Bergeron also scored twice and had an assist on one of Nash's goals for the Bruins, who finished one point behind Tampa Bay for the Atlantic Division title, as well as the No. 1 seed in the East.

Tampa Bay went about that with an intense practice on Sunday as the coaching staff looks to deliver the message that the opening-game effort was good but not almost at the level needed to compete in the second round of the playoffs. Marchand and Pastrnak once again picked up the assists.

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

Minutes earlier, Ondrej Palat scored what appeared to be a back-breaking goal to give the Lightning a 3-1 lead.

Then in the third period, Bergeron added insurance for the Bruins at 10:11 with his second goal of the game, which put Boston up 5-2.

TAMPA - There was Brad Marchand standing all alone to the right of Lightning goalie Andrei Vasilevskiy."I messed up on that", Tyler Johnson said.

One of hockey's most revered coaches paid the Bruins a top compliment after the Game 1 win against the Lightning.

Saturday's game could not have gone any better for the Boston Bruins. "It's the same thing".

The Lightning, in fact, got almost as many shots through to Tuukka Rask - 36 - as the Bruins attempted (37).


The B's tied the game 1-1 at 18:30 on defenseman Charlie McAvoy's first goal of the playoffs.

While Cassidy said that Krejci is dealing with a "very minor injury", he expects both Krejci and Miller to be good to go for Game 2. You play hard, you get penalties - that's fine.

"You can look at the outshot them, outattempted them, outchanced them, all that stuff", Cooper said, per Martin Fennelly of the Tampa Bay Times.

After gradually finding their legs against the better-rested Lightning, who hadn't played in a week after a five-game first-round win over the Devils, the Bruins lost a Marchand goal that would have made it 3-1 halfway through the second period because of a marginal cross-checking penalty called on Pastrnak.

Tuukka Rask kept it scoreless until Yanni Gourde broke through on the power play at 11:47.

"The goal of our practice was to put us in the best position to be ready to play (Monday night)", Cooper said. "We're going to wake up in the morning, somebody is going to look at the score and say Tampa is down 1-0". "And like every game, I just tried to give my team a chance to win".

Now even though the Bruins defeated the Lightning 6-2, they need to focus on some aspects of their game. Nash fired a wrist shot through traffic that beat Vasilevskiy high to the stick side. The Bruins had exactly zero at that time ...

Before he told a TV audience on Monday that "poor" Brayden Point might have been a minus-5 in Game 1 but the loss wasn't his fault, Cooper would have made sure his 22-year old forward understood that himself.

The Marchand-Bergeron-Pastrnak line has been marvelous for the Bruins in the 2018 Stanley Cup Playoffs.
