Another scoreless period means the Bruins and Senators will enter the third period knotted at zero. While the period did not feature the game's first goal, it did feature the contest's first penalty in the form of a Jason Spezza tripping minor for taking down Brad Marchand. The B's failed to convert on the power play, though a bid from Zdeno Chara was reviewed. Once again, it was the second line that came up with a major scoring bid for the Bruins. Zack Smith used his skate to break up a scoring opportunity between Patrice Bergeron and Mark Recchi. The play led to a breakaway for Jason Spezza, with Tuukka Rask coming through with one of his 12 saves in the period. UNH alum Bobby Butler hit the crossbar behind Rask with less than 30 seconds in the period.
