Second period summary: Bruins-Islanders

Posted By DJ Bean On March 6, 2010 @ 3:48 pm In General | 1 Comment

With Patrice Bergeron [1] in the box, Mark Streit, off a feed from Kyle Okposo, sent a shot in on Thomas from the circle. Thomas, unsure of there the puck was, satyed totally still as Josh Bailey knocked it in at 17:42 to tie the game at one goal apiece.

Quick puck movement from Mark Stuart [2] and Miroslav Satan and finally to David Krejci [3] put the Bruins back on top shortly thereafter at 14:46. It was Krejci’s 12th of the season.

After failing to put either of their two shots from their first powerplay past Dwayne Roloson, a Dylan Reese interfence penalty gave the Bruins a shot at redemption. They made good with a little help from Nassau Colliseum.

A slapshot from Patrice Bergeron took an odd bounce off the glass to the right of Dwayne Roloson and shot back to the right of the Islanders goaltender. Marc Savard [4] took control of it with with his foot and backhanded it into the empty net for his 10th goal of the season.

Scary moment with 3:54 remaining when Michael Ryder [5] crushed Blake Comeau and left him motionless for a few minutes in the corner. Comeau got up and skated off the ice and Ryder was given a five-minute major for hitting from behind in addition to a game misconduct.

After the Bruins dominated offensively in the first period, the Islanders outshot the B’s in the second, 22-12, to bring the total shots on goal to 28-26 in favor of Boston.
