Lightning vs. Bruins Scoring Chances - Game 7

BOSTON, MA - MAY 27: Eric Brewer #2 of the Tampa Bay Lightning knocks David Krejci #46 of the Boston Bruins to the ice in the second period of Game Seven of the Eastern Conference Finals during the 2011 NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs at TD Garden on May 27, 2011 in Boston, Massachusetts.

The Bruins finally put together a game they should've won handily.  They dominated possession and shots, but settled for long-distance stuff in the first and Tampa simply packed it in and blocked shots.  Julien seemed to figure this out in the second and third and the Bruins owned the game.

The shots differential didn't really tell the story of the first period.  The Bruins were settling for perimeter shots and the Lightning kept blocking them down.

Tampa - Best and Worst

Top ES Forward:  Dana Tyrell, Blair Jones +1

Bottom ES Forward:  Simon Gagne -4

Top ES Defenseman:  Marc-Andre Bergeron +2

Bottom ES Defenseman:  Eric Brewer, Victor Hedman -5

Essentially, everyone on this team decided to have their worst game of the series except for ... Marc-Andre Bergeron.  Before seeing the numbers I noted that Gagne was invisible for much of the game and made zero impact.

Bottom ES Forward:  Gregory Campbell, Rich Peverley -4

Top ES Defenseman:  Zdeno Chara, Dennis Seidenberg -5

Bottom ES Defenseman: Tomas Kaberle, Adam McQuaid EVEN

It took them seven games, but Krejci's line finally played like a top line and won the battle.  For as much as Versus talked about Peverley, he was beaten pretty soundly on the chances chart.

Chara and Seidenberg had their best game of the series which coincided with Tampa's worst game.  I'm not sure which one drove the numbers.

Krejci's line dominated and Bergeron's line dominated Lecavalier's line.  Bergeron somehow kept up his stellar play.
