After forty minutes of play, the Bruins fell behind 3-2 after registering only five shots on net the entire period. Meanwhile the Senators found the back of the net twice in the period, putting up 13 shots in the second frame.
Kyle Turris scored 7:43 into the period after taking a pass from captain Daniel Alfredsson down the ice. He wristed it past Tim Thomas for his fifth goal of the season.
The Senators then took a two goal lead six minutes later when defenseman Erik Karlsson caught Zdeno Chara off guard and formed a 2-on-1 in the Bruins defensive zone. He pulled the trigger near the hash marks and snapped it again past Thomas.
Thomas currently has 23 saves on 26 shots this game.
Milan Lucic gave the Bruins a little bit of hope with 45 seconds left in the period. The Senators defense fell apart a little bit and Lucic found an open slot with Peverley and he scored his 18th of the season, cutting the Senators lead to just a goal.
