Bruins firing on all cylinders as Lightning visit

Though the Boston Bruins are off to one of the hottest starts in the NHL, it wasn't until their latest win that the team showed signs of firing on all cylinders.

David Pastrnak scored all four goals in a 4-2 victory over the Anaheim Ducks on Monday, but most important was that two of his tallies came in the third period -- Boston's first scores in the frame this season. That kind of start-to-finish production will be needed Thursday, when the Bruins host the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Prior to Monday, Boston had scored nine of its 12 goals in the first period. Against the Ducks, Pastrnak struck once in both the first and second, before putting the game away with his third-period strikes 2:14 apart as the Bruins won for the fifth time in six games to kick off the year.
