The Bolts

You know, there are times when the Lightning so thoroughly outplay a team that it makes you wonder how bad a game would be if they did that for an entire game. The final 20 minutes of this game saw Tampa Bay punch Boston in the face and never look back. They controlled 65% of the shot attempts and 66% of the scoring chances at 5v5. The only times Boston looked threatening were during the first five minutes of the period and the closing minute.
