We cant wait until were down three-nothing before we start, you know, bringing it to them.With Jonathan Drouin in the penalty box for tripping, Backes tipped Torey Krugs wrist shot from the right point into the net at 11:45.We started waking up and skating more in the third period. Weve just got to do a better job from the get-go, Drouin said. Definitely some bad bounces didnt go our way, but weve got to be better from the get-go.Boston defenseman John-Michael Liles crashed into the boards after tripping over Bishop cutting near the crease. He was on his back on the ice for a few minutes before being helped off. The team said he had an upper-body injury.Game notes Hayes last goal was on Feb. 24, a span of 35 games. ... The Bruins are 0-6 in games not started by Rask. ... Bruins D Zdeno Chara missed his third straight game with a lower-body injury after skating on his own in the morning. ... Tampa Bay D Anton Stralman was out for the eighth straight game with an upper-body injury. .
