Bruins vs. Lightning Recap: Home Woes Continue

Can we just switch all of the remaining home games to road games?

After scoring the first goal of the game, the Bruins allowed four straight goals to the Tampa Bay Lightning on Sunday night, losing a very important divisional matchup at home.

The Bruins currently sit at 74 points, good for third in the division, and just four points behind Florida, but are trailed by Detroit by one point. In other words, the standings are extremely tight, so it is a good idea to win games against division rivals.

The lone goal of the night came from none other than Kevan “The Sniper” Miller. His point shot found its way through traffic and beat Ben Bishop to break the scoreless tie 6:01 into the game.

Miller has five goals on the season. Torey Krug has three. What.

After opening up the scoring, the B’s continuously shot themselves in the foot with turnovers, giving Tampa odd-man rush after odd-man rush. None was worse than this one by Adam McQuaid.

This goal gave the Bolts a 2-1 lead, and they never looked back.

Tonight was yet another example of how the team NEEDS to improve its defense. The trade deadline is Monday at 3 p.m., so Dealin Donny needs to come out of hiding and make things happen. Don’t forget about that Eriksson guy.

Who knows how different the team will look come Wednesday, but it better at least bring a better effort. The Bruins will host the Flames on Tuesday, before the Blackhawks and Capitals come to town. Buckle up; things could get pretty bumpy.
