Second period summary: Bruins vs. Flames 03.27.10 at 2:39 pm ET
By   |  No Comments

Apparently, the Bruins wanted to show Marc Savard they can score on the man advantage – even with their best power play weapon out with a serious concussion.

Savard said before the game he wished he could help them on the power play and general manager Peter Chiarelli smiled a painful smile in agreement since the Bruins entered play Saturday mired in a hideous 0-for-22 slump.

Well, after Dennis Seidenberg finally found the net in the first period, the Bruins doubled their pleasure in the second to take a 3-0 lead heading into the second intermission.

David Krejci fired a rocket from the low left point 89 seconds into the period to make it 2-0 and Zdeno Chara scored on the man advantage from the high slot at 6:15 and all of sudden the Bruins were 3-for-3 on the PP.

They had a chance to make it 4-for-4 toward the end of the period but had to settle for a hat trick. And settle they did with a smile of satisfaction heading to the dressing room.

The Flames are outshooting the Bruins, 23-22, but Tim Thomas has been perfect so far.

Thanks to the Collective Bargaining Agreement between the NHL and its players, the Bruins won’t have to worry about stepping back onto the ice for the next couple of days.

And thanks to their power play on Wednesday night, they can take nice thoughts with them over the Christmas break.

The Bruins broke an 0-for-13 drought on the power play, scoring three times in five chances on Wednesday night in a 6-4 win against the Atlanta Thrashers at TD Garden – a team by the way they will face exactly one week later on the same sheet of ice.

The Bruins, now with 43 points, also finished up the break with two key wins against Ottawa and Atlanta, two teams that coming into the week, were neck-and-neck with the Bruins for 4th and 5th place in the Eastern Conference.

Here are some of the highlights from a happy locker room as the Bruins take a break before lacing them up again on Sunday in Florida against the Panthers and Monday in St. Pete against the Lightning.

Marc Savard said it was an exciting win.

Savard said it was nice to finally get the power play working.

Mark Recchi said it was big to get wins against Ottawa and Atlanta before the break.

Coach Claude Julien said what’s most important is the Bruins finding a way to win.

Julien said the team dealt with the holiday distractions.

Captain Zdeno Chara said it was big to win with Ottawa and Atlanta chasing them in the East.

Chara said it was nice to finally see the power play clicking.
