At 8:05 pm, our selection is on the Tampa Bay Lightning over the Boston Bruins.  After being upset in Game 1, the Lightning bounced back nicely last night to take Game 2 in OT over a very determined Bruins team.  Now, with no off-day, the Bolts have to avoid another letdown.  They know now that the Bruins are not going to go away without a fight and there's plenty of size on that Boston roster to go toe-to-toe with the talented and speedy Bolts.  The key to this series will almost certainly be between the pipes.  While the Bruins feature a goalie who was part of a Jennings Trophy-winning tandem in Jaroslav Halak, Tampa has on its side the best young net-minder in the game (and the defending Vezina Trophy winner), Andrei Vasilevskiy.  Ironically by the numbers, Vasileveskiy was actually slightly worse in Game 2 than Game 1, but he was huge for his team when it needed him most.  With its Game 2 victory, Tampa is now 20-7 in its last 27 vs. division opponents.  Take the Lightning.  As always, good luck...Al McMordie.
