LIGHTNING (18-24-4) at BRUINS (27-13-5)
Last 10: Tampa Bay 2-6-2; Boston 4-5-1
Season series: Third and final meeting of the regular season. This game was originally scheduled for Feb. 9 and postponed due to a snowstorm. The Boston Bruins have won the two games played since, Brad Marchand scoring the decisive goal in both contests.
Big story: The Bruins begin a stretch of three games in four days to end the regular season, two of which are make-ups. After hosting the Tampa Bay Lightning on Thursday, they travel to play the Washington Capitals on Saturday before returning to TD Garden for a Sunday date with the Ottawa Senators, a game postponed in the wake of the Boston Marathon bombings. The Bruins are tied in points atop the Northeast Division with the Montreal Canadiens, but hold a game in hand.
