Nope. No. Zero 2nd period sir.
A goal by Landon “Billy Dee Williams” Ferraro puts the Bruins up 1-0. Liking that Acciari is getting PK time in his first NHL game too.

Marchand, layin’ down on the job as always
The Boston Bruins (34-23-6 74pts) take on the Calgary
Hamiltons Flames (26-32-4 56pts) tonight at the TD garden, their second match up of the season. Boston begins the final stretch of the season adding Lee Stempniak and John Michael Liles at the deadline. Calgary moved Kris Russel and David Jones at the deadline and acquired Jyrki Jokipakka, Brett Pollock, and Niklas Backstrom. Also Calgary parted ways with Jiri Hudler and Markus Grandlund. Calgary has lost 5 straight games and 2-7-1 in their last 10. Bruins are 6-4-0 in their last 10 and are looking to rebound from the 4-1 beating from Tampa, boy does that all sound familiar huh?

What’s on tap tonight!
The good: Kevan Miller scored his fifth goal of the season
The not so good: Alex Killorn tied it up with a power play goal. Then Callahan put Tampa up 2-1 after McQuaid fell down and went boom.
Let’s not hit people in the head or fall down anymore. Bad things happen.
It’s Trade Deadline Eve. Don’t forget to leave milk and cookies out for Santa Sweeney and be sure to keep the Trade Tracker bookmarked.
As for the task at hand:
It’s a battle for second place tonight as the Bruins take on The Tampa Bay Lightning. Both teams are 6-4-0 in their last ten games. The Lighting are riding a 5 game win streak with Stamkos scoring in those five games. Bruins are hoping to improve on their 13-15-3 home record while Tampa has gone 15-12-2 on the road.
What’s on tap?
The second period wasn’t catastrophic. That was nice, I guess.
