    ti on the road in last year’s

    BOSTON — Jon Cooper was asked after Game 3 what his team has done to turn around its series with the Boston Bruins.
    “These guys Authentic Breeland Speaks Jersey , they just find a way,” the Tampa Bay coach said after a 4-1 road victory gave the Lightning a 2-1 lead in the Eastern Conference semifinal. “I guess in the end, they’re putting the team first, putting the team before self. That’s what’s going on right now.”
    The Lightning, who captured the Atlantic Division and overall conference record by a point over the Bruins in the final days of the regular season, surrendered home-ice advantage with a 6-2 loss in the opener. But Wednesday night, they grabbed it back and can now establish a stranglehold on the series with a win in Game 4 on Friday night.
    Wednesday was the 55th time the franchise played at TD Garden — and became just its 10th win. But that historical stat seems to mean nothing to this team, which is now 6-2 in the playoffs.
    “I think the same thing we did the game before and what I felt a lot of the game before that,” Cooper said of the Game 3 performance. “We’re in a playoff series and we’re playing like that. We’re skating. We’re physically engaged. They’re just playing responsible. That’s what they’re doing.”
    Ondrej Palat, who scored twice in the first 3:19 of the game, was not on the ice for practice at the Bruins’ practice facility Thursday, but there was no report. Ryan Callahan, who has played such a strong two-way game in the series, took Palat’s spot on the power play in practice.
    Palat’s early outburst marked the fastest two goals by the same player at the start of a playoff game since 1996.
    Boston’s Brad Marchand and Jake DeBrusk rested on “maintenance days” Thursday and are apparently not totally healthy. Coach Bruce Cassidy said they will be evaluated Friday morning.
    There was also a very good chance that rookie Ryan Donato could be among those added to the mix as Cassidy looks to “tinker” with his lineup.
    “They were maintenance days, so we’ll see how they are in the morning. I assume they’ll be fine tomorrow (for Game 4), but we’ll see then Ravens Authentic Jerseys ,” Cassidy said. “We’ll assess them in the morning, and we’ll probably tinker (with the lineup), but I’m not going to tell you who is going in or out now because we’ve got to get the healthy guys sorted out first, and then we’ll go from there.”
    After Wednesday’s game, the coach said, “We need to defend better, and part of that is intensity. My estimation, urgency, pick you word. We didn’t have it. You’ve got to manage the puck first, and then once you don’t have it anymore, you’ve got to have a certain level of structure and urgency to get it back, and we didn’t.
    “As the game went along, I think the will is there with the group; I don’t doubt that. They’re trying to be physical; they’re trying to play hard, but at the end of the day we made some mistakes in front of our net.
    “We’ve got to get back to, OK, what made us successful and play smart hockey Justin Bethel Color Rush Jersey , and the intensity will come. The group has a lot of will. I think we put one in front of the other, forgot to play a little bit.”
    Yanni Gourde became the second Lightning player to enjoy the birth of a child during the playoffs. Gourde’s baby girl was born Tuesday. He made it to Boston in time for the Wednesday morning skate and had an assist in the win.
    Steven Stamkos scored his first goal of the series Wednesday. It was into an empty net, but the Lightning have to feel good about their best player and captain hitting the score sheet. It was his second goal in eight playoff games, but he has five assists.
    BALTIMORE (AP) — The manner in which Baltimore manhandled Buffalo in the season opener seemingly validates the Ravens‘ effort to address their shortcomings of a year ago.
    Joe Flacco threw touchdown passes to each of his three new wide receivers, the defense was relentless in its debut for coordinator Don Martindale and special teams chipped in with a pair of field goals and a 51-yard punt return in a 47-3 rout Sunday.
    For one day, at least, everything went according to plan.
    “It’s great to see it unfold,” running back Javorius Allen said. “It’s like a flower, and it blossomed.”
    The Bills, on the other hand, had virtually all of their fears come true. They got nothing from the quarterback position, couldn’t move on the ground and never recovered after falling behind 14-0 in the rain before the game was 14 minutes old.
    “We got off to a very bad start. It seemed like we came out flat,” running back and team captain LeSean McCoy said. “Collectively, we didn’t play well. It wasn’t one guy’s fault, it was all of us.”
    Most of the scrutiny fell on starting quarterback Nathan Peterman, who went 5 for 18 for 24 yards and two interceptions before being replaced by rookie Josh Allen in the third quarter.
    And now Josh Bailey Jersey , one game into the season, there’s a quarterback controversy. Coach Sean McDermott will consider his options carefully leading up to Sunday’s home opener against the Los Angeles Chargers.
    “I’m going to look at everything,” he said. “It’s too early to go one way or another.”
    There was plenty of blame to throw around after Buffalo failed to make a first down until the third quarter and was penalized 10 times for 100 yards.
    “It was a full, total team effort there,” he said.
    Some things we learned about the Ravens and Bills:
    Although the Ravens have always had a reputation for an aggressive defense, their new-look offense helped pave the way for a lopsided win.
    Six players scored touchdowns, including receivers John Brown , Michael Crabtree and Willie Snead, who were signed as free agents to upgrade an ineffective passing game.
    “It’s just awesome because, in my opinion, we have one of the best defenses in the league,” Snead said. “Nobody really expects us to put up those kind of points and be as dominant on defense as we are.”
    The defense appreciated the assist.
    “To be a good team you need a good special teams, a good offense and a good defense,” linebacker Terrell Suggs said. “You can’t have one without the other two.”
    After losing veteran center Eric Wood and Pro Bowl left guard Richie Incognito, as well as trading away left tackle Cordy Glenn, the Bills hoped their revamped offensive line could jell in a hurry.
    It did not. The ground game sputtered and Buffalo yielded six sacks.
    “There were times when I thought we could have been better up front Authentic Richard Rodgers Jersey ,” McDermott said.
    ONE DOWN, 15 TO GO
    Lest anyone forget, the Ravens blanked Cincinnati on the road in last year’s opener, a victory that ultimately proved meaningless in a 9-7 season.

    “You can’t tell anything by one game,” Suggs said. “We got one in the can on our home field. It’s only one game. We think we can get better.”
    Despite playing without suspended cornerback Jimmy Smith and injured tackle Willie Henry, the Ravens were dominant on defense.
    “The guys that played did a phenomenal job,” Suggs said. “We have a couple of pieces out and we’re looking forward to getting those pieces back.”
    Buffalo was banking on a newly configured defensive line to limit the run, but the Ravens crossed up the Bills on a wet field by throwing the ball early.
    “We thought they were going to try to run the ball more than they did, especially with the weather conditions,” said defensive end Trent Murphy, an offseason free agent addition. “That was the biggest surprise.”
    Cornerback Tavon Young became the first Ravens defensive back to get two sacks in a game since Bennie Thompson in 1996.
    Young revealed that he hadn’t had a sack since his freshman year at Temple.
    “That’s crazy, isn’t it?” he said with a grin.
