It hasn't been too often that the Bruins have been able to take a lead and then add to and maintain that lead in the last month or so.
But after establishing a 2-1 lead in the first period, the Bruins came out in the second period and extended the lead, and it was done courtesy of greenhorn Carter Camper.
Camper was recently called up to the NHL from Providence and, playing in only his third NHL game, came up with a big goal in the slot and put the Bruins up 3-1 with a backhand less than four minutes into the second period.
The Bruins dominated the period in shots, adding 16--giving them a game total of 29 so far. They managed to keep the Senators to only 6, putting them at 15 total shots this game.
Tim Thomas was on his game again in the second period, and even with some tricky shots from forward Jason Spezza, Thomas was able to keep his cool and stop the puck when he needed to.
