  • Boston Bruins Can Clinch a Playoff Spot Tuesday Night With Win Over Tampa Bay

It might have been a costly victory for the Bruins, who played the last two periods without leading scorer Brad Marchand after he speared Tampa Bay's Jake Dotchin in front of the Lightning net. Boston had a game plan for shutting Tampa Bay down by smothering the Lightning in their own zone and clogging the neutral zone, and they executed it to perfection.

Now that the Bruins have clinched their playoff spot, it's time to get a little greedy.

This marks the third and final meeting of the season between Washington and Boston. "They won a huge game without me the other night, and they're going to be ready to play regardless".

If the Lightning were to win their remaining three games and the Bruins lose their final two, each would finish with 94 points. The forward, who sits on 39 goals and 85 points through 80 regular season games, has been suspended four times in the past and fined twice - including a fine already this year for a unsafe trip to opponent Niklas Kronwall. Anything longer than that and the Bruins immediately face an uphill battle to open the first round of the playoffs without the heart of their offensive attack.

Marchand drew a five-minute major penalty and a game misconduct at 19:20 of the first period Tuesday night.

"So, a couple games here.still a very capable team on the ice". Marchand was suspended four times for 12 games total prior to this punishment.

The Tampa Bay Lightning hasn't been eliminated yet. Brian Dumolin added his first regular-season goal in more than two years as the Penguins moved three points ahead of Columbus in the race to have home-ice advantage in the first round of the playoffs.

Vasilevskiy could only do so much as Boston's passing forced Lightning defenders out of position with 18 seconds left on the penalty kill, where Zdeno Chara blasted a one-timer between Vasilevskiy's legs to put the game out of reach. There are four games remaining on the Lightning's schedule and they have to win all of them and hope for the teams ahead of them to lose most of their upcoming games to get into the playoffs, which is a lot to ask for.
