Bruins sleeping in Sunrise

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 [1] 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)
