The Boston Bruins are looking to keep up the momentum from their win over the Carolina Hurricanes when they take on the Tampa Bay Lightning in Round 2 of the Stanley Cup Playoffs, beginning on Sunday night.
The Bruins entered the qualifying round of the playoffs as the top team in the NHL but quickly fell to the No. 4 seed after losing all three round robin games. Despite losing veteran goalie Tuukka Rask, the Bruins managed to change the pace of the series winning 2-1 in Game 5 Wednesday night to advance over the Canes.

The Lightning, who beat the Bruins 3-2 in the qualifying round, bested the Columbus Blue Jackets in Game 5 to advance to Round 2, even without star forward Steven Stamkos.
This series is poised to be a heated matchup which will boil down to the Bruins Defense vs. the Lightning’s offense – both of which are lacking key players.
