BOSTON – Patrice Bergeron and Brad Marchand scored shootout goals to lift the Boston Bruins to a 3-2 victory over the Tampa Bay Lightning on Thursday night.
Boston beat Tampa Bay for the 10th straight time, the longest active slide for a Bruins opponent. Since joining the NHL in 1992, the Lightning have won only five times in 48 games at Boston.
The Lightning have also never beaten the Bruins after regulation in 18 tries, going 0-9-9. Tampa Bay failed to capitalize on a power play in overtime.
Tuukka Rask made 35 saves for Boston, which is 6-0-1 in its last seven games, including four straight wins.
Vladislav Namestnikov tied it 2-2 for Tampa Bay with 11:56 remaining in the third period when he slid the puck through Rask's pads.
Ben Bishop made 28 saves for Tampa Bay, which had its four-game winning streak snapped. Tyler Johnson, who leads the Lightning with 66 points, extended his career-best point streak to eight games.
Bergeron scored 2:20 into the third when his slap shot got under Bishop's glove for a 2-1 Bruins lead.
David Pastrnak converted a feed from Ryan Spooner to give the Bruins a 1-0 lead at 7:57 of the first period. The goal was reviewed briefly because the puck went in the net off Pastrnak's skate.
Tampa Bay's Steven Stamkos picked off a pass by Bruins defenseman Zdeno Chara and scored an unassisted goal to tie it at 15:29.
Stamkos received a misconduct with 1:01 left in overtime when his stick broke and he threw it into the crowd.
