The Bruins did not play their best hockey on Monday night in a 3-1 win over the Lightning. Luckily for the B's, though, they had Tim Thomas and a couple of timely goals.

While the Bruins may not have played their best game on Monday, NESN Bruins analyst Barry Pederson thinks that the Lightning also haven't played their best hockey to this point in the Eastern Conference final.

Pederson talked with Tom Caron on Red Sox Gameday Live Presented by UNO about Game 6, and he said that he expects the Lightning to come out strong on Wednesday, as they look to avoid elimination.
