Boston Bruins goaltender Daniel Vladar forcefully made his NHL debut Wednesday night after the Tampa Bay Lightning chased starter Jaroslav Halak during the second period.

Halak allowed four goals on 16 shots before exiting early. He started for the second consecutive night after the Bruins dropped Game 2 in overtime on Tuesday.

Tuukka Rask, Boston's longtime starter, left the bubble earlier in the playoffs to deal with a family matter.

Vladar, 23, was drafted by the Bruins 75th overall in 2015. He had a .936 save percentage along with a 1.79 goals against average across 25 games with Providence's AHL club this past season, while also making one start in the ECHL.
