The Boston Bruins protected the house for a 13th straight time this season.
That, more Bruins news and the latest from around the NHL in the latest Boston Hockey Now Bruins Daily:
The home-cooking continued for the Boston Bruins as they beat the Tampa Bay Lightning 3-1 and won their 13th straight game at TD Garden on Tuesday night. Taylor Hall (two goals), and Jeremy Swayman (27 saves), were the heroes in the latest win at home.
NESN Boston Bruins play-by-play man Jack Edwards makes no qualms about being a homer nor does he ever bite his tongue. Sometimes though, it would behoove Jack to have a bleeding tongue. In the humble opinion of this puck scribe, Tuesday night was one of those times. Edwards chirped the weight of Lightning winger Pat Maroon not once, not twice, but three times.
The blue line for the Boston Bruins got a big boost Tuesday as defenseman Derek Forbort returned from a broken finger.
Today marks 19 years since the Boston Bruins made easily one of the Top 5 worse trades in NHL history dealing Joe Thornton to the San Jose Sharks.
