After a highly defensive oriented first period, the Bruins and Capitals both improved their offensive attack which resulted in five totals goals. The Capitals scoring three, the Bruins scoring two. Here's how it happened.

The B's held their early 1-0 lead in the second period and quickly saw it decimate. With just a little over two minutes past in the period, Capitals forward Cody Eakin beat Tuukka Rask four his fourth goal of the season. Just twenty seconds later, the Caps found the back of the net via a Mathieu Perreault goal. The Caps now found themselves ahead in this one, 2-1.

The B's were able to respond ten minutes with a Tyler Seguin wrister that beat Tomas Vokoun and tied the game at 2-2. The Caps however regained the lead off another goal by Perreault which put them back ahead, 3-2.

Just before the end of the period, Perreault was sent to the penalty box for hooking, which gave the B's a chance to even the score. They did just that, and it came off the stick of Brad Marchand, fresh off his suspension, to make the score 3-3 off a power play goal.

There were four penalties in the second, with Boston defenseman Zdeno Chara and Capitals forward Jason Chimera both being sent to the penalty box for roughing calls. Meanwhile, the Bruins' penalty killing unit successfully killed off a penalty that saw Adam McQuaid go to the box.

Both goalies struggled in the second period as Tuukka Rask only saved 15 of 18 shots from the Capitals while Tomas Vokoun has only saved 23 of 26 shots from the B's
