Victor Hedman also scored for the Lightning, and Steven Stamkos had two assists. The victory closes the Bruins to within two points of the Lightning for the NHL's top spot with two more meetings with Tampa over the season's final dozen games.

Kucherov scored the tiebreaking goal early in the second on the power play, taking a pass from Stamkos and snapping off a shot to the top far corner for his seventh game-winning goal of the season. Pastrnak has 28 goals and 69 points in 70 games this season.

Domingue's puck-handling mistake while out of position on the game's first shift led to Rattie grabbing the puck behind the Lightning goal. After Domingue fumbled the puck behind his own net, it trickled in to the trapezoid area forcing him back toward his net. His long shot from the point hit Rattie's stick, took an odd bounce and hopped past Montoya for his 12th goal.

NOTES: Tampa Bay recalled G Louis Domingue from Syracuse of the American Hockey League before the game and he dressed as the backup. Callahan played his first 450 games with the New York Rangers. Boston D Zdeno Chara missed his second consecutive game with an unspecified upper-body injury. The Czech forward is six goals off his career high tally for goals (34) after scoring against Tampa a little over three minutes into the game. Lightning head coach Jon Cooper moved two victories behind John Tortorella for the most in franchise history.

On Tuesday, the B's overcame a three-goal third period deficit at Carolina.

Canadian athletes from different sports bonding and sharing challenges helped the country achieve its best-ever Paralympic performance, says chef de mission Todd Nicholson.
