Bruins host Lightning in important East contest

BOSTON -- The Boston Bruins and Tampa Bay Lightning, who play each other at TD Garden on Thursday night, sustained losses Tuesday night that hurt their respective playoff chances.

And on Wednesday, while neither was on the ice, more bad news hit both teams.

Victories by the Toronto Maple Leafs and New York Islanders added to the woes of the teams that bring three-game losing streaks into Thursday's contest.
