Stanley Cup Playoffs, day 43: Bolts on the brink

Another potential elimination game tonight, but this time in the Eastern Conference Final. The Tampa Bay Lightning are down three games to two to the Boston Bruins, and looking to stay alive.

After he sat at the end of the bench for their game five loss, Dwayne Roloson is back in nets for the Bolts, despite his 4.43 GAA and .862 SP in parts of four games this series. Simon Gagne (3G, 2A) and Vincent Lecavalier (1G, 4A) lead the way offensively for Tampa with five points apiece.

At the other end of the ice, Tim Thomas is starting (naturally). He's sporting a 2.82 GAA and a .920 SP in the five games of the series, and has really had a solid playoff throughout this year's post-season. Remarkable rookie Tyler Seguin has been quiet since his four-point night, but is still tied for the team lead this series in point with three goals and three assists, the same numbers as Michael Ryder.
