Lightning Vs. Bruins: David Krejci Leads Boston Rout In Marc Savard's Return

David Krejci tallied a pair of goals and an assist to lead the Boston Bruins in a rout over the Tampa Bay Lightning Thursday night, highlighted by a four-goal third period. The Bruins had 11 different players record a point while Tim Thomas earned his 13th win of the season, stopping 37 of the 38 shots faced. 

But the best moment of the night may have been when Marc Savard made his season debut, playing for the first time since May because of post-concussion syndrome. 

"He didn't look like he missed a beat out there," Bruins coach Claude Julien said of his star center. "I liked his game from start to finish. His stamina was great."

Milan Lucic, Dennis Seidenberg, Shawn Thornton, Michael Ryder, Mark Recchi and Blake Wheeler added goals in Boston's highest-scoring game of the season. 

The Bruins play at Toronto Saturday at 7 p.m. ET.
