Shorthanded Goals by Patrice Bergeron, Chris Kelly Power Bruins Past Lightning in Opener (Video)

The Bruins spent a lot of time in the penalty box Thursday night, but they were bailed out by some stellar penalty killing.

Two of Boston’s goals in a 3-1 victory over Tampa Bay were of the shorthanded variety — Chris Kelly‘s coming on a penalty shot — and the Lightning were unsuccessful on all five of their power-play opportunities.

Patrice Bergeron added the second shorthanded tally in the third period, and he took the time to speak with NESN’s Jamie Erdahl during Ace Ticket Presents Bruins Overtime LIVE after the game.

Check out the video above to hear from both Bergeron and third-line winger Jordan Caron.
