End of 40: Bruins 0, Capitals 2

SHOTS ON GOAL:
Bruins: (9) 15
Caps: (4) 10

PENALTY MINUTES:
Bruins: 9
Caps: 13

POWER PLAY:
Bruins: 0/4
Caps: 0/2

HITS:
Bruins: 17
Caps: 19

FACE-OFFS:
Bruins: 14-for-36 (39%)
Caps: 22-for-36 (61%)


NOTES:

  • Boston had three unsuccessful power plays this period; a four- and two-minute each. The B’s dumped six total shots on goal, and had a few great opportunities from Michael Ryder and Mark Recchi, but couldn’t capitalize on the Caps man-down…leaving the goose egg for the home team.
  • Backstrom stikes again…tipping home a Jeff Schultz blast from the point through the five-hole of Thomas to put Washington up 2-0.
  • Blake Wheeler had a nice scoring opportunity within the last couple of minutes, but was up-ended over Washington’s goalie, Braden Holtby, and headed down the tunnel to the B’s locker room. No update just yet.
  • This physical contest is heating up, as Chara and Jason Chimera had to be broken up after the final horn. We’ll see how this spills over into the third…
  • Thomas faced just four shots this period, but had that one unfortunate one slip past him. The Capitals switched net-minder 13 minutes into the second — Holtby for Sabourin.
  • Chara and Lucic share the Bruins’ lead with four hits each; Krejci tops the B’s tonight with three shots on goal; Campbell is 3-for-6 on the face-off dot.
  • I’m really liking what I see from Bartkowski. The 22-year-old blue-liner has logged over 11 minutes of ice time; 1:50 on the PP and 1:09 on the PK. He’s looked solid in his own end and is certainly  going to make it tough for Adam McQuaid this season to regain the Bruins’ No. 7 D-man status again this season.

PPI:
Recchi–Krejci–Ryder
Chara–Hunwick

(Lucic–Bergeron–Horton)

PPII:
Lucic–Seguin–Horton
Boychuk–Bergeron

(Recchi–Krejci–Wheeler)

PK:
Krejci–Wheeler
Ference–Seidenberg

Bergeron–Caron — Paille–Campbell
Chara–Boychuk
