Spooner avoids the post the second time around

BOSTON — After hitting the post on a three-on-one earlier in the period, Ryan Spooner made good on a knuckling Max Sauve rebound to make it a tie game as the Bruins and Islanders prepare for the third period. Spooner batted the floating rebound down and past Islanders goaltender Kevin Poulin.

As expected, the game did get a little more physical in the second period, with Islanders forward Travis Hamonic getting tossed for getting his second fighting major of the series. He took a few heavy blows from Lane MacDermid.

The Bruins outshot the Islanders, 10-8, in the period, but still have 14 to New York’s 20.
