Bruins Vs. Devils Score Update: B's Give Up Three Unanswered Goals; Down 3-2 After Two Periods

After posting two quick goals in the first period, the Bruins entered the second period and gave up three unanswered goals to the Devils, falling quickly behind in all aspects of the game.

Both teams were able to get some quality scoring chances, each with 11 shots in the second period, but it was Boston who was out of sorts and gave up some shooting lanes and positioning that led to the goals.

The second period started off radically different than the first, as the Bruins were outshot 5-0 in the first part of the period. They were giving up a lot of turnovers, and didn't have quite the momentum or speed as they did in the first.

6:27 into the period, Zach Parise scored his 24th goal of the season, with a snap shot past Thomas, putting them within one goal of the Bruins early on.

Teammate Patrik Elias followed en suite eight minutes later, backhanding in through Thomas, while David Clarkson put some extra emphasis on the period with less than three minutes to go, with a wrap around goal for his team-leading 25th goal of the season.

Bruins defenseman Joe Corvo looked out of sorts for much of the period, and was benched after Elias scored his goal, giving up turnovers in each of the first two goals.
