Sounds of the game… Sharks 5, Bruins 2

Maybe the Bruins needed that.
Maybe it was a wakeup call.
And maybe, just maybe, Joe Thornton  is right.
When they’re on, no one can be the San Jose Sharks , not even the Black and Gold.
Thornton gave us all this little nugget afterward when he said no one can handle the Sharks .
Though for two periods on Tuesday night, they appeared ready to take the bite out of the Sharks, leading San Jose, 2-1.
But then they dropped the puck in the third and the Sharks circled and cycled and tore into the Bruins.
San Jose scored four times in the third period on their way to a 5-2 win, their 37th of the season, just two fewer than Boston and they drew to within four points of Boston’s 85 for top spot in the NHL .
Thornton did score in his return, making his comeback to Boston a pleasant one .
The Bruins could rely on just three lines because of injuries to Michael Ryder  and a nasty eye injury late in the first period to Petteri Nokelainen.
