Patrice Bergeron Takes Advantage of Lightning Defensive Lapse to Extend Bruins’ Early Lead (Video)


The Lightning are mostly known for their prolific offense, and on Thursday they had a defensive lapse that allowed the Bruins an early two-goal lead.

Patrice Bergeron was ignored by a few Lightning defenders who had their eyes on the puck and not the open man, and the Bruins assistant captain was able to slot home a one-timer. Of course, credit the Bruins’ forecheck for making the play happen in the first place.

Check out the breakdown of the Bruins’ second goal on the Amica Coverage cam in the video above.
