Tim Thomas seemed to do every except score for the Bruins in the second period, fending off 12 Sharks shots in the middle frame without letting one go to the back of his net.
Meanwhile, the Bruins still look clueless and picked up only four more shots on net for a total of nine on the night. The shots on goal heavily favor San Jose 20-9 through 40 minutes.
Less than five minutes into the second period, Tim Thomas was forced to make two creative saves against the Sharks, both which could have very easily been in the back of the net--first on Dan Boyle and a stacked pads save against Martin Havlat just a minute later.
The B's did have an opportunity on the power play, with Justin Braun going to the sin bin for tripping, but could not convert on it. In fact, even that looked anemic.
The Bruins have fewer shots on net than the Maple Leafs had on the Bruins after two periods on Monday.
