Bruins lead Sabres, 4-1, after two
|11.03.10 at 8:38 pm ET|
What’s more surprising: That Tim Thomas allowed a goal or that it wasn’t the Bruins scoring on the Sabres’ power play? Thomas did the unthinkable in the second period by allowing a puck past him, but the Bruins lead, 4-1, after two nonetheless.
Drew Stafford picked up his fourth goal of the season at 16:39 with Blake Wheeler in the bin for slashing, but a Michael Ryder tally early on in the period in which he did all the work meant that the Bruins once again hold a three-goal lead at period’s end.
Tyler Seguin achieved another career first when he took a minor penalty for hooking Andrej Sekera. All in all 44 penalty minutes were doled out between the two teams in the rather chippy period.
Patrick Lalime, who replaced Jhonas Enroth at the beginning of the period, made seven saves on eight shots. Thomas has 21 saves on 22 shots.
