The Bruins entered the second period with a 1-0 lead, and thanks to a very late shorthanded goal by Andrei Loktionov, the two teams enter the final period tied at one.
Both teams picked up the physicality in the second period as we saw our first fight of the evening. Jordan Nolan and Bobby Robins dropped the gloves in what was a very spirited bout.
The line of Sauve, Spooner and Tardif has been the best by far for the Bruins as they have been buzzing in the Monarchs zone all night.
After a relatively quiet first period, Jordan Caron—who has seen time on the power play and penalty kill—had himself a nice period creating scoring chances and just missing out on extending the Bruins lead at the time.
Despite the goal, Hutchinson still has had himself one heck of a game, and is a key reason as to why this is a tied game.
The Bruins outshot the Monarchs 7-6 in the second and have outshot them in total 22-15 for the evening.
