Bruins Vs. Capitals, 2012 NHL Playoffs Game 7: Boston Evens Score, 1-1, After 2 Periods

The Boston Bruins have evened up the score after two periods in Game 7 of their Eastern Conference quarterfinal series against the Washington Capitals. Tyler Seguin tipped in a long slapshot by Johnny Boychuk that snuck behind Caps' goaltender Braden Holtby on his stick side.

The goal was Seguin's second of the postseason. The Caps did better on the offensive end in the second period, but were still outshot 14-8 by the Bruins. Tim Thomas now has 12 saves on 13 shots against. Holtby has turned back 24 of 25 shots faced. Rich Peverley leads all players with three shots on goal through two periods.

Neither team recorded a penalty, though Peverley pushed his luck when he pretended to slash Holtby after the goaltender pushed him down to the ice.
