Both Bruins goals in the period came on 2-on-1 opportunities. Brad Marchand  took advantage of Craig Anderson coming far out of his net to cut down the angle, and hit Recchi in front for a one-timer. Lucic added his 19th of the season and second of the game with 56 seconds remaining in the period.
Marc Savard  will not return to the game after taking a hit in the corner during the second period from Avalanche defenseman Matt Hunwick. Following the hit, Savard fell to the ice, holding his head before trainer Don DelNegro came to his aid.
Through two periods, Tim Thomas  has stopped 21 of 22 shots he has faced. The B’s have put 28 shots on Anderson.
