2nd Period summary: Bruins vs. Flyers Game 2

Posted By Mike Petraglia On May 3, 2010 @ 8:49 pm In General | 1 Comment

Meet Boston’s newest public enemy No. 1: Dan Carcillo. He figures to be a central figure in the third as the Bruins and Flyers are tied, 2-2, after 40 minutes.

After four-plus periods of wide-open play and scoring chances, the second period of Game 2 finally felt like the Flyers-Bruins of the 1970s.

There were hard hits, late hits and retaliatory penalty calls.

And there was the first true run at Marc Savard [1] after a whistle.

Six minutes into the period, with the game tied, 1-1, Dennis Wideman [2] fired a shot to the right of Brian Boucher [3], where Savard was standing. Flyers defenseman Kimmo Timonen and Carcillo went after Savard to protect Boucher.

Savard, frustrated, took a whack at Boucher after the whistle and was called for a slash.

Earlier, it was Carcillo who went up high on Steve Begin at center ice near the boards. Begin retaliated and was called for a cross-check. In both cases, the crowd fired up the Bruins penalty kill. After 40 minutes, the Bruins are a perfect 4-for-4 on the PK.

The Bruins exacted the best revenge when Miroslav Satan fired a shot five-hole on Boucher at 9:31 for a 2-1 Bruins lead. Dennis Wideman assisted on the goal and has a four-game playoff point streak while Satan has scored in five straight games for the Bruins, starting with Game 4 against Buffalo.

But these Fighting Flyers tied the game with just 24.8 seconds remaining when Daniel Briere came out of the penalty box and flew down the right wing, beating Rask with a laser wrister to the far side.
