Brad Marchand has seven goals and five assists over the last 10 games for Boston.

But by then, the Bruins trailed 3-0 after yielding goals to Palat and Gourde within a 15-second span of the opening period and Sergachev's blistering shot that sailed past goalie Jaroslav Halak at 2:14 of the second. Killorn finished with four shots on net, six shot attempts, six hits and had a blocked shot in a very complete effort for the Lightning.

The Lightning will have a chance to take a commanding 3-1 series lead, while the Bruins will try to tie the series up at 2.

Steven Stamkos is listed as out for game four of this series. It's problematic to expect things that Chara isn't capable of right now given the long layoff and his advanced 43 years of age, but he at least needs to be bulletproof on the penalty kill. Alex Killorn scored a pair of goals, including a power-play goal to lift the Lightning to its second consecutive victory.

Point scored on a breakaway and Killorn added his second goal the night before Kucherov built the lead to 7-1 at 3:58 of the third period.

Song Zhongping, a Hong Kong-based military commentator, said the missile launches were clearly meant to send a signal to the US. Vietnam has repeated asserted its sovereignty over the Paracel Islands, which it calls Hoang Sa.

The Bruins have gone 14-6-3 against division opponents.

The Bruins spent 39 of the 60 minutes of the game defending a Lightning power play. They put up four goals in the second period; two of them being power-play goals.

Tampa Bay Lightning defenseman Ryan McDonagh will not play in Game 2 against the Boston Bruins on Tuesday night due to an undisclosed injury.

"We lost our composure at times and didn't do enough to get back in the game", Bruins coach Bruce Cassidy said. It was a rather one-sided OT up in Toronto, with the Bolts outshooting Boston, 8-1, in the extra frame before Palat struck - the byproduct of a frustrating shift in which both Boston's fourth line and the Brandon Carlo - Torey Krug pairing were unable to clear the puck out of the B's own zone. That's what we lacked tonight for whatever reason. Can the Bruins bounce back from their Wednesday night, 7-1 defeat or will the Lightning and its powerful offense be too much for Boston to handle?
