Mark Recchi sent a wrist shot past Dan Ellis with 19.7 seconds remaining in regulation to give the Bruins a 4-3 victory over the Lightning on Tuesday night in Tampa.
Recchi's goal was the B's second power-play tally of the night, as the Bruins were on the man advantage late in the contest thanks to a boarding call against Steven Stamkos for a hit on Gregory Campbell.
Michael Ryder, Steven Kampfer and Brad Marchand scored in the first, second and third periods, respectively, to give the Bruins leads in each period. Kampfer's second-period tally was his first career NHL goal, while Marc Savard got his 700th point in assisting it.
The Lightning were able to tie the game following each of the B's first three goals, getting tallies from Stamkos, Vincent Lecavalier and Martin St. Louis.

It wasn't a vintage Celtics performance, but it was good enough in a 95-83 win over the Pacers Tuesday night. The Celtics trailed by double digits in the first and second half, but rallied behind ex-Pacer Marquis Daniels, who had his best game of the season. Daniels finished with 12 points, five rebounds and four assists, while Ray Allen (17 points) and Paul Pierce (21) took turns leading the Celtics offense.
The turning point came when Nate Robinson banged heads with Mike Dunleavy midway through the third quarter and had to go back to the locker room. When Robinson returned, he had a bandage over his eye. Ironically, Robinson's injury allowed Daniels to take over as point guard, and that was when Daniels proceeded to take over the game.

Right-handed relief pitcher Bobby Jenks, who signed with the Red Sox earlier this month, told MLB.com's Scott Merkin that the Rangers tried signing him as a starting pitcher. All 329 of Jenks' appearance since reaching the majors in 2005 have come in relief, though he was a starter for five seasons in the Angels organization.
The reliever said his "first hope" was to return to the White Sox, but that the team "never made it seem" like it wanted him back, a point that was made clearer when they gave his No. 45 to free agent slugger Adam Dunn. Jenks ended up taking a two-year, $12 million deal with the Red Sox.
In six seasons, all with the White Sox, Jenks has posted a 3.40 ERA and 1.20 WHIP while compiling 173 saves.
