigantic Defenseman Zdeno Chara and the score finished with a Bruins 0-2 win.


Game Notes:
Bruins Forward Patrice Bergeron played the same amount of minutes as in his pre-injury games
Awful defensive lapses have cost the Bolts more than a couple goals this series. Will Guy Boucher tighten his team's defensive game?
