Nathan Horton was the center of attention in the second period, scoring the go-ahead power play goal to give the B's their 2-1 lead and leaving the ice after an entertaining bout. Five seconds into a high-sticking double-minor on Ryan Shannon, Horton scored his 26th of the season when he backhanded one past Curtis McElhinney off a rebound from a Zdeno Chara blast from the point. After a solid fight with Zack Smith at 9:24, Horton left the ice and headed down the tunnel. He would end up returning to the ice with over five minutes remaining, so it seems the Bruins can breathe a sigh of relief. In regards to the record watch, Tim Thomas stopped nineshots. His save percentage is now at .9377. Dominik Hasek's record is .9366.
