Bruins-Lightning stream: 2020 NHL Stanley Cup Second Round

These division foes were able to complete their series despite the shortened regular season. For the second straight year, the Lightning took three of four from the Bruins. In their final matchup on March 7, Boston and Tampa combined to take 26 penalties for 94 penalty minutes in a scrappy affair.

After starting the first two games of the First Round against Carolina, Tuukka Rask opted out of the playoffs. Jaroslav Halak took over the starting job and won three straight against the Hurricanes to lead the Bruins into the Second Round. This is the 35-year-old’s first time as a playoff team’s “main” goalie since 2015 with the Islanders, but thus far he’s been up to the task. Halak allowed five goals total in three games against Carolina, holding the Hurricanes to just one goal in two of those three games.

Brayden Point leads the Lightning with 10 points this postseason (5G-5A). Point, 24, had seven points in five games against Columbus (4G-3A), scoring the five OT winner in Game 1 and the series-clinching OT winner in Game 5. Point has 27 points in 29 career playoff games (13G-14A), including 8 points (4G-4A) in six career playoff games against the Bruins (five in 2018, Round-robin game in 2020).
