If the Boston Bruins want a shot at the No. 1 seed in the Eastern Conference for the Stanley Cup Playoffs, they need to beat the Tampa Bay Lightning on Wednesday.
The Bruins are 0-1 in round robin play during the 2020 NHL restart after falling 4-1 to the Philadelphia Flyers on Sunday. The Lightning won their round robin opener over the Washington Capitals, so if the Bruins lose in regulation Wednesday in Toronto, they can finish no higher than the No. 3 seed.

If the B's win in regulation, however, the No. 1 seed is still up for grabs. Lightning star Steven Stamkos won't play Wednesday due to a lower-body injury, so the opportunity is there for Boston to earn its first win in the NHL bubble after losing its exhibition game to the Columbus Blue Jackets.
Here's how to watch Bruins vs. Blue Jackets online.
