The Sabres picked it up in the second period, and after two, are tied with the Bruins, 2-2. Nathan Horton turned the puck over while trying to break it out, and the play led to Cody McCormick clanking a shot off the post and sending the rebound past Tuukka Task just 1:04 into the period. The Bruins would re-take the lead at 4:51 on a bang-bang-bang play that was assisted by Shawn Thornton and Blake Wheeler. Later in the period, with Wheeler in the box for goaltender interference, the Bruins had a couple of big shorthanded opportunities. Ryan Miller stopping Mark Recchi early on making another big save on a 3-on-2 from Zdeno Chara. The Sabres' did make up for it, with Nathan Gerbe scoring on the power play at 10:36. Through two, the Sabres have outshot the Bruins, 24-22.
