Lightning Struck First by Momma Gouche

                                  Teddy Purcell scored 00:39 minutes into the Tampa Bay Lightning/Boston Bruins game on Wednesday night, to put the Lightning ahead 1-0. Dwayne Roloson was back in Tampa Bay’s net and did an excellent  job in holding off the Bruins, who were anxious  to finish the series. It was an action packed game and both teams appeared up to it. The ten penalties were shared equally, but unfortunately for the Bruins three of their’s lead to three power play goals; which might have been the difference. Milan Lucic scored at 7:09 and David Krejci netted another and the Bruins were ahead 2-1 at the end of the first. Martin St Louis got a power play goal at 7:55 of the second and Teddy Purcell another power play goal at 13:35. The tide had turned again and Tampa Bay were up 3-2 going into the third. Steve Stamkos added another power play goal 34 seconds into the third and the Lightning had a 2 goal edge. Boston’s David Krejci got his second power play goal at 9:46 and Martin St Louis got his second goal at 10:15. David Krejci scored his third goal at 13:26, and the scoring ended there.Tampa Bay went on to win the game and thus set the stage for game seven. David Krejci had got a hat trick, Teddy Purcell had two goals, Steven Stamkos had three points and Tomas Kaberle and Vincent Lacavalier each had two.There were lots of stars in the game, but perhaps the worst disappointment was David Krejci getting three goals in a losing game. However there is one more game to decide who will challenge the Vancouver Canucks for the right to lift the Stanley Cup.
