Bruins, Lightning ready for matchup with postseason feel

The Boston Bruins and Tampa Bay Lightning meet for the third time this season on Monday night, and while very little is at stake in terms of Stanley Cup Playoffs positioning for the top two teams in the Eastern Conference, the intensity level should be through the roof.

In fact, it will probably feel like a playoff game.

After a thoroughly convincing 7-3 win over the Florida Panthers in South Florida on Saturday night, the Bruins (46-20-9) travel to the Sunshine State's west coast for the second time to face Tampa Bay at Amalie Arena at 7:30 p.m. ET.
