Brad Marchand suspended for two games for Boston

The Bruins had outplayed the Lightning throughout the period but the game was still very much up for grabs - meaning that so was a potential playoff-clincher for Marchand and his teammates. On Jan. 31, in the first game back from the All-Star Break, the Tampa Bay Lightning are set to take on the Boston Bruins.

"Marchand turns, opens up the blade of his stick, and delivers a forceful spear directly to the groin of Dotchin". Nikita Kucherov leads the team with 81 points and linemate Ondrej Palat is red hot with three goals and 10 assists over the past eight contests.

While Marchand will be available for the postseason, his untimely transgression could have an effect on what opponent the B's see in the first round - Toronto, Ottawa or the very unpalatable draw of the Presidents' Trophy-winning Washington Capitals.

"It's a new feeling".

MacArthur, who hadn't played since October 14, 2015 due to concussion problems, called it the most nerve-wracking game of his career. "I think every single guy in this room did his job today and that's why we got the win". Connor McDavid leads the National Hockey League with 94 points, seven points ahead of Chicago's Patrick Kane, and factored on all three goals (1g/2a) in the Oilers' 3-2 overtime win against Anaheim on Saturday. "This team battled through some ups and downs throughout the year and it was one of those years where we really had to come together". The Bruins haven't beaten either team this season.

Marchand is having a career season for the Bruins and has arguably been their MVP.

"It feels great. The city deserves it". The puck fell in between Victor Hedman and Andrej Sustr who both tried to swat at the puck but missed. "Everybody can breathe a little bit easier now, but we still have two games left before the real games start". The Lightning boast 24 goals in their last five victories after a 6-3 triumph against Dallas on Sunday and also visit Toronto (Thursday) and Montreal (Friday) before ending the regular season at home against Buffalo on Sunday. Lightning trainer Tom Mulligan tended to Dotchin, who remained on the ice for several minutes before skating off on his own.

Edmonton (44-25-9, 97 pts) has clinched a playoff spot for the first time since 2006, and has posted a 9-1-0 record in its last 10 games.
