The Bruins were back in action last night, looking to build on their win from the night before, hosting the Tampa Bay Lightning and the TD Garden. Marc Savard’s return was just what the doctor ordered. The team was on fire from the time the puck dropped to start the first period. Led behind David Krejci’s 2 goal night and Michael Ryder’s 3 point night, the B’s put 8 goals up on the scoreboard. This was the first time they’ve put up 8 goals since the beginning of the 2008 campaign. Tim Thomas played incredible once again, making 37 saves on 38 shots. The underlying theme of last night’s game was the return of Marc Savard to the lineup. He logged about 16 minutes of ice team and played real well. He’s an added addition to the team.
In addition, there were talks that the Bruins traded Marco Sturm to the LA Kings. These reports are still unconfirmed, and he is currently still with the team.
