Lightning’s Nikita Kucherov Capitalizes On Bruins’ Mistake, Scores Power-Play Goal


The Tampa Bay Lightning tied Thursday’s game against the Boston Bruins just 14 seconds after a Zdeno Chara shorthanded second-period goal.

The Lightning’s Nikita Kucherov blasted a one-timer past Bruins goalie Tuukka Rask for his 35th goal of the season. The Bruins had just regained the lead, but the Lightning came storming back to tie it on the power play. Bruins forwards Dominic Moore and Ryan Spooner got confused on the penalty kill, leaving Kucherov wide open for the power-play goal.

As of March 30, the Berkshire Bank Foundation has raised $11,500 for Cradles to Crayons, which provides children from birth through age 12, living in homeless or low-income situations, with the essential items they need to thrive -- at home, at school and at play.

Earlier this season, the foundation raised $10,000 for Soldier On, a private nonprofit organization committed to ending veteran homelessness, and $12,100 for Birthday Wishes, a non-profit organization with a mission to provide birthday parties to children experiencing homelessness.
