Senators holding onto lead after two periods

Posted By DJ Bean On November 13, 2010 @ 8:44 pm In General | 1 Comment

With both teams posting goose eggs in the second period, the Bruins continue to trail the Senators with 20 minutes to play.

With the Dennis Wideman [1] whiners seemingly bored these days, Blake Wheeler [2] gave them some ammunition for him to be the next target. With the Bruins on the power play, Patrice Bergeron [3] put a shot up high on Brian Elliot. The puck bounced up and behind the Senators’ goaltender. Wheeler lunged at the puck to tip it in, but instead got a glove on it before it went in. The irony, of course, is that the slow-bouncing puck appeared to be going in without any help.

Despite the play, which was reviewed, the second line has been the best line on the ice tonight. Mark Recchi [4] has three shots through two periods, and Jordan Caron had a breakaway opportunity in which he was stopped by Elliot. Michael Ryder [5] also saw some time with Recchi and Wheeler late in the period.

The B’s outshot the Senators, 11-9 in the period and the Senators have a shots on goal advantage of 24-21 after two periods. Both teams are 0-for-2 on the power play tonight.
