Tampa Bay Lightning (13-8-1)



Bruins extend NHL-record season-opening home win streak

BOSTON (AP) Taylor Hall scored twice and the Boston Bruins extended their NHL-record streak of home victories to open a season to 13 games with a 3-1 victory over the Tampa Bay Lightning on Tuesday night.

Backup goalie Jeremy Swayman made 27 saves and Brad Marchand added an empty-netter for the Bruins, whose 3-2 overtime win over Carolina on Friday broke the record of 11 set by the 1963-64 Chicago Blackhawks and matched by the Florida Panthers last season.

"For us, it's more about our process that allows us to have positive outcomes," Bruins first-year coach Jim Montgomery said of the streak. "We're together on how we think things should work and we believe in that process."
