I wouldn’t say that the Tampa Bay Lightning are back to their second period slump, but they weren’t as strong as they were in the first. The Boston Bruins came out tough, ready to take the game back after the 2-0 deficit in the first.

A snapshot by Tyler Seguin opened up the Boston scoring on a power play goal, assisted by Dougie Hamilton and David Krejci. Rich Peverley‘s snapshot tied the game at 4:39 with assists by Adam McQuaid and Daniel Paille.

The second period ended with 1 fight, 6 penalties, and 2 goals. The Tampa Bay Lightning had 8 shots on goal, the Bruins 9.

The third period will be intense. Both teams have been playing hard, and both are hungry for the win. With the score even at 2-2, the shots almost even at 13-16, and penalties off the charts, it’s anyone’s game.
