With the NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs narrowed down to four teams, the pressure is mounting.
The Tampa Bay Lightning will happily host the Boston Bruins today as they look to even up the Eastern Conference Finals.
The Bruins currently have a 2-1 lead but will need to keep Tampa on the mat if they want to close out. Letting the Bolts back into the series will be a fatal mistake.
Stars so far have been both goalies – Tim Thomas and Dwayne Roloson – as well as rookie Tyler Seguin and vet Vincent Lecavalier. Look for others to step up as the series gets deeper.
