Tampa Bay vs Boston: how will the second leg go?
25/08/2020, 23:00 GTM
The first meeting turned out to be rather dry. Yes, 5 goals were scored, but 2 of them flew into Boston's goal at the very end.
Tampa Bay have some unpleasant playoff opponents with whom they have had the most problems even during the regular season. The “Lightning” passed heroically “Columbus”, but they failed to start the series with “Boston” with a victory. True, the team fought to the last and almost made a comeback with a score of 0:3, but they simply did not have enough time.
By the way, Victor Hedman scored a double in that match and gave hope to the fans, having distinguished himself in the 6x5 format. Note that John Cooper's squad had three opportunities to excel in the majority, but they did not use any of them. In general, “Tampa” tried to act carefully and it is likely that in the upcoming fights it will reveal itself.

Boston's leaders also woke up and this happened at an opportune moment. For example, Brad Marchand scored a puck and an assist, while David Pastrnyak scored the second goal. The Bruins looked very active in the opening game segment and constantly tried to strain Vasilevsky with throws, but then the activity decreased and because of this they almost gave up the victory.
However, unlike the opponent, the team managed to score the puck in the majority. It is also necessary to say about the actions at the gate of Yaroslav Galak, who, in total, was able to reflect 35 shots and made fantastic saves. Game of "Boston" in the Cup is not much different from the regular season, except that Cassidy's team began to succeed more in attack.
We believe that the game in the second leg should open up, as Tampa realized that indoor hockey in the series with Boston would not lead to good. The Bruins are significantly slowing down in the second and third periods, so it is likely that this time the Lightning will be able to bring things to a victory. In addition, the meeting will be productive.
