The Bruins should be thrilled that they are only down 1-0 after the second period of play. Though there were no goals in the middle frame, the Senators sure tried to make it as hard for the Bruins to stay in the game as they could.
Adding another 18 shots in the second period alone has them ahead in shots 31-15 while the B's found just eight more shots against Robin Lehner.
Lehner has only played two games this season, but has two wins and only four goals against.
Meanwhile, Bruins goaltender Tim Thomas has continued to remain lights out, stopping everything that was shot at him this period, including a penalty kill situation courtesy of Milan Lucic.
The most exciting moment of the period came halfway through the frame, and a struggle in front of the net had Thomas down on the ice and looking in the wrong direction. Erik Condra had a gaping wide open net in front of him, right in front of the crease, but shot it wide, keeping his team at just the one goal.
Things started to get a bit physical as well, and twice Bruins wanted to drop their gloves and dance, but Ottawa wouldn't bite.
