It’s an Eastern Conference showdown that kicks off on Saturday afternoon the Amalie Arena. The Boston Bruins make the trip to Tampa to take on the Tampa Bay Lightning.
On paper, these teams are pretty similar and should make for a very good series. The Bruins have won three of the four games played between the two teams.
For the Boston Bruins they had a very good regular season, but they almost didn’t make it out of their first round matchup with the Toronto Maple Leafs.
After taking a 3-1 series lead they lost two games in a row to force a game seven. In game seven they were losing at one point but had a huge third period and that led to a 7-4 victory.
The defense really struggled against the Maple Leafs all series and with the Lightning being a team that can score like the Maple Leafs that can’t be the case in this one.
They need to be the aggressive team early in the series and try to get out to a fast start especially on the defensive side of the ice.
Tampa Bay Lightning
On the other side of this matchup is the Tampa Bay Lightning who come into this series as slight favorites to win this series but many still believe they will be the team to win the Stanely Cup.
In their first round series of against the New Jersey Devils it didn’t take much work for them to advance winning four of the game games played.
In the one loss the defense struggled and that is what let them down. For the most part they played a complete game though and that led to the success.
To win this series the offense is going to need to be good but they can’t let the defense get away from them.
