Ryan Donato and Danton Heinen scored the goals for the Boston Bruins in the loss. With that loss, the Tampa Bay Lightning have the top spot in the Eastern Conference. Bruce Cassidy said after the game ” There were more breakdowns where they got behind us. We have to correct that. Way too many times tonight. That’s not winning hockey. Not winning puck battles in front of your net. Not winning hockey. Managing the puck between blue lines as forwards. Not winning hockey.”
Also, Patrice Bergeron spoke after the game saying “Hopefully we learn from [this] and hopefully we realize this is going to be the hockey we’re going to play. If we want to play until June that’s how it’s going to be. We have to realize that and be better.” Tuukka Rask got the start in net and did have 31 saves in the loss.
