Boston in the springtime (and Lightning update)

BOSTON - After landing in a light rain yesterday in Boston the weather today is terrific. Sunny with highs in the upper 50’s. The weather was even nice last night for a walk around the North End searching for one of the many wonderful Italian restaurants the area has to offer. Combine some homemade lasagna with a nice Chiant wine and you have the recipe for a great meal.
The recipe likely won’t be very good for the Lightning tonight, however. Tampa Bay has a bad history playing games in this city with three victories all-time. And with the Bruins revving up for the postseason, the task is a tough one tonight.
Lines this morning looked like this:
Matt Smaby had a long conversation with team trainer Tom Mulligan and may be a game-time decision.
Paul Szczechura skated again, but looks to be out.
Mike McKenna gets the start in net for Tampa Bay while the Bruins will go with Manny Fernandez.
