Bruins 1, Sharks 2 Final Score: Winnik Scores Early In Third, B's Fall 2-1

The Bruins used up all their offensive power against the Maple Leafs it seemed, as they could only buy one goal in tonight's 2-1 loss against the San Jose Sharks.

Heading into the third period, they were down 1-0 with 20 minutes of hockey left to play and plenty of motivation to score a goal. However, that seemed to end quickly after Daniel Winnik scored his first goal in 44 games-his 6th goal this season-to put the Sharks up 2-0 less than three minutes into the final frame.

Bruins captain Zdeno Chara tried to get some life back on his team, but it was too little too late with 4:15 left to go in the game, and the Bruins fell for the first time in three games.

Earlier in the game, the Sharks took an early 1-0 lead thanks to forward Joe Pavelski who now has 27 goals this season, and who capitalized off a number of Bruins mistakes early on.

Tim Thomas made 25 saves on 27 shots and kept his team in the game for the majority of the time they were on the ice. The B's still were outshot by an absurd amount, 27-17, but they were able to put up more than the Sharks in the third period.

Boston continues it's Western road trip, and will play the Kings on Saturday.
