Bruins sleeping in Sunrise
|02.13.10 at 8:40 pm ET|
The Bruins are sleep walking their way through southern Florida.
There was not much action through the second period. Boston played a sleepy and, at times, sloppy period where it could not get a lot of chances created and fought the Panthers good puck possession through the neutral and defensive zones.
Rookie defenseman Adam McQuaid perhaps got a little juices flowing for the Bruins at 15:06 when he took exception to a high and (slightly) late hit from Panthers forward Victor Oreskovich. McQuaid threw a flurry of punches at Oreskovich right in front of the Bruins bench as he makes his case to stay with the Bruins and deserves and NHL roster spot.
The third period will start the same way as the second as the Panthers lead 2-1.
Shots through second (total):
Bruins — 8 (18)
Panthers – 11 (19)
