Bruins trail Blues entering the third period

Posted By DJ Bean On November 6, 2010 @ 8:47 pm In General | No Comments

Nathan Horton [1] experienced deja vu in the second period, and the Bruins remain down, 1-0, entering the third period.

Horton had his second goal of the game waved off when he appeared to beat Jaroslav Halak top shelf. Much like with his non-goal in the first, the puck did not cross the line, much the dismay of the Bruins’ bench.

Andrew Ference [2] defended Mark Recchi [3] but the Bruins got the worst of it. Ference squared off with David Backes, who who had himself gone after Recchi, and Ference got an instigating minor tacked onto his five for fighting. With Shawn Thornton [4] serving the penalty, the Bruins stopped the Blues on the man advantage. The Blues are 0-for-4 on the power play through two periods.

Interestingly enough, the Bruins didn’t benefit when the shoe was on the other foot. Mark Stuart [5] laid out Jay McClement in the neutral zone and was immediately invited to dance with B.J. Crombeen. Crombeen did not receive an instigator penalty for the play.

Through two periods the shots are 25-18 in favor of the Blues.
