As of this writing, the Boston Bruins and Tampa Bay Lightning traded goals in a high-stakes game on NBCSN. It remains to be seen if Boston will be able to control its destiny, however, as the Pittsburgh Penguins will enter the third period against the Buffalo Sabres with a 1-0 lead.
Brandon Sutter’s 20th goal might not be of the highlight reel variety, but it was a work of art for anxious Penguins fans:
If that ends up being Sutter’s fourth game-winner of the season, the Penguins will clinch a playoff berth and boot Boston. A lot can change in the meantime, though.
