The general manager said the team would love to have James van Riemsdyk, Tyler Bozak and Leo Komarov back next season, but added the trio has "earned the right to see what the market is".
Marchand scored, of course, because it was that kind of game for the Lightning.
"I think it starts with the leaders in the room". Pastrnak, who had an assist on the goal, has 17 points (five goals, 12 assists) in eight playoff games to lead the National Hockey League. If the Bruins can lock down these guys they will be in good shape. We have to do a better job, and I know we can do that. The Lightning's Andrei Vasilevskiy was sharp against New Jersey (10 goals allowed, .941 save percentage) while Boston's Tuukka Rask (19 goals allowed, .899) had his struggles in the final three games against the Maple Leafs after plenty of goal support at the start.
One thing about the playoffs is that you can blow a 3-1 lead, win a Game 7 and pretend like nearly nothing dramatic happened.
That is what the line will be charged with. The three were by far Tampa Bay's best against the Devils, combining for 16 points, led by Kucherov's five goals.
"I don't think I can sit here on any one of those goals and point to (Point) on that", Cooper said.
Saturday's 2018 NHL Stanley Cup playoffs slate puts two offenses in the spotlight for different reasons.
But Rask, who finished the period with some more stellar saves, refused to let it derail his game. Rick Nash got his blade on the puck and redirected it between Vasilevskiy's pads for his second power-play goal of the playoffs. In the second period, the Bruins had a scoring chance get taken away from them after Marchand scored. That was a back-breaker of a goal.
Alcoa (AA) Drops 12%: Cycles Suggest to Sell The Bounce
Rusal produces 7% of the world's aluminum, and the United States is its second-biggest market after Russian Federation . Representatives at Alcoa didn't immediately respond to phone calls and emails seeking comment.
Hall of Famer-to-be Marty St. Louis tweeted playfully after the DeBruisk goal that he'd used that outside, slide the puck inside move, over and over again when he was in Tampa Bay.
"I think the guys are excited".
"We just got a couple of plays that bounced our way", Marchand said. That ice is horrendous, so sometimes it bounces your way, sometimes it doesn't.
Luck, maybe. Experience, for sure.
"They have incredible talent there", Marchand said, "but they're a little deeper defensively".
The Bruins went on the power play at 17:03 when right winger Ryan Callahan tripped Kevan Miller along the end boards.
Still, it was the combination of a belief that the NHL's best team in the third period would get it done at that time in the game, and it was a future Hall of Famer who's played in a whopping 12 Game 7s stepping up and leading the voices of experience that set up four unanswered goals in the final 20 minutes. Every time you look up and Canada is winning, usually Marchand or Bergeron had something to do with it.
Vegas netted seven tallies in its first-round sweep of the Los Angeles Kings but came alive for the offensive outburst in Game 1 to enter Saturday with a 1-0 series lead. The hardest and simplest one is to score more but to do that they need to slive the puzzle that is Andersen. "Hopefully, it keeps going, but it's a new team you're playing, a new series. We have faith in that".
