Second period summary: Bruins vs. Flames

Apparently, the Bruins wanted to show Marc Savard [1] they can score on the man advantage – even with their best power play weapon out with a serious concussion.

Savard said before the game he wished he could help them on the power play and general manager Peter Chiarelli smiled a painful smile in agreement since the Bruins entered play Saturday mired in a hideous 0-for-22 slump.

Well, after Dennis Seidenberg [2] finally found the net in the first period, the Bruins doubled their pleasure in the second to take a 3-0 lead heading into the second intermission.

David Krejci [3] fired a rocket from the low left point 89 seconds into the period to make it 2-0 and Zdeno Chara [4] scored on the man advantage from the high slot at 6:15 and all of sudden the Bruins were 3-for-3 on the PP.

They had a chance to make it 4-for-4 toward the end of the period but had to settle for a hat trick. And settle they did with a smile of satisfaction heading to the dressing room.

The Flames are outshooting the Bruins, 23-22, but Tim Thomas [5] has been perfect so far.
