Zdeno Chara scores on power play to give Bruins lead

The Bruins were plenty to work with in the second period, and they made good on one of the four penalties the Devils took to give them a 2-1 lead entering the third period.

After drawing a Nick Palmieri tripping penalty at 8:08, Zdeno Chara [1] gave the B’s the lead at 8:17 off a nice pass from Milan Lucic [2]. It was the B’s first goal on 5-on-4 play since Feb. 18. The B’s are currently 1-for-3 on the man advantage for the night.

After trailing the Devils in shots on goal by a 12-1 margin at one point in the first period, the B’s battled back in that department and are now being outshot, 24-23. Of course, being on the power play for almost half a period will help to improve those numbers.
