Nick Ritchie’s Five Minute Major Penalty The Turning Point in Bruins’ 3-1 Loss to Tampa Bay

Ondrej Palat scored twice, Andrei Vasilevskiy made 29 saves, and the Tampa Bay Lightning beat the Boston Bruins 3-1 to take a commanding 3-1 lead in their second-round series. Victor Hedman also scored a pinball, bouncing goal on Boston goaltender Jaroslav Halak. Halak has started every game since starter Tuukka Rask opted out of the playoffs in the middle of the first round. Tampa Bay has won three in a row since losing the series opener. Palat has four goals in that time, including the Game 2 overtime winner. The Lightning have the chance Monday to move on to the Eastern Conference final for the second time in three years.
