Bruins focusing on Game 5 after loss ties series @NHLdotcom

BOSTON (AP) - The Boston Bruins say they're concentrating on Game 5 of the Eastern Conference finals against the Tampa Bay Lightning and not on the game they just lost.

The Bruins watched video but didn't skate on Sunday, one day after a 5-3 loss in which they squandered a 3-0 lead. Tampa Bay evened the best-of-seven Eastern Conference finals, but Boston still has home-ice advantage going into Monday night's game.

Bruins left wing Milan Lucic said if they dwell on the last game it will only make things worse. Boston coach Claude Julien said that at this point in the playoffs, there's no reason to make major changes.

Tampa Bay expects to have Dwayne Roloson back in goal after he was benched with about two minutes left in the first period when the Lightning fell behind 3-0.
