The Boston Bruins will hit the next stop of their six-game roadie Wednesday, taking on the Tampa Bay Lightning in the second night of a back-to-back at Amalie Arena.

The B’s got back on track Tuesday, defeating the Florida Panthers in a hard-fought game that wouldn’t have been out of place in any playoff series. It was a good response for Boston, which was called out by head coach Jim Montgomery following back-to-back losses. The Bruins won’t make major changes, though James van Riemsdyk is back in the lineup if morning skate is an indication of anything.

It’s Linus Ullmark’s turn in the goalie rotation, with Jeremy Swayman securing the victory against Florida on Tuesday.
