Bruins Trying To Steal Top Spot In Division From Lightning On Thursday

The Bruins are back in Boston on Thursday to host the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Tampa Bay has held first place in the Atlantic Division all season, but if the Bruins win Thursday, they will claim the top spot.

It won’t be easy, however. The Lightning’s offense will be a test for the Bruins, as they are led by Hart Trophy candidate Nikita Kucherov. The 24-year-old leads the team with 38 goals and 98 points this season.

For more on the Lightning, check out the “Bruins Face-Off Live” video above, presented by EchoStor Technologies.
