Lightning vs. Bruins Scoring Chances - Game 4

TAMPA, FL - MAY 21: Simon Gagne #12 of the Tampa Bay Lightning celebrates scoring a third period goal with teammates as Tim Thomas #30 and Dennis Seidenberg #44 of the Boston Bruins reacts in Game Four of the Eastern Conference Finals during the 2011 NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs at St Pete Times Forum on May 21, 2011 in Tampa, Florida.

It's now apparent to everyone that the most dangerous lead in hockey is 3-0.  After Dwayne Roloson gave up a run of soft goals, Tampa found themselves behind once again.  Fortunately for Tampa, Boston's defense continues to play the part of the patsy.  Own-zone coverage has been an issue for the entire series for the Boston defense and the only line they're getting help from is the Patrice Bergeron line.  Boston's "scoring line" has been terrible through four games -- including today's results, the Milan Lucic - David Krejci - Nathan Horton line's chance totals are 5-16, 5-20, 6-17 respectively.

The chances came in bursts, but in the end they evened out.  Roloson gave up a goal on a non-chance in the first and couldn't stop the puck on two of the other three chances against him in the period.  It was a deserving hook.

Lecavalier has struggled since Patrice Bergeron returned to the lineup, but he also lost Simon Gagne to the Stamkos line.  Marc-Andre Bergeron's minutes are being managed very carefully, but he's been very effective in the series thus far.  

Boston scored three goals on three chances against Roloson because Bergeron's second goal wasn't a scoring chance.

Bergeron's line has been amazing, but as good as they've been since his return, Krejci's line has been just as bad.

Krejci's line didn't win a single chances matchup and Peverley didn't lose one.
