The Boston Bruins lost once again on Wednesday night. If the Bruins want to win the series they are going to have to improve their game before it’s too late.
This is the 2nd straight game the Boston Bruins had a rough start. You would have thought that the Bruins would have improved playing at home, but that was not the case.
It was a horrible start. It only took 3 minutes for the Lightning to have a two-goal lead on the Bruins. The Bruins couldn’t get anything going early on. They once again struggled early on and made way too many mistakes.

Rask didn’t have a terrible game. He didn’t have a damning goal like in game 2. Rask stopped 33 shots and once again kept the Bruins in the game. Rask has been a much better goaltender this series.
Where did the depth go?
The Bruins were known for their depth the entire season. They had production from all over the ice, but now it has all stopped.
The only line that has been consistent is the Bruins first line. They have been the source of the Bruins scoring for the entire series as well as the entire playoffs.
Once again on Wednesday night the Bruins sole scoring came from the top line. Patrice Bergeron put home a bouncing puck to make it a 1 goal game.
If the Bruins want to make it to the Eastern Conference Finals they have to improve their game fast. They can not rely on one line to do all their scoring. Also the Bruins cannot be making a ton of mistakes like they did in games 2 and 3. They need to play a clean 60 minutes.
The Boston Bruins are down for the first time this series. Now the Bruins will show us what they are made off. Hopefully, they will bounce back and show us that they have the capability to win a Stanley Cup.
