End of 40: Bruins 1, Sabres 1

  • Bad news for the Bruins’ back-end — Mark Stuart was injured and didn’t return, nor will he return to the game tonight. (more on that later). Zdeno Chara has logged 18:55 TOI tonight, and is sure to his the half hour mark by the end of this one.
  • But good news, although the Sabres tied it up on Luke Adam’s first NHL career goal — Boston holds a 10-0-1 record thus far when lighting the lamp first, and have outscored their opponents 32-11 in the third period. That +21 differential is the largest single-period advantage in the NHL.
  • The B’s upped their physical play in this period, along with some more scoring opportunities. Blake Wheeler seems to create an odd-man break every single game while shorthanded. He broke out, while killing Tyler Seguin’s two minute high-sticking call, with PK linemate David Krejci on a nice scoring opportunity.  Next line: Patrice Bergeron fed Mark Recchi all alone on the PK, but the 42-year-old hit the iron on Miller’s blocker side.
  • Krecji is struggling on the face-off dot tonight, winning just 2-of-7 draws thus far.
