The Bruins became the most recent team to fall victim to Steven Stamkos and the Lightning as they fell to Tampa Bay, 3-1, on Monday night.
Michael Ryder scored the lone Bruins' goal at 10:38 of the third, with Tampa Bay getting goals from Dana Tyrell, Stamkos, and Teddy Purcell in the second period.
Though the notable lineup news for the B's entering the game was Tyler Seguin's promotion to the second line, it was the first line that got attention for all the wrong reasons. Milan Lucic, David Krejci, and Nathan Horton registered just one shot total on Lightning goaltender Mike Smith, who made 26 saves to improve to 7-3-0 on the season.
Tuukka Rask relived the season opener once again, as the Bruins stalled in front of him for two periods before attempting a comeback that didn't prove to be good enough. Rask make 33 saves on 36 shots, and with the loss, Rask is now 1-5-1 on the...
The Celtics wasted no time putting the events of the last few days behind them as they jumped on the Hawks early and often in a 99-76 blowout win in Atlanta. Nate Robinson, Shaquille O'Neal and Kevin Garnett all had double-doubles and all 12 Celtic players scored, including rookie Avery Bradley who made his NBA debut.
Robinson filled in for Rajon Rondo, who missed his second straight game with a strained left hamstring, and scored 16 points to go with 10 assists. Garnett added 17 points and 11 rebounds and held Josh Smith without a field goal over 22 minutes.
The Celtics led 39-13 after one quarter and held the Hawks to 14 points in the third quarter, as well. The win snaps a two-game losing skid and also was the first for the Celtics against Atlanta since April 3, 2009. The Hawks won all four meetings last season.

The Celtics are going to be cautious with Rajon Rondo's strained left hamstring and that means that he will sit out Monday night's game in Atlanta. It's the second straight game that Rondo has sat since injuring his hamstring against Oklahoma City Friday night and Doc Rivers told reporters in Atlanta that Rondo could miss Wednesday's game against New Jersey, as well.
Nate Robinson started in Rondo's place Sunday and scored 22 points against the Raptors. There's a chance that rookie Avery Bradley could make his NBA debut while Rondo is on the inactive list.
