Bruins 2, Kings 0 Second Period Update: Brad Marchand Extends Lead

Brad Marchand doubled the advantage for the Bruins with his 10th goal of the season in the second period to give Boston a 2-0 lead over the Kings. Marchand took a Patrice Bergeron pass directly off the faceoff and sent a blast into the back of the net beating Mike Quick. With the Marchand goal, the Bruins tied the Flyers for most ten-or-more goal scorers with four (Tyler Seguin, Chris Kelly and Milan Lucic).

Tukka Rask stayed perfect in net making 13 saves in the session, including several big saves against the Kings first line. The Bruins goalie has made 21 saves thus far and is in line for his first shutout of the season, he has made 32 consecutive saves over the past two games. Former Minuteman, Quick made six stops in the period for the Kings, to give him 17 through two.

Both teams had shots go off the post in the period with the Kings providing significantly more pressure. Los Angeles had a 5-on-3 opportunity with Steven Kampfer and David Krejci in the box late in the period but could not capitalize. Neither team has found success on the power play with the Kings (0-4) and the Bruins (0-3).

Winger Dustin Brown has taken a team-high four shots for the Kings, who have failed to score more than two goals in their past eight games. Rich Peverley who scored his fifth goal of the season in the first period, has three shots to lead the Bruins.
