Marchand a game-time decision for Bruins in Game 4

The Tampa Bay Lightning is entering a pivotal game against the Boston Bruins in Game 4 and must remain consistent if they want to extend their series lead.

Ondrej Palat scored twice in the first 3:19 to put the Lightning ahead to stay in a 4-1 win at Boston.

Bruce Cassidy also announced that both Jake Debrusk and Brad Marchand will be game time decisions for tonight's contest.

Marchand zipped down the boards into the Tampa zone a fed a lead pass to Bergeron in the slot. Just like Cassidy said I expect them to play. Krug skated off the ice gingerly before being helped down the tunnel.

Boston Bruins center Ryan Donato (17) skates by the bench after scoring his first National Hockey League goal in his first game during a game between the Boston Bruins and the Columbus Blue Jackets on March 19, 2018, at TD Garden in Boston, Massachusetts.

This was a bad period from the Bruins, they were being beaten to the puck losing faceoffs (It is hard to win a faceoff when the best center gets thrown out for batting an eye). Krug (22:25) was teamed frequently with similarly offensive-minded rookie Charlie McAvoy (team-high 27:09), while captain Zdeno Chara and Kevan Miller played more of a shut-down role. Point beat Rask to the bouncing puck, got it to the forehand and flipped in his third of the playoffs.

David Pastrnak's fourth shot of the game found the back of the net (persistence, kids) at 15:28 to get the Bruins out of the first with a chance. The Bruins killed off the short 5-on-3 situation but succumbed to the Bolts pressure at 9:53. Kucherov got the puck to Stamkos and the Lightning Captain wired a puck through Rask to tie the game with 7:04 left to play.

Both hits came in Washington wins as the Caps took a 2-1 lead in the second round of the playoffs. In Game 2, what was a slash by Torey Krug was not a slash by Anton Stralman. It's his eighth career playoff goal. Donato hasn't played a single postseason game since the Bruins took on the Toronto Maple Leafs in Game 2 of the first round. "Sometimes (ice time) might be a little more than we'd like or a little less, but that's just part of coaching".

All in all, the Bruins and the officiating needs to be better, but when the latter fails, the Bruins have to step up and finds ways around it.
