Bruins lead Capitals, 2-1, after two

The Capitals are on the board after the second period, but it may be more the doing of some bad bounces behind the net for Matt Hunwick and Tyler Seguin than it was a product of Capitals rookie Marcus Johansson. It was Johansson’s first career goal, and he potted it after gathering a puck that shot out to him as a result of the botched pass.
The Bruins’ power play woes continued, with the team being able to add 53 seconds of passing on a 5-on-3 to their man advantage resume. On the other hand, the B’s were able to kill off a 5-on-3 of their own, so an effective penalty kill can serve as the special teams’ saving grace.
Milan Lucic, Mark Recchi, and Johnny Boychuk each have a team-high three shots on goal for the Bruins, while Alexander Ovechkin has just one shot on Tim Thomas. The Bruins’ netminder has made 17 saves, with the Capitals outshooting the B’s, 18-16, through two periods.
