It could kill Bruins if Lightning power play’s allowed to thrive

“It’s not going to be any different than I think Montreal,” said Paille, who helped limit the Canadiens to just four 5-on-4 goals in the seven-game series. “I think they had a solid group and they scored some key goals for them. But usually the main thing for us is to keep it out of the net. They’ve got a lot of talent, they move the puck very well, they have great shots. We’ve just got to be aware of them and try to stop them as much as we can.”

The Bruins’ best bet would be to just stay out of the penalty box. Inevitably, however, there are going to be infractions, and the Bruins’ penalty-killers are going to have to play smart but aggressive to keep the Lightning’s shots to the perimeter. Some more all-world play from goaltender Tim Thomas will also come in handy.
