NHL.com @NHL

TAMPA, Fla. - Jonas Gustavsson stopped 21 shots and Brett Connolly's power-play goal snapped a third-period tie, helping the Boston Bruins remain unbeaten on the road with a 3-1 victory over the Tampa Bay Lightning on Saturday night.

Connolly scored during a 13-second 5-on-3 opportunity with just over 14 minutes remaining, and the Bruins extended their point streak to seven games (6-0-1) after opening the season with three consecutive losses. They also improved to 5-0-0 on the road in the club's longest such streak since winning a franchise-best nine straight in March 2014.

Tampa Bay continued to sputter offensively, losing its fourth straight game. The defending Eastern Conference champions led the NHL in scoring a year ago, but have been limited to two goals during its longest skid in two seasons.
