Tonight is part II of the Florida tour, where the Bruins go to Amalie Arena in Tampa to face the Conference leading Tampa Bay Lightning.
The Bruins have been struggling a little of late, trying to find a scoring touch while working through their injury situation.
Let’s do some lines.
The Bruins still have P-Bruin callups Colby Cavé, Connor Clifton and Jeremy Lauzon as well as recently returned Ryan Donato.
They performed a couple of roster transactions today. They acquired former Dallas Star Gemel Smith from the waiver wire, They sent defenseman Connor Clifton down to Providence. Kevan Miller is officially on the Injury Reserve, and Charlie McAvoy is officially off of it.

Tonight’s opponent are the Tampa Bay Lightning. They are scary as fuck right now. Anton Stralman and Andrei Vasilevskiy are injured. They called up Eddie Pasquale from the Crunch on Sunday. (h/t Daily Faceoff and @CaleyChelios)

Shitty way to give up a goal.
Aaargh! My pasta comment button sometime no workie. I’ve accidently deleted half my comments tonight. I no computer well.
Charlie looking better.
Except for about 5 minutes at the end of the first, the Bruins have looked good.
Charlie isn’t looking like he’s gotten his groove back.
This Lightning team is scary.
