Celtics, Bruins Lose Road Games [VIDEO]
Both the Boston Bruins and Boston Celtics lost tough late season road games last night and that means both teams have more work to do down the stretch if they want to finish first in their conference.
The Bruins lost in Tampa Bay 4-0 as the Lightning struck for three second period goals to break open a scoreless game.
The B's put 33 shots on TB goalie Andrei Vasilevsskiy and stopped all of them. Tuukka Rask made 32 for Boston.
But the nine game streak of getting at least one point in the standings ended.
Now the B's and Lightning are tied in the standings with 110 points. Tampa Bay has two games left. The Bruins have three games left.
In Milwaukee, the Bucks beat the Boston Celtics 106-102 to prevent the C's from inching closer to the #1 spot in the Eastern Conference.
Simply put, too much Greek Freak, Giannis Antetokounmpo. He scored 29 points and hauled down 11 rebounds to lead the Bucks.
Jaylen Brown had 24 and Jayson Tatum had 20 for the Celtics who played without Terry Rozier and Shane Larkin, both added to the injured list of Boston players.
