Bruins and Lightning Show Lots of Offense

Bruins, Lightning providing unexpected offense

      TAMPA, Fla. (AP) – Boston and Tampa Bay have played a pair of
surprisingly high scoring games and the trend might continue in the
Eastern Conference finals.
      The series is tied 1-1 and the teams have combined for 18 goals.
      That kind of offense seemed unlikely heading into the matchup
with the top two playoff goalies this season: the Lightning's
Dwayne Roloson and the Bruins' Tim Thomas. Both allowed an average
of two goals a game through the opening two playoff rounds.
      Tampa Bay center Steven Stamkos says one reason is the series
features “two teams that know how to score.”
      Game 3 is Thursday night in Tampa.
