Nathan Horton is back on the B's bench following leaving the first period with an unspecified injury or equipment issue.... good news for the Bruins.
Some scary moments, as Seidenberg and Bergeron combine to hold of a vacant side of the net with Thomas unsure of where the puck was headed. Good bit of luck, as Lecavalier was waiting.
Stamkos took a Boychuk slapper off the face/visor and had to run off for significant repairs. Stamkos was back on the ice within a few minutes sporting a full cage and a giant gash on his nose.
Decent back-and forth play with some scary moments for both sides. Haven't seen many odd-man rushes at this point, with both teams playing tenatively in the neutral zone, not wanting to give up the mistake that could affect the balance of the game. No penalties so far fifteen minutes into period two.
Great chances at both ends, with both defenses and goalies making timely plays to keep the score knotted at zero through forty minutes of play. Mark Recchi nearly put the B's on top twice but the right pad of Dwayne Roloson denied him both times.
So far, all four Bruins lines look great, and we're witnessing some great performances from Peverley, Seguin, and the top-two lines.
