The defending Stanley Cup champions try to snap a stunning
20-game winless streak in Boston when they take on the Bruins
for the third time this season.
The Bruins have 15 wins and five ties in their last 20 home
games against the Lightning since a 3-0 loss on April 9, 1994.
This season, the teams have met twice in Tampa Bay with Boston
winning both meetings by a combined 6-3 margin.
The Lightning won the first two games of their four-game road
trip before falling in Buffalo, 3-1, on Thursday.
Reigning MVP Martin St. Louis scored the lone goal for Tampa
Bay, which went 0-for-4 with the power play and was unable to
generate much offense against the red-hot Sabres and netminder
Tampa Bay might again have a tough time scoring against Boston,
which has allowed a total of four goals in its last three games.
In Thursday's 4-2 triumph over Ottawa, rookie Brad Boyes and
Travis Green scored third-period goals and Glen Murray added a
goal and an assist for the Bruins, who have not won consecutive
games since December 1-3.
