Bruins 2 Senators 1 after 40

The Bruins remain ahead 2-1 at the end of two periods. Tyler Seguin’s goal is the difference in the game to this point. The Senators have been pressuring Khudobin, but he has turned away 31 of 32 shots through two frames.

Three observations I made after the second period:

1. Must capitalize on the PP- The Bruins had a chance early on in the second period to extend their 2-1 lead further, but could not capitalize on the man advantage. Sure, Jarmir Jagr is on his way to Boston, but this group of players needs the confidence to score without him out there.

2. The Bruins held a lead for 20 minutes- It has been awfully hard for the Black and Gold to hold a lead nowadays so for them to take a 2-1 lead into the third period is great, but a lead in the third period has been the trouble for the B’s. The team needs to play their brand of hockey-fast and physical.

3. Patrice Bergeron- Bergeron left the game about half way through the second period and did not return. He took an inadvertent elbow to the head and skated immediately off. This is a bad sign for the Bruins. They can ill-afford to lose a player like Bergeron. He is too good of a two-way player. He plays hard every shift and every game up four goals or down three. He is a staple on this team.

We will head to the third period with the Bruins leading 2-1. Check back later on for Chris’ final game analysis.
