In a meeting of two division-leading teams on Thursday, the Boston Bruins kept rolling with a 2-1 victory over the Tampa Bay Lightning. It was Boston’s first home game after going 6-0-0 on a six-game road trip, and the Bruins didn’t miss a beat in winning their seventh straight contest and moving into second place in the Eastern Conference standings.

Bruins goaltender Tim Thomas made 27 saves to earn his 29th victory of the season. Late in the third period Milan Lucic converted a for his seventh game-winning goal of the campaign and his second in the past four games. “The puck was going behind the net, and the referee kicks it right back to Lucic, you can’t get more bad luck than that,” said Tampa Bay coach Guy Boucher.

Bad luck is just about the only luck the Lightning have ever had in Boston, where they’ve beaten the Bruins just four times in 35 trips. Tampa lost for the second time in as many nights, and fell to third in the East. With the Washington Capitals beating the St. Louis Blues last night, the Lightning are just one point ahead of the Caps for the Southeast Division lead.

The Bruins have a six-point lead over Montreal in the Northeast Division, and just three points behind the Philadelphia Flyers for the Eastern Conference lead.
