Boston • Clearly, Tampa Bay star Steven Stamkos' injury was on everyone's minds. The Boston Bruins were able to get back to playing hockey a lot quicker after it happened.

Patrice Bergeron and Daniel Paille scored 20 seconds apart a few minutes after Stamkos was taken off the ice on a stretcher with a broken right leg, and the Bruins beat the Lightning 3-0 on Monday afternoon.

Stamkos was hurt with 7:11 to play in the second period. He entered the day tied with Pittsburgh's Sidney Crosby as the NHL's leading scorer. Stamkos got tied up with Boston defenseman Dougie Hamilton and crashed into the right post.

His left skate appeared to hit the post first before his right leg crashed into it around the shin area. He tried to get up twice before going down to the ice in pain, grabbing his leg just above the ankle.

The Lightning confirmed that Stamkos suffered a broken right tibia, and general manager Steve Yzerman said that Stamkos is expected to have surgery on Tuesday.
