Bruins hoping to salvage road trip

Boston (40-11-8) at Tampa Bay (19-28-12), 5:00 p.m. EST

TAMPA, Florida (Ticker) -- The Boston Bruins hope to end their

five-game road trip on a high note when they visit the

struggling Tampa Bay Lighting on Sunday.

Boston, which had won 11 of its previous 12 games away from home

prior to the trip, has struggled on its current stretch.

The Bruins were blanked for the second time in four games on

Saturday, falling, 2-0, at the Florida Panthers.

Tomas Vokoun made 41 saves and Radek Dvorak scored both goals

for Florida, which handed Boston its fifth defeat in six games.

The Bruins are 1-2-1 on their current trip and 1-3-2 in their

last six games.

Boston hopes to get back on track against Tampa Bay, which is

winless in its last four games (0-3-1) and is 2-7-2 in its last

11 contests overall.

Vaclav Prospal scored the Lightning's lone goal in his team's

4-1 loss at Carolina on Friday. Tampa Bay managed only 13 shots

on goal.

This game will also match a struggling power play against a

struggling penalty-killing unit. Boston has four goals in its

last 45 opportunities with the man-advantage, but Tampa Bay has

allowed power-play tallies in each of its past five games.
