Bruins’ Penalty Kill Leads Way in Season-Opening Victory Over Lightning (Video)

The Boston Bruins started the 2013-14 season with a 3-1 victory over the Tampa Bay Lightning on Thursday night in front of the hometown fans at TD Garden.

The key to the B’s win was a remarkable performance on the penalty kill. Boston created several quality scoring chances while killing penalties, which resulted in two shorthanded goals, one from a penalty shot by Chris Kelly and another by Patrice Bergeron.

The Bruins were 5-for-5 on the penalty kill overall, which is a tremendous accomplishment given the offensive firepower that Tampa Bay has on its power-play units.

Check out the video above as Bruins players and head coach Claude Julien discuss the penalty kill and more from Thursday’s victory.
