The Tampa Bay Lightning trail the Boston Bruins 2-1 after two periods at TD Garden. The Bruins dominated the second period but managed only one goal against the Bolts, a Dennis Seidenberg shot with five minutes remaining. The goal occurred during four-on-four play and Seidenberg slipped in from the bad angle and fired a quick wrist shot from Dwayne Roloson's left side for the 2-1 lead.
Boston has out-shot the Lightning 23-8 so far but Tampa is still in it thanks to Roloson and the Bruins' inability to convert. For Tampa, it was Steven Stamkos who scored his 54th goal of the year to open the scoring just five minutes into the first period. But the Bruins, who are still playing for the Northeast Division title, responded with Shawn Thornton's fifth goal of the season to even it up.
