Quick hits: Maroon and Spooner trade goals, 1-1 after 40 minutes

Quick hits: Maroon and Spooner trade goals, 1-1 after 40 minutes

Second period Quick hits:

-The Ducks struck first in the second period with 9:42 remaining on a great individual effort by Patrick Maroon who beat Tuukka Rask to give the Ducks the 1-0 lead. It was Maroon’s ninth goal of the season. Matt Bartkowski got flat out beat to the net in the process. Clayton Stoner and Sami Vatanen notched the assists, their seventh and 25th respectively.

-Boston had another chance on the power-play, but this time to try and tie the score–and they did. Ryan Spooner scored his sixth goal of the season tying the score at 1-1. It was Spooner’s first goal at TD Garden of his career. Bergeron and Krejci received the assists. The Black and Gold are now 1-for-3 on the man advantage through 40 minutes.

-With 31 seconds left, the Black and Gold received another power-play as Lucic was crashing towards the net, but was abruptly tripped up by Despres. It’s the B’s fourth power-play of the night. They will begin the third period with 1:30 remaining on the man-advantage. Starting the third period off with a go-ahead goal would be crucial for a struggling Boston team.

Second period stats:

-Bruins out shot the Ducks 9-8 in the middle frame.

-Ducks have blocked 11 shots to the Bruins three.

-Ducks have five takeaways to the B’s two.
