Bergeron Returns, Tim Thomas Gets Shutout as B’s Stop Lightning

Thomas makes 31 saves in Bruins' 2-0 win

      TAMPA, Fla. (AP) – Tim Thomas made 31 saves for his first
playoff shutout this season and second overall, Andrew Ference and
David Krejci scored and the Boston Bruins beat the Tampa Bay
Lightning 2-0 in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference finals Thursday
night.
      Thomas, the favorite to win the Vezina Trophy as the top
regular-season goalie, gave up nine goals in the first two games of
the series that the Bruins lead 2-1.
      Ference made it 2-0 with a shot from point at 8:12 of the third
as the puck trickled between the legs of Lightning goalie Dwayne
Roloson and into the net.
      Game 4 is Saturday in Tampa.
