(Want an in-depth recap of the Tampa Bay Lightning’s impressive comeback from a 3-0 first period deficit to beat the Boston Bruins 5-3 in Game 4? Check out this post, which covers all the bases.)
A lot of people counted out the Lightning once they fell behind 3-0 to start off this afternoon’s Game 4. Some even went as far as to close the book on Tampa Bay’s postseason altogether. Amazingly, many of those same people have been following this year’s playoffs and still assumed that a game could be decided in its first 20 minutes.
This Bolts team won’t quit and the Bruins occasionally struggle with leads (particularly 3-0 ones, many will joke), so the game was far from over. The Lightning bounced back after Dwayne Roloson was yanked in favor of backup Mike Smith while Bruins netminder Tim Thomas struggled in the second period. Ultimately, the Lightning played a great final 40 minutes after suffering some mental lapses in the first 20. Check out Star Cam and Net Cam footage for both teams in the videos below.
