No. 3 Boston Bruins at No. 5 Tampa Bay Lightning
GAME 6: BOS 4 – TBL 5

TAMPA – Another elimination game for the Lightning and another win.

Teddy Purcell lit the lamp only 36 seconds into the game, but it was short lived as the Bruins struck twice from Milan Lucic and David Krejci to take a 2-1 lead into intermission.

The Lightning got their first attempt at a power play in the second period, and they didn’t waste it. Martin St. Louis scored on the first and a few minutes later, Purcell got his second of the night on the team’s second opportunity.

Thirty-four seconds into the third period, Steven Stamkos scored on a carry-over power play to make the Lightning 3-for-3 with the man-advantage and a 4-2 lead. Krejci brought the Bruins back to within one on his tally on the power play and only the fifth power-play goal of the postseason for Boston.

St. Louis scored his second of the night on a 2-on-1 with Steve Downie 29 seconds after Krejci. But Krejci wasn’t done as he scored his third of the game for a natural hat trick a little over three minutes later.

The Lightning were able to survive the last 6:32 of the game to win 5-4 and force a Game 7 on Friday night.

Dwayne Roloson was back in the net as the starter for the game and remains undefeated when facing elimination.
